However, Mac provides the feature of Trash that holds all deleted files. The files, which are deleted accidentally, can be restored from Mac Trash. To recover lost files on Mac you should make use of good Mac file recovery application. Some of the instances that cause file loss from the Mac system are listed here-
- Accidental deletion of files using Command + Delete keys– If files are deleted using Command + Delete keys combination then those deleted files will not move to Trash and hence it is not possible to restore those deleted files from Mac Trash.
- Deletion of files using third party applications– If any third party tool is used to partition the drive then if any error occurs, you may lose some of the files from your system. Because of error occurrences the files present in the hard drive may become inaccessible.
- File loss due to journal corruption– Journal is the one, which holds all the information regarding the changes made to the files present in the system. If journal gets corrupted due to any reason then you may lose files from your system.
