How to Restore Recently Deleted Mac Files

Deleting files on Mac is not a new phenomenon. It is done on a daily basis. But you can still restore recently deleted files on Mac provided you take the required actions immediately. If you happen to delete files by a simple “Delete” option, it is suggested to stop further addition or deletion of files from Mac so that you can recover recently deleted files from Mac Trash. To do this, just double click on Trash icon, then navigate to files you are looking for, right click and select Put Back option. Alternatively, you can also simple drag and drop the files to the location where you want to.

But one drawback with Mac Trash folder is its storage limit. If the size of deleted files crosses the size limit of Trash, then the files get bypassed from Trash and you can’t attempt to restore recently deleted files on Mac. Suppose you have emptied the Trash folder immediately after deleting files on Mac, even then file recovery after emptying Trash is difficult.
