Mac audio file recovery: How to recover lost audio file on Mac?

Posted by Juno to Mac Data Recovery Tips on September 12th, 2017

I had a folder on my Desktop called "Audios" and for some reason it suddenly disappeared. I may have accidentally deleted it but I am not quite certain. It used to be there until a couple of days ago. It has lots of music I love and some other audios that are useful for my study. All those audio files mean a lot for me and I don't want to lose them. Is it possible to recover lost audio file on Mac? Do you know any Mac audio file recovery software?

Audio plays an important part in our daily life. The most common form of audio is music, which can colorize our life with wonders and joys, give us easiness and peace. Besides that, some users prefer to record information in voice, transfer and listen to audios. The same as other types of files, audio is also easy to get lost. Here are some common reasons that cause loss of audio files:

  • Intentional or unintentional deletion of audio files
  • Audio files lost during the process of transferring
  • The drive that contains audio files was damaged or became inaccessible
  • Audio files are all gone after the storage device was formatted
  • Virus attack or some unknown reasons

When our audio files are deleted or lost, we can't access or play them as before. Some users may think that's the end of the road and give up finding methods to solve this problem. But actually, we can recover lost audio file on Mac.

Tips for Mac audio file recovery

After losing audio files, we should stop using the storage device at which we lost files, avoid formatting it, saving new files on it or making any other further operation on it.

That's because those further operations may write new data to the drive and make the original audio files been overwritten. It's impossible to recover lost audio files once they have been overwritten.
