Snow Leopard Recovery

Snow Leopard is the operating system that was developed by Apple Inc for their Macintosh computers. Developed with much advanced features this operating system has advanced graphical user interface and many applications that allow you to complete the tasks without causing much effort. As in every operating system this also faces some of the data loss issues that are quite common in today’s world. Loss of information takes place due to various reasons as like the few that are mentioned below. Being worried for the loss of important files from the system is not the major solution. Relax this is not the permanent loss of files from the system. Data can be restored to a safer place or to another back up storage media.

Major reasons that cause loss of data in Snow Leopard OS are::

Emptying Trash: In every operating system there is a folder that stores the files that are deleted from the system. So whenever the user deletes the files from the particular partition they are landed in the Trash folder in Mac operating system. When the size of the Trash folder gets full the user cannot delete unwanted files that are present in the system. As a result without noticing, we accidentally empty the Trash bin which leads to loss of all the files that were present in the folder.

Application Fault: System partitioning is nothing but the process of multiple logical drives in the system. This is helpful as the user can store the required files in a particular order. During the process of partitioning the user might accidentally select the wrong drive and click on the format button which deletes all the files that are present in the partition.

Accidental Formatting: Many applications are installed in the system that is used to perform various tasks as required by the user. Suddenly the application fails to respond to the and hence causes loss of files that were being used. This application fault may also be caused by the virus infection or due to power surge which causes abrupt shut down of the system.
