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:
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.
Mac hard drive retrieval software is most suitable data recovery tool to come out of such data loss situations in Mac OS. The features of this software include lost data recovery from Mac OS X partitions. This software has advanced scanning algorithm to perform hard drive recovery on Mac. This software restores data from volumes which refuse to mount. It recovers data from formatted and re-formatted volumes or drives. It recovers all the media files from external hard disk & you can know more about this on http://www.myharddriverecovery.net/how-to-recover-data-from-external-hard-drive.html. It supports Intel and Power PC Mac platforms. Different files types can be recovered and identified based on their unique signatures. Data deleted from Trash can also be retrieved by this software. It also supports data recovery from HFS+, HFSX, FAT partitions. Click here to know about hard drive recovery of files of different types. Steps for using this software are described in details below.
Steps to perform hard drive recovery from Macbook Air:
Step 1: Download and launch the free demo version of "Mac hard drive recovery software" to recover hard drive data. Select "Recover Volumes/Drives" option from the main screen as shown in Figure 1 and proceed.
