From writer, video editors, photo editors and other content creators to the everyday user, the Mac is the ideal system that we rely on to get work done. But what happens when all that work gets accidentally deleted. Hours of work and sometimes irreplaceable content is gone without a trace. This can be a worst-case scenario when no backup is in sight and recreating the deleted content is not a practical option.

But this is not the end of the road if you have the EaseUS Data Recovery software for mac. It can turn an otherwise tragic situation into a near miss with a few easy steps which we will go over in this how-to guide.

So what do you do when you accidentally delete files you have no backup too.

Step 1:

Download the EaseUS Data Recovery software for Mac OS. We can’t recover anything without our recovery tool so go ahead and download it to your system. It comes in 3 variations, the Free, Pro and technical Variation. IF you will be recovering above 2GB of data then you will be needing the Pro version which also comes with Free Lifetime technical support, or if you have something a lot more complicated to restore and wish to have a professional take a look at for you, then the Technical edition is your best bet.

We will be focusing on the free version for this tutorial but the process is the same as the Pro. Once you have downloaded the file you can install it on your mac and you are good to go.

Step 2:

Locate where you would like EaseUS Data Recovery to scan for your deleted files. This can be on your drive, USB stick, Time Machine or on a separate partition. Once this is selected, the application will start scanning the drive/folder and display all the results it finds. You can pause the process or even stop it half way if it finds your files quickly, but you might want to take a break if the drive you are scanning is very large and come back in a little bit to check on the progress.

Step 3:

So after scanning you will most likely find your files and unless it has been overwritten or corrupted beyond recognition. But if you are running this process shortly after the files were accidentally deleted then you should see your files in the scan window.

Congrats crisis averted. Your files can now be safely restored. You should place them in a different location unless you don’t need to restore any more files and Ease will give you a warning to this effect. You even get the option of saving the files to the cloud.

And that’s it. You are done and are greeted with one final screen letting you know that the task is done.

Three simple steps, you are able to easily and quickly restore accidentally deleted files on your mac with no stress or hassle. The only thing that’s left to do at this point is to invest in a good backup solution.
