MacBook File Recovery: Get Back Deleted, Formatted & Trashed Files from Your Mac

1Common Situations That Cause MacBook Data Loss:

» Mistakenly deleted MacBook files & folders
» Accidentally emptied Mac trash
» Accidentally formatted MacBook partitions

If you have lost important files or folders due to any of the accidental operations above, you still can get them back; with the help of third-party mac data recovery software. To choose the right data recovery tool, be positive that it supports recovery of data deleted, formatted or emptied from Trash. If you're still looking for the right software, I humbly reccomend Wondershare's own data recovery for mac, which enables you to recover Mac files, no matter you lost them due to any situation above.

Download the free trial version of this fast and easy Mac file recovery software below.


Note: If you want to recover files found by the program later on, you'd better save the scan results, for safety's sake.

There is one thing that you shoud pay attention is that: Don't save the recovered files on the orginal place again. Find another partition or external disk to store them, for safety consideration.
