How to Undelete Data on Mac OS X

To learn how to undelete data on Mac OS X, you'd better know what deleting a file means first. When you removing a file, the OS just erase the entry instead of the content of this file. It means space now is free and available for new data. That's why usually you can not find your file after deletion.

In this case, if you find you deleted some important files you want by mistake, you can take measures to get them back.

First, don't write anything new data to the hard drive or device where the lost item exists. Ideally don't use the disk or device at all. Next, you can consider using a professional Mac data recovery software which is available for Mac OS X to retrieve the deleted data.
