File loss and data loss are two most critical problems, for every computer user. You may lose your valuable files and data from all types of computers. Even the safest operating system, Mac OS X, may fail at some point of time and data loss situations take place. In such cases, a complete backup of your mission critical data proves to be of great help. You can easily restore your lost data from backup and bring your system back to life.

Mac OS X creates index of all the file on hard drive, in file system. Every file has entries in the file system index, which include file name, file location, file size, and file type. When a file is accessed from the hard drive, the index is accessed by the operating system. Operating system reads the storage location of the file and extract it.
Whenever a file is deleted, only the file system index entry of the file is deleted and the disk space occupied by the deleted file is set as free. The deleted file is recoverable until it is being overwritten by any other file.
