An Introductory Guide to Data Recovery

MacTuts+:

Data loss is something that no one ever wants to go through, but unfortunately, a lot of us will at some point. Whether it’s a lost thumb drive that we failed to back up or an accidental deletion of an important folder, potential hazards are everywhere. Prevention is your first step, but in the case that you do encounter a disaster, this guide will help you through it.

A guide I’ve written for Mactuts+ on the services available should you ever find yourself in the rather unpleasant circumstance of losing data that wasn’t backed up. I’ve been looking forward to this being published for a while, it’s a topic that honestly doesn’t get enough exposure and a lot of users genuinely have no idea what to do if (and usually when) data loss occurs.
