Computers contain most of our most important personal information. Losing this data is for most people a devastating experience.
Items such as digital photos, videos, and music files are just a few examples of electronic artifacts that would cause at least some emotional distress if they were suddenly to disappear.
Their loss may result in users needing to recover deleted files on Mac. In some cases, there may be financial incentives to retain data, and their accidental deletion or loss can lead to unnecessary expenses in trying to recreate the lost files.
Many files like pictures, accounting data, manuscripts etc. cannot be recreated, meaning that the only solution will be to attempt to recover the data from the drive.
Often the data has become inaccessible because of the iMac or MacBook hardware failure of liquid or physical damage.
