Data Recovery after Reinstalling Mac

“I recently re-installed the OS on my Mac system in order to solve some issues. After successful reinstallation of OS, I found that I had lost many of the files from a Mac Volume. I didn’t even take the data backup. Now, I have lost my important files from Mac. Will I be able to get my lost data back? From the time I lost my data, I stopped using my computer. Can anyone suggest any solution please? Thank you”

Even if you are in the same or similar situation and lost your entire Mac data, then there is no need to worry! You can easily recover data after reinstalling Mac in just few mouse clicks with the help of Remo Recover software. The utility has been specifically designed to extract files from the hard drives that are reinstalled with Mac OS.

Situations in which Mac OS X need to be reinstalled

There is no one particular reason in which you might reinstall the Mac; some of the commonly encountered reasons are as listed below:

  • To get rid of the viruses on your Mac that couldn’t be removed even with powerful anti-virus software
  • Previously installed OS has crashed due to some unknown reasons
  • Need to upgrade Mac to the latest version
  • To increase the system performance
  • Mac file system is corrupt or damaged

Above listed are some of the reasons that lead you to reinstall your Mac OS. Actually, not all reinstalling procedures will erase your data. There are actually two ways of reinstalling your Mac, if you have opted for the wrong option then only your data will get erased. The two options for reinstalling are:

Archive and Install: If you make use of this option then, only the OS related files and other systems files will be erased but not your data and it will be kept safe.

Erase and install: If by chance you opt this option then your entire data including word documents, program files, pictures, excel sheets music files, OS related files etc. will be erased and then new OS will be installed.

How Remo Recover software works?

As most of you feel, reinstalling your OS will never remove your data from the hard drive. Even when you use the “Erase and Install” option, your data is not lost! Actually, reinstalling will just unlinks your files by erasing their pointers. Due to this unlinking, all your files become inaccessible, but will still be present on the drive unaffected, until and unless they are overwritten by new files.

In such instances, making use of this Remo Recover (Mac) will help you to get your entire data back even after you reinstall your Mac OS. Remo Recover performs complete system scan repeatedly that too sector-by-sector with the help of its advanced scanning algorithms to recover Mac files completley without any loss of presicion. While scanning your Volumes, it actually ignores the current file system (OS) and extracts the data from the previous OS. Thus, Remo Recover makes it possible to get back your data completely from the reinstalled Mac OS.  

Compatible OS versions: All Mac OS X versions like Mac Leopard, Snow Leopard, Mac Lion, Mac Mountain Lion and others
