How to Recover Deleted Files from Mac without Software

I had a recovery tool on my old Windows, but yesterday, it ran into problems, so I decided to work on a Mac. When I finished all the processes needed, I decided to clean the Mac because it was running too slow. Today, I found no files available on this Mac. I thought I might have deleted them accidentally. Is there any workable way to recover them without software?

The first thing you should do after accidentally deleting your files is to check your Trash Bin Folder. If you find your files there, just right-click it and choose "Put Back". Suppose your Finder runs into a problem at the same time. You can use the Terminal command to perform the Trash Bin files recovery. You can also recover deleted files from Time Machine, but the premise is that you have checked the box of Back Up Automatically in System Preferences before. You can do it like this to recover deleted files from Mac without software:

  • Open the Finder window where the lost files are originally stored.
  • Launch Time Machine by clicking its icon. Or you can enable it in the System Preferences.
  • Utilize the arrows and timeline to view the local backups. If you find your lost files, select them and click "Restore".

As you can see, it is possible to recover deleted files with the built-in utility of Mac and without software. But if you want to recover permanently deleted files on Mac, you have to tend to some professional data recovery tool like EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro.

It can perform data recovery in a variety of different cases, like recovering unsaved Word documents on Mac. You can use a reliable tool if you try out the above method, but they all fail. You can recover your lost files with a few simple clicks, and even computer novices can finish the process without any technical help. Action speaks louder than words! Just download and try it now.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
