Are your files lost forever and there is no hope of return? Mac users have a variety of options to recover, and there are also several third party applications that can use and give results or use similar services. Visit Disk Drill homepage at for more information.


1. Use Time Machine. All Apple computers come loaded with the latest OS: Leopard. Time Machine is part of Leopard, and is a program that will recover your files easily. Just open the application and travels back to the point where you want to access your file; then click on "Restore" and automatically be placed in the folder where it was before it was removed or deleted.

2. Use Backup if you are a member of Mac, with which you can back up your files on a hard disk, CD or DVD or iDisk. Select a backup plan in the process window, select the files you want to recover and click “restore”. You have the option of backing up the system, which lets you recover all the files on the back or just the ones you selected.

3. Use FileSalvage or Data Backup 3, allowing you to backup restore and synchronize your information easily. Open the application and select the settings to your preference, you will return later to the point where your files and directories are located. Plan your backups through the program and also adds additional options as a backup to a hard drive to protect your files. 

Tips and Warnings

While some programs can search your computer extensively in the files you want to restore, does not guarantee that the file can be recovered without proper backup. Is it safe to have a completely separate hard drive you use to back up your files? This will make it easy to recover your files later, and not have to worry about if there is hope to recover your files again.
