Recovering lost files from emptied trash.

I threw a documents file in the trash, thinking I'd duplicated it, and then emptied the trash.

I've lost the whole thing.

Can anyone advise me how to go about recovering the lost file?

If you want to try data recovery apps for free then you have plenty of options available for Mac. Go for Stellar file repair http://www.stellarinfo.com/mac-osx-recov..., try disk drill for Mac http://www.cleverfiles.com and Softtote Mac recovery http://www.softtote.com . Trying more than 1 tool will help you evaluate & compare the recovery performances. Go for the one which gives back maximum recovery figures.

Get back to me for more info.

Even if you have emptied the trash then also you can recover your data. Remember permanent deletion of data takes place only when the data is overwritten by something else. So, you need not to worry just use a data recovery software you will be able to recover the data easily.

Accidental deletion of files from trash is common but to know how to get back deleted files is not restricted to only technical experts. I read an article that help me to get back files emptied from trash bin and trust me the solution is much easier.

I used Remo Recover (Mac) to recover all of the files that where lost due to usage of Empty Trash folder option.. Hope it helps you too.

The best solution has lost the page. There are still some ways to try before using the data recovery tool. For example, use the Mac-specific Time Machine feature:

1. Start "Time Machine" > select a way to transfer files and continue.

2. Select "Backup" to confirm the action and continue.

3. Carefully confirm the time and date of the backup and select the appropriate backup.

4. Select the file you want to restore and click “Continue” to start the transfer process.

After the transfer process is over, check if your file has been restored. If it hasn't been recovered, don't hesitate to choose a reliable data recovery tool to recover lost files from emptied trash as soon as possible.
