Mutual Mac

Is it possible to recover my screenies??!

It's possible so long as you haven't done too much writing to your drive since "deleting" a file doesn't actually delete it but merely removes the markers saying "There's a file here!". In practical terms, that means that so long as you don't do anything that would make the computer decide to write a different file where the "deleted" file is, that old file is still there and merely invisible.

However, the longer you use the computer, the more likely it is that you'll have a cache file or something overwrite the deleted file, so the quicker you catch it the better your chances of recovering the file.

Normally I'd say "Use Recuva", but that's a Windows-only program. Macs are a little different and all I could really find quickly for Mac was this - .


Do not assume that you speak for all just because you are the loudest voice; there are many who disagree that simply have no desire to waste words on you.
