Today, in our post we have discussed about the most common problem faced by us accidentally deleting of files, photos, documents, videos, or other files from our device specifically we have talked about MAC devices in the post.
This is one of the most frustrating and worst things to experience in person. Specially, if you’ve owned your machine for a long time. Your old documents are all gone, just as surely as if they were thrown in the trash. But you need not to worry as we have recently reviewed a software from iBoysoft named iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac which is quite effective in the recovery of your important data.

Can you really recover a deleted file?

First, Lets us talk about the concept on which data recovery software works.

Can the data be recovered 100%? Talking, about our experience we were able to recover our deleted data with very good accuracy but it’s not a 100% assured that your data can be recovered the best option is to recover the data ASAP after deleting as When you delete a file even from the Trash, its data is not overwritten, only that space is marked as free.

Fortunately, if you use the iBoysoft Data recovery software vast majority of files that appear lost are still on the disk and can therefore be retrieved.

Step 5: Tick the box in front of the files you want to recover and click Recover on the lower right corner.

Step 6: Select a location for the recovered files. Don’t save them on its original volume or disk in case of data loss again.

Step 7: Remember to check if you can find all deleted or lost files on the disk or folder you save them before leaving the results page. If it doesn’t successfully recover all files and you already leave the result page, you’ll have to scan again and it takes time.

Obviously, after obtaining the data, it is key to save it properly so that another similar incident does not occur again. A good idea is rule 3-2-1, which is to have 3 backups in total, with 2 copies in different drives and 1 copy in a different geographic location.

For a personal user, this would be as simple as saving the first copy on the Mac itself, the second copy on a USB stick or external disk, and the third copy on iCloud or another cloud storage platform.
