If anyone of us has deleted files wrongly, don’t panic. In this article we will talk about deleted files and the method to restore deleted files, from now on, it’s unnecessary for us to worry about file loss.
About Data Loss
When we open Mac Trash on desktop, we will find we could still get the files back to the location where they located. However, it will puzzle us if we choose Empty the Mac Trash, nothing will be left. Now let’s talk about it.
When a file is deleted from your Mac Trash, it is not really deleted. It is just removed from the directory of files in the folder and moved into Mac Trash, and it could be easily restored as long as the file remains there with no problem at all. So the first thing to do when we want to restore deleted file is to look in the Trash Bin.
If we empty the Mac Trash, the files will totally disappear from our sight. The fact is that we still have chances to restore the deleted files. A frequent misunderstanding is that the System Restore feature of Mac can be used to recover deleted files. However, it is not helpful to restore deleted files outside system partition. System Restore is developed specifically to restore system files back to an earlier state, the purpose of which is to enable easy recovery when a software update, installation or removal has an adverse effect on the system. It provides a simple way to restore system to a point in time when everything work.
It would be very annoying if we cannot restore deleted files after using “Restore all items” or System Restore. Here we will talk about the method to restore deleted files.
