Data loss in Mac due to Disk Utility error

The Disk Utility performs all the disk related activities on a Mac machine. It is used for mounting a hard drive, checking the status of the hard drive, checking the hard drive for different type of errors etc. A major use of Disk Utility however, is that it can be used for creating a disk image, and later performing compression of the disk images.

It is not necessary, that this utility performs without any errors. There are times when Disk Utility itself faces some errors, resulting in loss of data. The error in Disk Utility usually arises when we try to fix hard drive permissions. Disk Utility faces an internal error, and fails to synchronize with the Disk Management Tool. Due to this, the fixing process stops, and there is no further correction that takes place. This error is primarily due to a particular type of file, called the Chess file. When the Disk Management tool encounters a Chess file, it loses connection with Disk Utility resulting in this error.

There are many methods of solving this problem, like deleting the chess file, formatting the whole drive, or re-install the operating system. But these methods do not assure of complete data recovery. It is therefore essential to get hold of a good Mac recovery software. REMO Recover (Mac) Pro Edition software lets you recover Mac data lost or deleted from both HFS+ and HFSX volumes. This Mac data recovery software also lets you recover lost media files from various storage media.

Mac OS X data recovery Software

Mac OS X not only powerful, but is also very easy to use. Simplicity has been maintained, while designing not only the desktop, but all the other applications on your Mac machine. So everything, right from chatting to browsing, from emailing to downloading is made easy and fun to perform.

Of course,these things do not come easy. There are various complicated software involved in making all these things simpler for the user. The rock solid UNIX foundation, that has been time tested, is responsible for providing these extraordinary features in Mac. Despite these advanced features, Mac OS does face data loss situations similar to that of Windows, and hence Mac recovery software is an unavoidable component.

In most of the cases you might end up losing the HFS+ and HFSX volumes present on your Mac machines, resulting in loss of valuable data. But there is nothing to worry, as performing Mac recovery using a good data recovery software, will let you recover all the lost/deleted volumes. REMO Recover (Mac) Pro Edition software lets you do just that. The software is specially designed for Mac users, and has advanced features that let you preview the files before saving them, and also lets you save scan information of a particular scan session.

Recovery of photos from a Mac machine

Photos are very precious items, which we cherish throughout our lives. This is because, the photos would have captured a special moment, or a funny incident which we might never have the opportunity to see again. Such photos are usually very close to our heart, and losing them would bring about great sadness. But all is not gone, and we can still get back what we lost or deleted, by taking certain quick but careful steps.

Mac does offer an in-built tool for preventing data loss known as Time Machine, but this is just a quick backup tool, and not a recovery tool. In cases, where the necessary backup has not been taken, or the backup file is not updated, critical situations may arise, leading to permanent loss of data.

The first thing to do, is to stay calm, and avoid trying any “Do it yourself” methods, as this may lead to more disastrous consequences. The next precaution that you must take, is to make sure, that you stop using the camera, remove the flash memory card from it, seal it, and store it separately. Now, get yourself a good photo recovery software, that lets you recover digital photos.

Download and install REMO Recover (Mac) Media Edition software on another healthy machine, and connect the affected drive as a slave to this machine. Recover digital photos from the affected drive using this healthy machine.

Getting through Mac disk verification to recover files

The next obstacle to recover Mac files is disk verification. When Mac computer hard drives are set up the entire drive is scanned for errors. If any segments show non written data then basically an error message s presented and access to the rive is denied. This creates an interesting dilemma for if the your objective is to recover Mac files stashed away on the drive that have become damaged or corrupted, and disk verification blocks access to the area. How then can you get to the files?

This brings us to a digression to the solution stage of our article. In order to bypass the errors and subsequent blockage caused by disk verification we need a powerful Mac data recovery tool. We need Mac recovery software designed to either repair the damaged block as identified by disk verification or to leapfrog that process and reach the missing files. The recommended software for this purpose is REMO Mac Data Recovery Software.

The last hurdle in recovering files from Macs

The final obstacle in the way of an effective procedure to recover Mac files is Disk Zeroing. Disk zeroing is a further stage of hard drive formatting the deeply defines the inner file structure of Mac computer hard drives. Ever wonder why Mac computers don’t crash? …Disk zeroing. When one needs to find lost Mac files the process can be either almost impossible or basically easy. The choice of difficulty is totally dependent on which tool you attempt to use for Mac recovery. If you try to recover Mac data with a simple Linux based tool you will most likely fail as while it can read files in general on a Mac hard drive, it will not be ably to read a corrupted block hidden behind a disk verification error or damaged disk zeroing. You need the right tool for the job and that is only REMO Mac data recovery software. The instructions replete with the program will assist you in first determining the nature and the severity of your issue. Then, you will be guided as to whether to download the recovery program to the computer missing the files or to a separate ‘technician” PC. Once downloaded you need only follow the simple step-by-step instructions in the wizard type interface.
