Apple Mac data recovery is simple… provided you can get past three little obstacles known as disk formatting, disk verification, and disk zeroing. Disk formatting on Mac computers is just like that on Windows based PCs. The operating system places on the recordable media a file structure that serves as a grid for the OS to navigate the hard disk with and to plot the placement of files. If all that was required to recover deleted Mac files was to read past the formatting and scan for file extension data Mac recovery would be a snap. But… Mac file recovery entails more.
