How To Recover Data From The Hard Drive Of a Dead Mac

I have some important files with valuable information, but I can’t access them— it seems that the Mac hard drive is either damaged or erased. Is there any solution for Dead Mac Hard Drive Recovery from damaged drives and corrupt media?

Very often data on failed hard drive is recoverable. This happens due to a software failure rather than a hardware problem, its files remain inaccessible but intact on the hard drive. For dead Mac hard drive recovery, Mac users are required to determine reason for drive crash, whether it is due to logical failure or mechanical failure. In a logical failure, the drive’s components are physically undamaged, but because of either accidental formatting or a corrupt file system, the drive is not able to find and navigate its own data. However, unless it has been overwritten, data still remains on hard drive.


A mechanical failure means that hard drive has broken parts that are preventing it from working. On a Mac, the process to examine drive’s condition is a bit simpler. If failed hard drive reveal its files and show up on another computer, your hard drive is probably fine, but your operating system needs to be re-installed. If your files don’t show up on the secondary computer, then your drive is damaged. Data recovery software is needed to recover contents on hard drive.
