Time Machine offers a great approach to ensuring data on your Mac is preserved. As part of this process, backups are slowly removed to make room for new ones being added to the designated storage location. In some cases, a backup will be removed when it is still needed or one could become damaged unexpectedly. How do you get this information back? Is it gone forever? Can you recover deleted files from Time Machine? The answer to these questions is “yes” you can get it back and “no” it is not gone forever.
Recovering files from Time Machine requires diligence, especially when the backups are taken frequently. As older backup files are removed, they remain on the drive until a new backup file requires the space. If you act quickly, it is possible to regain the entire backup file or any needed information. Stellar Phoenix Macintosh Data Recovery is one option for locating a deleted backup and retrieving data.
The utility is able to locate any files that have been removed but not overwritten on the drive including those stored as part of backups. It is capable of scanning any local or external drive you have set up for the backup process. Mac Data Retrieval also provides a number of options to ensure a successful data retrieval.
