Post subject: How to Recover Deleted Files from Time Machine Posted: Mon Dec 17, 2018 11:50 pm
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?
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.
