Have you ever meet data loss on your Mac machine (iMac, MacBook) and wondered if there is a way to rescue? The following shows a couple of reasons for data soss situations you may suffer:
Mac machine malfunction (logical damage)
When Mac drive fails, we may not get the access of important files and come across strange behavior of your system. The most common symptoms of a bad Mac drive are as follows:
• File system corruption
• Disk is unreadable
• No mountable file system; hard drive cannot be mounted

Human improper operation (human error)
• Accidentally or intentionally delete valuable data such as Command+ Delete, and emptying trash bin
• Format HD without backup

All the above problems of data loss are logical damages. The drive is physically intact, but we cannot access data, application, and even operating system stored on it.
3 Steps to Resuce Data on Mac OS X
As what mentioned above, you may lose our valuable data from Mac OS X due to various reasons. The solutions should vary based on the cause. To do data rescue Mac, what you should do first to identify the real cause of data loss.
For the data loss due to Mac machine malfunction, you can try to do data rescue (Mac) with the help of ‘Disk Utility’, an inbuilt utility of Mac OS X operating system that can check integrity and consistency of Macintosh HD.
For human errors, you can do data rescue Mac with Time Machine. Time Machine always makes backup our data every hour. Once we lost our data, just enter your Time Machine browser, and we can recover your Mac files from Time Machine backup.
