It’s a “throw the computer at the wall” moment: you have been slogging away for hours on your work presentation files, or you have finally hit 10,000 words for your university presentation and, suddenly, the work seems to have disappeared in front of your eyes.

But do not panic! There is a way to recover the lost file(s). Do Your Data Recovery for Mac is one of the latest data recovery software options on the market, and can help any Mac user recover missing files. In addition, there are also a few tips on how to prevent losing data in the future that should be put in place.

It is extremely easy to use, with a clean and wizard-based interface, and unlike the Recuva Mac version, it is an all-round Mac data recovery tool, enabling users to get lost data back under a variety of situations.

Preventing this situation from happening in the future

Of course, just because there is reliable Mac data recovery software out there, that does not mean that you should be careless with your files, in your computer or other media. Here are two tips to help prevent losing files (and preventing those panic moments):

Empty your trash bin only once a month

If you are a “serial deleter”, you may feel compelled to empty the trash on a regular basis. However, there is no harm keeping your files in the Trash and having a set date each month when you check then empty it. This will mean you’re less likely to lose a precious file by emptying the Trash out of habit.

Use “Save as” functionality

It sounds obvious, but a lot of Mac users just use “Save” their files, rather than using the “Save As” functionality. Essentially, this functionality is like making a photocopy of your file, so it is always useful to keep your file safe on the hard drive, then any time you want to open the file or make a small change, save the new version as an updated version with a slightly different file name.
