If you are unfortunate enough to suffer a hard drive crash on your Apple desktop or laptop, you may have a need to restore lost files. Data problems can occur for a number of reasons but in the majority of cases are linked to deleting files by mistake or accidental data erasure rendering important files no longer found. Files are often accidentally deleted from a Mac or even from the Trash in error. Another reason for loss of data is down to accidental Mac hard drive formats or partition errors.
Lost and deleted files on your Apple Mac are often recoverable and restoration is usually highly successful.
Missing data is rarely unrecoverable in the above situations and your Apple files can usually be restored by seeking a professional Mac Data Recovery Service and asking for help.
The difference between file recovery and hard drive data retrieval if the disk or drive has suffered from a hardware failure. In this case, individual or multiple files are lost however the media they are stored on still works ok.
If you suspect your drive to be failing we advise to shutdown and seek immediate expert and professional help to avoid permanent loss of data.
There are a number of Mac compatible data recovery applications available on the Apple market which maybe be ok to use when recovering ‘low risk data’ however we strongly advise against using recovery software if your hard drive is faulty and/or your missing data is business critical, valuable or irreplaceable.
Some signs of Apple/Mac hard drive failure to look out for:
- Flashing Question Mark at start up
- Unmountable volume
- The drive is no longer recognised
