Trash Mavericks Recovery: Recover Data from Trash in Mavericks

Almost all of computer users must have encountered this: accidentally deleted a photo or a document when you wanted to drag it or send it to somewhere else. That's kind of misoperation happens almost every hour. What you do when you're unfortunately suffering it? Cry for the loss of the photo, or begin to recreate a new document? Actually, that's not the right thing to do in the first time. Then what is it? Read on.

The first thing: Check Trash on your Mavericks computer

Usually, if you didn't delete things with Command + Delete, the deleted files will be recycled into the Trash on your Mac. So the first thing you need to do is checking the Trash. If you find the file there, just drag it to the desktop directly. Then your deleted file is back. What if the file is not there? Because you emptied the Trash or just deleted it by Command + Delete? Move forward to the next things you can do.

The second thing: Keep your computer original

In this case, you can't simply find the deleted file from the Trash. What you need to do is keeping your computer original. That's to say, don't create new data on your Mac or add new data to it. Why? Deleted files are not gone immediately. They just become invisible and the space that they occupied is marked as being available for reuse by the system. Therefore, when you put new data on your computer, it may take the reusable space and overwrite the deleted files. Once overwritten, the deleted files can't be recovered in any way. In order to get a better chance of recovering your data, you need to pay attention to this. Then, it's the time to find a way to perform a Mavericks trash recovery now.
