We all know the woe of accidentally deleting a file and then trying to recover it. On the Mac, it is not an easy process. Read on to learn how to recover files on a Mac OS.
Things You'll Need
- Norton Utilities for the Mac
- Mac OS X
Launch Norton Utilities' Unerase application
Select the disk that the files were on.
Click on the "Quick Search" button.
When the scan is complete, select the files that you want to UnErase and then click "Recover."
Select a disk to recover to, preferably not the disk you are recovering from. Norton Unerase places the recovered files in a Recovered Files folder at this location.
Tips & Warnings
- Try searching in multiple directories to increase your chances of recovering the file.
- If the file was deleted some time ago, it's possible that Unerase will not be able to recover the file at all.
