Do you use a Western Digital (WD) hard drive or other external storage product from this provider? A recent reformat, file removal, or other complication is not as big of a catastrophe as most individuals would initially think. Every hard drive has what is called ‘physical storage space’ that is accessed via a logical address table. Why is this important? This information makes it easy to understand what exactly happens when files say goodbye on a hard drive and how to go about file retrieval on a WD drive. What actually happens is that the operating system uses the address any time you open or search for a file on the drive. When something is removed, whether on accident or purpose, it remains on the physical space but it cannot be located by the computer’s operating system. So if a file is deleted or you experience a loss due to reformatting or some other issue, nothing is actually gone
until some other action results in that file being overwritten.
If you use a Western Digital product for external storage, it is not a difficult process to restore data files. Discussed in this video tutorial is a Mac recovery utility for retrieval of lost, deleted or formatted over files from any Mac computer or in this case, an external device which is Western Digital. To perform Western Digital data recovery on a Mac hard drive, just follow the tutorial guide
