However, many people save their data such as importantbusiness or customers’ documents, private photos, email files andentertainment files like movies and songs on the hard drive. Does thissound like you? Of course, I am one member of them. All of my files havebeen stored on my Mac hard drive, while there is only one partition ofmy hard drive. I have to say, I am layman of Mac. So less is more. Idon’t have extra time to learn how to create hard disk partition. Then,the problem arises. How do you deal with your Mac hardware meltdown? Doyou know how to rescue your data when Mac dead? If you have a good habitto backup your data periodically, then, congratulate to you, your losscould be minimized; if not, just like me, it’s a bad egg, all of mydocuments including my kids’ pictures were gone to heaven without backuptimely. Here are my questions when this terrible case happened.

1. Is it possible to recover lost data when Mac hard drive crashes?

2. All or part of my lost files on Mac could be rescued, if some data recovery software could help me?

3. For some kinds of professional data recovery tool, arethey hard to handle? As layman of technology, I don't want to buyhard-to-operate software, I don’t want to waste my time to be familiarwith this hell user manual and confused buttons.

With these questions, I took my Macbook to professional Macdata recovery center to ask for help. It cost my 300 bulks on repairinghard drive and recover lost data from Mac.Finally, one staff told me, there is a simple method for you to rescuelost data on Mac by yourself, on condition that your hard drive could bereboot successfully. He said you could buy Macintosh data recovery toolonline to do this recovery task. But, you need to choose easy-to-usetool, when I let him give me some suggestions on which brand orproviders would be available, guess what’s answer?

"Um, it’s up to you!"

"What a perfect answers, thank you!"

Tip to Choose Data Recovery Tool

Since it is so, I came home and searched “mac data recovery”keywords on google, there are more than 60 million related resultsdisplayed. No wonder that guy was unable to give me an exact answer.Well, there are so many software, which one is suit me, and which onecould help me fix my problem once data lost again later on?

Finally, I accessed to toptenreviews website to get some professional reviews to get some useful tips tochoose data recovery software. Where toptenreviews page listed top tendata recovery software for users to review, including Mac version andWindows. Seemed powerful software vendors, I extracted some of thembelow.

Macintosh Data recovery

1. Stellar Phoenix

2. EaseUS

3. uMacsoft

4. Disk Doctors

Now, it’s up to you to choose which one to purchase. Mychoice is uMacsoft, which is professional Macintosh data recoverysoftware, I don’t find out its Windows version, maybe this vendorspecializes in Mac software development. The other vendors like StellarPhoenix, who provides both Mac and Windows version. So you can choose itif you have PC.

My reasons to choose suitable recovery application amongthose 60 millions results are as followed. It’s just for your reference.Quoted those staff’s words: it’s up to you!

Tip one. Free version – the website providestrail version for you before you buy it. This feature could help youdecide if this software could fix your problem successful. Generally,there are no big differences between trail version and full version.Some free versions allow you to use 30 days; some could only scan yourlost data, if you want to recover them, you need to pay for the fullone.

Tip two. Easy-to-use – the software must beeasy to handle, I don’t like the one that designed only for technologyexperts. I like the software whose interface is simple enough, no matterhow cool your interface is, less buttons would be better, likeuMacsoft, there are only two buttons: Scan and Recovery. You are able toknow their roles straightforward.

Tip three. Scan and Recovery – these twofeatures determine the value of this recovery tool. That’s why I suggestyou download the trail version to see if it’s powerful enough toretrieve your data.

Please keep the above tips on your computer; it’s necessary for you to save time and money when choosing software.

Easiest Way to Rescue Lost Data on Mac

Generally, almost all the recovery tools have the same workflow, which is “detect device – scan data – recover data”.

First of all, you need to download and launch data recovery tool on Mac OS.

Detect device. When you launch softwaresuccessfully, there will be a hard drive image displayed on theinterface; you just need to click it to be scanned automatically byprogram.

Scan data. When clicking hard drive or anyother devices that you want to recover lost files, the software startsto scan it for the loss, this is robot process, and you don’t need to bebabysister.

Recovery data. When finishing scanning, yourlost files would be listed on the interface; you are allowed to checkthem to preview, and get them back by clicking “Recovery” button or someother names like this.

Finally, you need to keep in mind that once your data lost,do nothing on this computer, that’s because the overwritten data can notbe recovered successfully, no matter how expensive and powerfulrecovery software is.
