How can I recover deleted files using Mac Terminal?

Hi everyone, I accidentally deleted some important files on my Mac, and I’m hoping to recover them through the Terminal. I’m not very tech-savvy and could really use a step-by-step guide or any advice you might have. Thanks in advance!

Hey there, recovering deleted files using Mac Terminal can be…tricky, especially if you’re not super techy. The Terminal isn’t the most user-friendly for this kind of task. There’s a thing called ‘data recovery software’ that’s a lot easier to use.

I’d recommend trying Disk Drill for Mac. It’s straightforward, and many people have had success with it. Here’s an independent review you can check out: Independent Disk Drill Review.

If you insist on using the Terminal, you might look into the ‘rm’ command with ‘undelete’ options or even using ‘Time Machine’ if you have snapshots of your data. Honest advice? Go with Disk Drill and save yourself the hassle.

Hey there, sorry you’re going through this mess. Honestly, trying to recover deleted files via Terminal on a Mac isn’t easy, especially if you’re not tech-savvy. Mac doesn’t make it simple. You could try ‘Disk Drill for Mac’ but, to be real, I haven’t had the best time with it. It’s a bit clunky and not as effective as advertised. Maybe give it a shot, but don’t get your hopes too high. Backing up regularly is key. FML, right?

Using Terminal to recover deleted files on a Mac? That’s like fixing a car with a toothbrush. If your files are that important, you should look for a real solution.

Terminal might not even restore everything properly, especially if you’ve already written new data to the drive. Wasting time with command line scripts you don’t fully understand could make it worse. Just use Disk Drill for Mac. It’s way more effective and user-friendly. Yeah, it’s not free and can be heavy on system resources, but the success rate is what matters.
