When we in one way or the other lost some important files on our Mac PC or other pc, there is probability of getting some even all of the files backthrough the process called file recovery. This article therefore treats concisely the step by step procedure to follow when our Mac PC or other PC falls a victim of this calamity, these include:
The first on the list is: estimate how big or heavy the issues is that is, find out how much files or documents you are about losing. If you realize you have just deleted or got one or two files that are less important missing you may still pull yourself together and bother less but if the case is otherwise like not being able to access some crucial document you saved on your PC long ago or an important PDF file that contain versatile information about something, then you should know there is fire on the mountain and see the need to act fast. Closely following these steps, smiling and joy could come around being the order of the day for you as you may get them all restored, hopefully.
Secondly: having realized the need to work fast, this step should be the next thing on your what-to-do list. Quickly stop using the HDD or SDD of that PC with immediate effect. Stop whatever you may be doing and concentrate fully on recovering the files or documents, your adherence to that could earn you spending less effort and time on the recovering. Stopping or pending what you are currently doing at that moment don’t really mean you should shut down the system, NO! You just have to stop all other activities on the PC so that it won’t interrupt and cause you to lose the files forever.
Thirdly: after pending and focusing on the way out, downloading a data recovery program should be the immediate thing to do. Now, you will have to get a separate disk to download the program or software don’t you ever use the disk the you are recovering files from, doing that could make the situation fatal because when downloading you are as well writing on the disk, especially when the data recovery program is such that is very big in size. Actually, there are some of this programs that are small in size. You should get the one you fully understand how to handle having familiarized yourself with the ideology of the software.
Fourth step: having downloaded the recovery program transfer it to the disk you recovering, launch the program or software and prepare a second disk, USB drive or key, or SD card ready to recover the files, possibly you could use the disk you used to download the program that is if you are very sure it will contain all the documents you recovering. The best software for Mac recovery is uFlysoft data recovery.
While the software is running it is often best to allow the program run completely, before selecting the folders of the files you want back (select multiple folders by holding down the command key), click ‘Recover’ to recover the entire folders selected.
NOTE: Allowing the uFlysoft to scan completely and thoroguly is preferable because some might be amaze with the efficiency of the software, seeing their lost files already and some other deleted files they never thought they could ever come across and just decide to stop the program while scanning, just because they realize they’ve seen what they needed. Doing this could cause you to go over again from the beginning and if care is not taking, impatience could make you lose them forever because interrupting the running could make the program not to work efficiently.
In case the document you recovering is a ‘txt’ file then check the folder known as ‘RAW TEXT PLAIN’ as it contains all document in txt format on the whole mac. You can do this by selecting the whole folder and recover all it contains then come back and search for the exact file or document you’re recovering inside the folder.
Total adherence to the following steps will set your face into a smiling-mode as you will recover all you’ve lost without anyone left behind.
