Mac Trash Recovery
Create trash Mac OS X
The trash folder in the Mac OS X is the folder where all the deleted files from the Mac are stored temporarily as long as the files are not manually deleted. Therefore, in case you delete a file intentionally or accidentally and then, want to recover it back you can you can locate the file in the trash. However, there are also chances that the trash folder does not exist at all. In such a case one needs to create trash Mac.
The trash folder may be missing in case of any locally mounted drive which does not allow the user to restore any files that are deleted accidentally or intentionally. Therefore, it is essential to create trash Mac OS X. This can be done easily with the steps mentioned below:
Type the following commands on the terminal:
sudo mkdir /.Trashes
After this set the permission and ownership with the commands mentioned below:
sudo chown `id -un` ~/.Trash
chmod u+rwx ~/.Trash
sudo chown root /.Trashes
sudo chmod u=wx,g=wx,o=w /.Trashes
After performing the aforementioned steps the user is able to create trash Mac OS X which is created on the desktop. This folder would now store all the files that are deleted from the Mac OS X. From here you can restore any files that you had earlier deleted. But if the files are deleted from the trash itself then, it can never be recovered back manually.
You have to use an efficient and reliable third party softwrae such as the Mac trash recovery software that can recover all the files that have been deleted from the trash bin as well. The software works on the simple principle that even if the files are deleted from the trash the meta data information is still present on the hard drive until new files that are created overwrite it. Therefore, once you delete an important file- the first thing that you need to do is to stop using the system and then try to recover the deleted file with the help of this software.
