Default Restore Trash on Mac

Emptying the trash on your Mac only to find out something was deleted that shouldn’t have been can seem like a devastating event. However, the files residing in trash may be restored if right actions are taken immediately. When trash is deleted on a Mac, the operating system only removes the location of those files from the address table. The data still resides on the hard drive and sits idly waiting to be overwritten.

If you quickly take the necessary action to perform recovery, these items are easily recoverable. You can make use of a retrieval utility. This type of recovery program may be used to locate specified or all deleted files on the hard drive. It scans the volume where the files reside and is able to restore the entire volume, selected folders, certain file types, or individual files. The sooner you use this program to recover your trash, the less the danger of overwritten data.

By only completing a few basic steps with the Mac Data Recovery utility, restoring trash on a Mac even if the folder is emptied is a snap:
  1. Select the volume to be scanned.
  2. Choose a method for retrieval.
  3. Complete the scan.
  4. Locate and select the trash items to be restored.
  5. Recover the files.

1. Choose Lost File Recovery mode

No matter data are deleted by "Command + Delete" or emptied from the Trash, "Lost File Recovery" can undelete files from a partition or removable media. This recovery option is priority, for it takes you only a few minutes to retrieve deleted files from Mac Trash.

If you can't get deleted file in this mode, you can try "Raw Recovery" later, which can recover piles of files including those lost long time ago, more time consumed accordingly.

2. Scan the location of Trash in Mac

Select the logical drive where you deleted your files, if you have more than one drives on your Mac. Then click on "Scan" to search your deleted files.

3. Preview and recover files from Mac Trash

When finishing the scan, all files you deleted are listed with the original path, no matter you deleted them directly from Library, desktop, or Trash, etc. Undoubtedly, files you emptied from Trash are in the "Trash" folder. Or you can search the file's name in the search bar on the top to retrieve it fast.

Before final recovery, you can preview the file to make sure the files or quantity. Common image formats, documents and archives are allowed to preview directly.

4. Save the recovered files on another partition or disk

When checking the file for recovery, click on "Recover" to retrieve them.

What you should keep in mind is: don't save the recovered files on the same place where you lost them, in case you overwrite them. If you don't find all the files, the deleted files will be overwritten for your new files' storage.
