Recover photos on Mac

As a matter of fact, when you delete files from Mac or storage devices, the deleted files are not actually gone permanently-they are still saved in the drive or storage device which they were stored before.

Process for Mac File Recovery Software to Recover Deleted Files

Generally speaking, Mac data recovery software processes in the steps below:

  • 1) You need to choose the path which your lost data were stored before. (If your files were stored on the storage device, connect it to your Mac and choose it.)
  • 2) Start the scanning operation (Scanning may take for a while so you can go for a cup of tea).
  • 3) When scanning is done, you can preview the file (only photo files) to make decision which files you want to recover and hit button "Recovery".

Mac Data Recovery Q & A

Q. My hard drive has been formatted since a long time and cannot recover the files on it, what can I do?

A. Yes, you can recover the data. But you need to take your Mac hard drive (I do believe you are using Mac, if not, you will not ask question here) to the repair shop to fix. When the hard drive is fixed, you will find that you got a "new" hard drive-all the files are not in the hard drive anymore. But this doesn't mean you can not recover files. I always consider that fix the hard drive like formatting the hard drive. The operating system will not really delete the files. It just delete the catalog and free up the space of the files so that there is enough space for you to store the new files. But if you put new files into this drive,the new files will occupy the the space which is belonging to the "deleted files", this is the so called data overwritten situation. Once this happens, you will lose the chance to get back your files.

Q. I clean up my Trash Bin and then find that some files are still needed. How to recover the already emptied files?

A. Many users will consider that after emptying the Mac trash, the files which are in the trash are all gone. Bye bye files. Is that real? No, it is not. Users can still have the chance to get the files back. So I would like to talk about why the files can be got back. After you delete files or empty the Mac trash, the files are not really deleted. When you operate the deletion command, the operating system is going to free up the space of the files so that this space can be used by any new files you will put into the drive later. At this moment, the files are not available to be read or wrote, and you cannot find them anywhere on your hard drive. There is still chance for you to get it back. But if you put any new files into the path where the lost files were stored before, you may cause the data overwritten situation and you will lose the chance to recover the files. Why? Because the new files may take the space of the “deleted files”,once they take the space, the “deleted files” which can be recovered before the data overwritten happen will be lost forever. So, if data loss happens, remember stop using your Mac (or the storage device which the lost files were there), turn to Google to search the methods to get your data back.

Q. How to find a lost file in Microsoft Office Autorecovery

A. Office > Office 2011 AutoRecovery. You can change the AutoRecovery folder location, and you SHOULD change it to a Dropbox (or iCloud) folder location. The problem is, if you "Don't Save" when you close a file, the file will not be saved, AND the AutoRecover file will be deleted! Auurgh!Windows users, have the option to "Keep the last autosaved version. But Mac users do not have that option! But here's the trick: Time Machine may have created a Backup of the AutoRecover file! By default, Time Machine creates a backup once per hour, although you can change the backup frequency as desrcibed here: Understand that it is better to plan in advance by saving frequently, and using Dropbox for your AutoRecovery folder, but if you have Time Machine you are likely able to recover your AutoRecover file after clicking "Don't Save". "Enter Time Machine" by clicking the Time Machine icon on the menu bar Navigate to the last Time Machine Backup Navigate to the AutoRecovery folder, which by default is at Users > usernamehomefolder > Library > Application Support > Microsoft > Office > Office 2011 AutoRecovery "Restore" the AutoRecover file (it will ask what folder you want to restore the file to) Open the AutoRecover file, and re-save your recovered work.
