Here are some of the top methods that you can use to recover deleted notes on your Macintosh computer:
Using your apple ID:With the help of your apple ID and Icloud you can set automatic backups for all of the notes that you create. To do this, you just need to go into the finder, applications, system preferences, Icloud and log into your Icloud account. You can set any of the notes that you create in the mac notes program to automatically upload to your Icloud account so that they can be easily recovered whenever they are deleted. This option is only available to those that have access to and Icloud account as well as an appleID. This is by far one of the easiest options for recovery however as notes in the apple ID system take up very little space and can be saved for a very long time in the Icloud account. This means that if you are looking for a note that you wrote years ago with the same apple ID on a different device, you should still be able to access it somewhere in the cloud.
Try the trash folder:Another easy method for data recovery on Mac is to check the track shortly after you have deleted an item. Your trash application will hold all of the items that you have recently deleted so that they can be easily recovered. If you have quickly deleted a note but not had a chance to empty your trash bin you should be able to easily recover these deleted notes before they are empty from your trash. Go to the dock, then trash and find the note or file that you would like to recover. You can drag the note right out of your trash folder into a folder where you can save it or into the cloud for backup. This is one of the easiest ways that you can recover files without an Apple ID if you have only just deleted them.
Using software methods:If you are trying to find notes and recover from a formatted external hard drive, you may be lost looking for them in your trash. Instead you may have to use recovery software to search through an external drive or through your Mac hard drive to find details on the note. Recovering part of a partial file is exactly what software can do. Even if you have deleted the file from your trash permanently or formatted the file, a partial version of it may still exist on your hard drive. With the help of data recovery software for Mac, you can scan for the name of the file or potentially even some sentences within the note. By using this recovery software you can work at eventually discovering the space where the note was lost and then having the program to decipher the file and recover it.
You may not get access to the entire note and the program may not be able to turn up anything on the note at all if it has been completely overwritten. The software approach however is one of the best chances that you have if you have completely deleted the note and it has been many months since you have required it.
