How to recover deleted/lost files from emptied Mac Trash?

Posted by Katrina to Mac Data Recovery on March 26th, 2018

It is a common fact that we mistakenly deleted files to hurriedly free up disk space and later realized we still need some of them. This is why Mac Trash exists. Mac Trash is designed to stores such deleted files for some time and allows us to restore them if needed. But if we have emptied Mac Trash unfortunately, there is no way to recover them except with the help of professional Mac Trash data recovery software.

Are deleted files emptied from Mac Trash still recoverable?

Well, it depends on whether deleted files are overwritten or not.

When we emptied Mac Trash, deleted files still stored on our Mac. The space that file originally takes is marked as vacant that we are unable to access these deleted files. Thus, deleted files physically keep intact until they are overwritten by new files. To prevent overwriting new data, we should stop using the Mac computer and recover data with professional Mac Trash data recovery software, like iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery.
