Have you ever dragged some important files to Mac Lion Trash bin and then right clicked the Empty Trash option by accident, but later found you have made a huge mistake and wondering if there is a way to recover erased files? As you know for us Mac users, Trash Bin is not strange to us. We use it nearly every day. And we also know that the items we sent to Trash Bin are still recoverable. What we need to do is just to click 'pull back'. But how about you accidentally emptied Mac Lion Trash and is it possible to recover lost data?
Common belief thinks the answer is yes and will just stay panic about their fault. But the real answer is - You CAN restore those trashed files right from your Mac Lion machine.
The fact is - there are so many similar characters between Apple Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and Microsoft Windows operation systems. As we know wiping Mac trash is just like emptying Windows recycle bin, and Command Delete under OS X is equal to Shift Del under Windows. But both methods won't erase deleted files permanently, at least for quite a moment. When you carelessly made similar commands, ONLY deleted files are marked as "deleted" (state) by the index of file system (HFS+ with Mac OS X Lion) but the real data are still kept 100% intact right on the hard drive of your Macintosh.
However if you keep using your computer, those "deleted" data will one day be overwritten by the new generated by human activity (such as store new sizable files to that partition or install new applications etc). Once overwritten, those emptied files are then now deleted for good. But usually it will take quite a time, sometimes months or years to reach that overwritten state if the storage volume of Mac hard drive is large. In a word as long as the real data not fully covered, chances are there to undelete trashed files Mac Lion.
The first thing should do - Immediately stop saving or adding new files to your Macintosh HD once you have wiped Lion Trash Bin.
