Those who practice digital photography as their profession believe Mac for its performance and user-friendliness. Reasons are availability of attractive multimedia editing tools, support to numerous external media, and smooth run. Nevertheless a Mac computer benefits unparallel ease of use for all users in media companies and entertainment, digital storage cards are always coupled with anomalies that might corrupt them. Most of the Mac users think that media card corruption leads to data loss. However, it is not completely true. It is in fact the case of data inaccessibility, in which file system of storage card gets infected and not the actual data.
To be simpler, consider the situation when you attach your card to your Mac computer and it says “Memory Card Error.” Undoubtedly, this error is caused by so called media card corruption, but this can be fixed. Each card is formatted with a file system. The file system in turn holds all the pointers to the files stored on the card. When a card generates an error, such as above, it actually indicates corruption of file system. Thus, if you reformat the card with a new file system, the original data remains there, still untouched. Similarly, when you delete a file, the file pointer gets deleted from the file system, while the file stays behind at its original location.
Since Mac doesn’t allow access to any such file, whose pointer has got deleted or replaced in the file system, there is no direct mean to retrieve such data. The only possible solution is the use of Mac Photo Recovery software.
Digital camera uses memory card to store memorable pictures and then user transfers the memorable pictures in the Mac operating system, this is mainly because Mac operating system is very powerful operating system. This is one of the preferable choices for designer and graphic editors. This is one of the most eminent and excellent tools that has the features creative designing. This is very simple and easy to use as such even the non-professional user can bring changes in the videos, images and graphic files.
However there may be many situation in which valuable pictures may get deleted from the Mac OS X hard drive, due to this reason the important data gets deleted and the need for Mac Photo recovery becomes important. In this situation the precious multimedia files get deleted.
Different reason which is responsible for the loss of stored memorable pictures are discussed below:
- It may happen when file system gets corrupted
- The catalog tree is damaged
- Partition table may be corrupt that results in the inaccessibility of Mac OS X volumes.
So to resolve the problem user can use disk utility which is easily available in the Mac OS X. It can resolve the problem of corruption but it may not work at the in case the hard drive is damaged severely. In that case it shows the following error message:
“Verify and Repair Volume ‘disk1s3′ Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
Invalid B tree node structure.
Volume check failed.”
Resolution of the problem is to use third party software known as photo recovery for Mac. It has powerful algorithm that performs advanced scanning to recover the deleted data. It analyzes the entire surface of storage card to locate orphaned files and folders. Such files and folders are then listed for the purpose of recovery to users. The applications offer easy and secure recovery through simple graphical user interface and read-only conduct. It recovers photos from hard drive, USB drive, memory card, memory stick, digital camera, and Apple iPod.
