Introduction

Accidentally deleting files – such as photos, videos, or other documents – is a typical situation occurring to most users, including the most experienced ones; additionally, most of the storage units that we’re used to rely upon – external hard drives, USB pendrives, SD cards, and so on – can become corrupted, defective or abruptly cease to work.

All these scenarios suggest an important precaution, which can help us to significantly increase the security of our archives: the utmost importance of having a reliable app that can help us to immediately recovery these missing files.

Do I really need a data recovery software?

As a matter of fact, you don’t: there are a lot of common data loss scenarios where you can recover all the  missing files without the need for a dedicated software. If you want to check what you can do before installing anything, we strongly suggest to check out this useful guide:

However, most of these methods rely upon some safety nets (trashcan, Time Machine backups, cloud-based solutions, and so on) that might be unavailable in your specific scenario: what if you have emptied the trash or have no backup of the deleted files? That’s the time when a data recovery software comes handy.
