Deletion of Mac folders

The Trash in Mac holds any deleted folders and files. When you delete folder or files from Mac using “Delete” then its reference is deleted from the allocation table and stored in Trash. But when you delete the folder from Trash or empty Mac Trash, the files will be permanently deleted from the machine. At times, users delete some important files from the Trash and later realize the need for it.

Upon clearing the folders from the Trash folder, most of the users assume that it is never possible to regain the file items wiped from the Mac Trash. Well, no, that's not right. It is still possible to restore Trash files after permanent deletion by implementing the right recovery techniques.

Trash files can be easily recovered

When the files are emptied from the trash, only their reference will be deleted from the hard disk but the data resides in the same storage space. The space of the deleted folder will be marked as free to save new file items. Therefore, until and unless this space is utilized(overwritten) by any new items, it is possible to extract the deleted files. Now, to securely recover lost folders and deleted folders from Mac trash all you need is the Folder Recovery application.
