Macintosh or Mac operating system designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. There are a series of operating systems such as Sierra, El Capitan, Yosemite, Mavericks, Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, etc. They support file systems like HFS, HFSX and others for storing and manipulating data in an organized manner. All the data is stored on the hard disk of the Mac OS X. The hard disk is a critical part of storing digital data. You can store a huge amount of valuable data and different applications on your hard disk. For a proper utilization of your hard disk space, it is being segmented into several logical drives known as partitions or volumes in Mac.
Hard drive stores data on an electromagnetic disk. The hard disks are partitioned to efficiently organize the critical system files and the user data. Partitioning improves the system performance and speed. Many users partition their drives to install different operating systems on each volume or partition. The Mac OS X operating system permits you to make logical division either to HFS+ or HFSX partitions. If your boot volume gets corrupt then the disk partition prevents data loss as it loses data from the boot partition without affecting your data present in the user partition. A common problem in the hard disk is volume getting corrupt due to various reasons resulting in a huge loss of data. To overcome the loss you can make use of some efficient Mac partition recovery software to perform a damaged partition recovery.
Data loss situation arises in hard drive due to unintentionally deleting the partition, while removing the unwanted volume or partition if you select the wrong one then there is a huge data loss. If your file system is corrupted by being infected by some harmful virus or if the system files are missing then in this case also you lose all your data present on the hard drive. If some third-party application corrupts the volume header, which stores all the details of the volume like creation date and time, size of the volume, the location of volume structures like the Catalog File or Extent Overflow File, etc. then the volume become inaccessible and there is a huge loss of data. If the Apple Partition Map gets corrupt by some harmful virus then also all the data is deleted and lost.
These are some of the prominent reasons, which cause a huge loss of data. In case to avoid data loss you need to take precaution in backing up files present on the hard drive. If you fail to have a backup then you need to make use of the appropriate Mac partition recovery software that can recover data from lost partitions, for more read more on this website. This tool is been designed with a specialized program, which can even restore deleted or lost volumes on Mac. With this application, you can recover lost files from a Mac partition even after time machine crashes, format and reformat. It has some divergent features in recovering data from Mac OS X. Recovers files that were deleted from HFS+, HFSX, FAT16 and FAT32 partitions or volumes. It restores files from formatted and re-formatted partitions or volumes. This software will support the recovery of files from the formatted hard drives of different types such as SATA, SCSI, IDE, etc. for more about this http://www.macpartitionrecovery.com/formatted-drive.html. It also helps to restore USB drives, memory sticks, FireWire drives, etc. You can play with the free demo version of the software and check its ability to recover deleted data. You can also preview the recovered result that will help you to decide whether the software is reliable and efficient in recovering. If you are satisfied with the previewed result then you can save the result by purchasing the software. With this application, you can also restore an accidentally formatted the partition on Mac Mini, MacBook Air, iMac and other Macintosh machines. This tool is also effective in recovery of data from the RAW volume, have a click on this link you will get detailed information about it: http://www.macpartitionrecovery.com/data-from-raw-volume.html
Steps to perform damaged partition recovery:
1: Install the Mac Partition Recovery tool, the main screen appears as shown in Figure 1. Select the "Recover Volumes/Drives" option from the main menu and then click on "Volumes Recovery".
Figure 1: Main Window
2: List of detected hard drives will appear as shown in Figure 2. Select the damaged partition from which you have to recover the lost files and click on the "Next" button.
