If you happen to have lost access to your data and are a Mac use then you should consider using Mac data recovery software. There is quite a selection of tools available online, but it can become quite a challenge to find software that will recover all of the data you need, be it documents, images, presentations, video files and other vital information.
Before you decide to get a piece of software that will do the job, check that it supports the file type you want to extract (from my experience, the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is one of the best tools and has yet to fail any recovery).
You have the option online to get free Mac data recovery software or a professional solution. The tool I mentioned before is a professional one, although I would recommend it to any user. Although it is an investment, it works on most file types and on many devices, not just the Mac, meaning you will be able to use it in the future to get the most bang for your buck.
Free solutions also work, but are often associated with excessive ads, registrations and do not always provide the solution you need.
All in all it is your decision how you want to recover data, but I for one value my time and can’t spend precious time (and nerves) trying to get the data I need. Often I need it urgently, but mostly I need it recovered safely and efficiently.
