Recover Deleted Files When the Files Are Not In the Mac Trash Bin

“Hi, I deleted more than 5000 photos on my Mac. After deletion, I realized I didn’t copy them to my external hard drive. I open the trash bin, but I couldn’t see any of my photos. Is it possible to recover these photos?” – Maris

Normally, when we delete files on Mac, the deleted files will be moved to the trash bin on the Mac. The deleted files will not disappear and can be easily put back till we empty the trash bin. So, in most cases, we can easily recover the deleted files from Mac trash bin. But, in some cases, we can’t find the deleted files in the trash bin, such as:

  • When we delete the files, the system will directly delete the files because the files are so big and can’t be stored in the trash bin.
  • After deleting the files, we just empty the trash bin or the trash bin is emptied by third-party cleaning software.
  • We can’t find the deleted files because the trash bin is hidden or lost.
  • You delete files from USB flash drive or external device, the files will not be moved to the Mac trash bin.

But don’t panic, the deleted files are not permanently lost. With data recovery software, we still can recover the deleted files when we can’t find them in Mac trash bin.
