Why The Lost Files Can Be Recovered

When you deleted files from your Mac hard drive (or other storage device,) even like we discuss in this article-empty Mac trash bin, it seems that all the files are gone and you cannot find them anywhere. Actually, what the operating system only does is going to delete the catalog and free up the space of the files so that there is enough space for you to store new files into your hard drive later. At this moment, you still have chance to recover these files no matter you format your hard drive or delete files from your hard drive.

But one thing you need to pay attention to is that if you put any new files into your hard drive, these new files will occupy the space of the “deleted files”-this is the so-called data overwritten situation. Once this happens, you will lose the chance to recover the files.
