How to Recover Files on Your Mac

How to Recover Files on Your Mac
There is nothing like the panic you can feel if you accidentally lost a file on your Mac, but we’ve got some steps that can help you recover those files and calm that anxiety.

3 Ways to Recover Files on Your Mac

There are three possible ways to find and recover those files on your Mac that you thought you trashed forever.

Get the File From the Trash – If you dump a file and then realize that you actually need it, the first place to look is the Trash. Go to your desktop and open the Trash icon. If you find your item in the Trash, right click on the file name and select Put Back. If the original file location is no longer available, just drag the item out of the Trash and place it on your desktop. From there you can save it to a new location.

Get the File with Time Machine – If you have been making regular backups with Time Machine, go to the Time Machine menu bar and select Enter Time Machine. From there you can use the arrows to toggle between snapshots, use the Timeline to go to a specific backup, or use the Search bar to find your file. When you find your file, double click on it and then click Restore.

Use File Recovery Software – If you haven’t been making backups, all is not lost. There are many file recovery apps – even free ones – to help you recover your files. The most important thing to do is stop using your Mac for any extra activities, and then download a recovery app.

Losing a file, whether it is an important inventory list for work or your family Christmas letter, can be a frustrating feeling. Before you let panic takeover, try one of these three ways to recover lost files on your Mac – because in the digital age all is usually not truly lost.
