    I was devastated when my .txt and .docx files were accidentally deleted from my Mac HD. After doing some research for recovery methods, I selected this. I am so happy that I did…all of my files were recovered! Though some of them were a bit grainy, and a small percentage had a part of the file missing, I am thrilled that I was able to get any of them back. Thank you!

    I don’t think I still can get my lost files back because my Mac hard drive got something wrong and I have to take it to repair. It can be used after fixing, but all the files cannot be found anymore. Lots of the important files are still needed. But thanks one of my friend tell me to come here to have a try on the solution. And it doesn’t make me disappointed, most of the files are back to be again. And I also learn some technical skills in this post. Thank you so much!
