Hello,

I have several very important documents accidentally deleted from my iMac. I can't find it anywhere now, guess it is probably because the kid has dragged them to the Trash and emptied Trash bin on my Mac. I don't have Time Machine backups. Tried on Google for free mac data recovery program, installed 2 but neither are freeware just trial version lets you scan. I am wondering if there is any real freeware file recovery on Mac that can save my docs. Thank you very much for your help if you can offer some help.

Hi, Jessica

Sorry to hear the story but there does exist Mac recovery freeware called PhotoRec (together wtih this program TestDisk). Download here,
https://ccm.net/download/download-1265-photorec

But that program works with command line (don't know if you used to handle DOS environment). It maybe a little hard for newbies. Instead I found this blog post talking about some other freeware, you can read more there for more help.
Please Search the term "mac data recovery data-security-freeware-blogspot " on google (seems external site live link cannot be put here)

Next time make full use of Time Mahine on your mac. Best regards.

I've used several and have been very happy with MYPCBackup. I think once you try them, you'll agree that nobody else can touch them in terms of quality, customer service and security. for more information :
