how to recover tally data from the twice formatted NTFS hard disk partition ? my operating system is window xp service pack 3


Hi, Mac data loss is actually a hard task for many Mac users 'cause most of them think the Mac OS is a complicated computer operating system (At least I think it is complicated). Here are some tips you need to know after data loss happened.
1. If you meet the file loss situation, keep calm and stop using your computer to do any read or write operation until you find the way to recover the lost files because any wrong operation.
2. If you've lost a file, time is of the essence. As new files saved to Mac hard drive or storage devices, the original files gets overwritten. So do not use the drive or disk which your deleted files are stored before at all, until you have completed the scanning and recovery process.
3. The system crashed or the files loss situation happens occasionally, so remember build a backup for the files periodically is strongly needed.
4. If you meet the file loss situation again, stop using the Mac or storage device right now, use another computer to process the files recovery.
5. Remember this, no matter at the normal time or after files recovery, build a backup for the files periodically is the best method to protect your files from data loss situation.

Suddenly press initialize or delete button. how to recover videos and pictures?


You have chance to get back those deleted picture and video files from your Canon digital camcorder, BUT it is just possible. Because if those deleted files has been overwritten by new files you saved in, then there is no hope. However usually overwritten cases are hard to happen as long as the memory card or hard disk has enough volume.

Then, take so called data recovery program to handle the issue and see if you can grab some or all of the deleted files back. you may take a try Wondershare Photo Recovery (also recover videos and music under both Windows and Mac OS).
