Common scenarios in which data can get deleted / lost from partitions on Mac OS X

Volume is accidentally formatted / re-formatted – There are times when you need to re-install the operating system and in such a situation it is essential to re-format the existing Mac hard disk volumes leads to heavy data loss. Formatting a wrong partition or formatting it unintentionally also leads to loss of data.

Deleted partitions after re-partitioning the hard drive – When you re-partition a hard drive either by re-sizing, adding or deleting a partition there are chances that you might accidentally delete a volume or end up losing data due to some other partitioning errors 

Catalog record corruption – The catalog file maintains details regarding the various files and their respective location on the volumes. Corruption of the Catalog record makes these files inaccessible.

Volume header corruption – Corruption in the volume header makes the volume inaccessible or volume won't mount, resulting in loss of data

Failed Master Boot Record – Failure of the Master Boot Record will lead to hard drive crash, denying access to all the volumes present on the hard drive.
