Mac OS X is one of the most advanced operating systems introduced by Apple. It is enriched with several useful features and designed using UNIX. It uses HFS, HFS+ file systems in order to arrange files or data on its hard drives. The Mac operating system has evolved with a number of different versions from a decade some of them are Panther, Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard etc. Hard drives are otherwise called non-volatile storage devices which have extra storage capacity and higher data transfer rate than other disk drives. Each hard disk has a spindle which can hold more than one flat circular disk that are called platter. They are basically employed for storing and accessing of digital information. They are also known as Hard Disk Drive (HDD). SATA, SCSI and IDE are some commonly used hard drives. Hard drives are one of the popular storage devices now-a-days. They are commonly used for storing valuable files and folders. Data loss from hard drive on Mac OS is as common as that in Windows operating system. Even though Mac OS system provides different safety steps to protect private data, still data loss instances are taking place in the Mac system. Hard drive recovery software helps you to recover Mac data from your system.

Some common data loss situations in Mac operating system are described below:

  • Data loss due to unintended actions: Data from the Mac volume can be lost due to human errors like deleting any data instead of any other data by using Shift + Delete keys, formatting wrong Mac volume while trying to format some other volume, by third party application, losing data due to failed defragmentation, data lost due to unexpected conditions like improper turn off of computer or power failure problem.

  • Improper Formatting/Reformatting: Data can be lost from Mac volume because of improper formatting/reformatting i.e. formatting hard drive without proper data backup. Upgradation of the Mac operating system without proper data backup can be the other cause of data loss in Mac hard drive. However, a good formatted hard drive recovery tool can solve the issue in such a scenario. Visit this link to know more.

  • Crashed Hard drive: When Mac volume fails to boot or is damaged physically, the data stored in it becomes inaccessible giving rise to data loss.

  • Error in File System Conversion: Error in file system conversion on Macintosh operating system could be another cause of data loss in Mac volume.

  • Partitioning Error: Error occurred during partitioning in Mac OS X could be one of the reasons for Mac data loss. Data from Mac OS may be lost because of Apple partition map corruption. Journal corruption is also one of the causes for data loss in Macbook Air.

Apart from the file loss scenarios you need to take some precautionary steps, in order to avoid further data loss from Mac hard drive in future.

  • Ensure that you have taken proper data backup when you are going to reinstall the operating system or formatting any partition. As a result you wont be losing any data in both of these cases.
  • Try to avoid deleting any data using Shift + Delete key combination. First delete then using Delete option only and if you feel that the deleted data is not necessary then delete them from Trash Bin.
  • If you have already lost data from hard drive in Mac operating system then stop using that hard drive. This is because if the same hard drive is used for saving new data then the lost data might get overwritten with the new data. Once the lost data gets overwritten then it can never be restored using any data recovery software.
