When a file is deleted from your computer, you just lose the directions of the file in the folder, like the name of a chapter is removed from the book's index. The file is removed to the "Recycle Bin" and still 100% exists with intact data on it. It is easy to recover deleted data from the "Recycle Bin" with the "Restore" option.
When you empty the "Recycle Bin" or press "Shift + Delete" to deal with your files (it bypasses "Recycle Bin" for file deletion), there are still chances to recover deleted data in these scenarios. Though the space occupied by these files is reused by other files, it doesn't get reused straight away. Therefore, the data they contains still stay on your hard drive for some time to come and may be recovered by using some deleted data Recovery software.
Have you accidently formatted your hard drive or portable devices? During or after the formatting, you may find that you have not created a backup of your important data in advance. In fact, quick format does not delete the data. It just marks the head of the section where the data locals by a kind of symbols telling system that this section is re-useable. During a formatting, the system is allowed to re-use the space on your drive by overwriting existing files. Therefore, it is quiet easy to recover formatted data if there is no new data stored after formatting with some specifically designed formatted data Recovery software.
Now that we are likely to lose our data in these or those scenarios, why not get a data recovery program at hand in case any data loss disaster happens. We highly recommend Deleted Data Recovery which is able to recover deleted, formatted data from hard drive, portable devices within a few clicks. Its Mac version - Deleted Data Recovery for Mac features similar functions.
The processes for recovering deleted data and recovering formatted data are a bit different. See the steps below:
Download and install the program on a separate partition from the formatted disk. Otherwise, the program will overwrite your lost data. (If you need to recover files from portable device, plug it into your PC.)
Step 4: Specify the path for the recovered files. Click "OK" to complete file recovery.
Download Deleted Data Recovery for Mac. Install it on another partition rather than the one where you deleted your data. Then
