What to do in case of data loss on Mac?
What user has never experienced data loss? Regardless of the device and its operating system, unfortunately, you can experience a handling error, malicious intent, hardware failure, or even just a power outage or overvoltage that can result in the device disappearing or breaking. one or more files on its hard disk or other storage medium. Memories of hours or years of work can slip away in an instant and haunt us when this happens.
