How to recover data on a Mac with EaseUS Mac Data Recovery
Download and install the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac from the link provided above. Once you have it installed, launch the app and you should see a screen similar to the one below. This nifty tool makes Mac data recovery, which could’ve been a long complex process, a simple three-step process.
All you have to do is click on the Scan button. Before you do that though you should make sure you’ve selected the drive that you want to recover data from because it can’t read your mind. This mac data recovery tool also lets you select a specific folder to recover data from if you know exactly where your lost data was stored. This makes scanning for deleted files a lot easier and faster.
When you click Scan, you can see a progress bar which shows you how much of the drive or folder has been scanned, and how much of it is yet to be scanned. Along with that it also shows you an estimated amount of time required to complete the scan and also gives you the options to pause or stop the scan. Stopping the scan halfway through can be useful if you’ve already found the files you were looking for. A list of all the deleted files is displayed as and how the files get detected. You can select multiple files from multiple folders one they’ve been discovered.
When you’re done selecting the files that you want to recover, you can click on the Recover button. The Recover button is only clickable after the scanning has been completed or manually stopped by the user. When you click recover, EaseUS will ask you to specify a location. This is where you want the recovered files to be stored. It will then place all the recovered files in the folders they were deleted from and place those folders inside a single EaseUS folder so that it can be easily recognized. The recovery process can also take as long as or longer than the scanning process depending on the number, type, and size of the files to be recovered.
EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is quite efficient when it comes to data recovery. Although some files just cannot be recovered. This is due to the way hard disks and other storage mediums work. When you delete a file, new data can be written on top of the deleted file. So as long as you deleted the file recently and haven’t moved around a lot of data in the drive, you should be able to recover the desired files.
