How to recover deleted files from the Trash on a Mac Pro (Not Emptied Yet)

When you notice that certain files on your Mac Pro are missing, the first thing you should do is look in the Trash Bin. The Trash Bin is a unique folder that saves deleted files temporarily until they are emptied.

The following approach can be used to retrieve files from the Trash Bin:

  • Click on the Trash Bin icon to open it.
  • Locate the files you want to recover that have been lost or destroyed.
  • Right-click on the file or folder you want to open.
  • To restore deleted files on Mac to their original place, select Put Back.

External devices linked to your Mac Pro also have a Trash Bin that may be utilized in the same way to retrieve lost files. The trash for that device is saved in a secret folder called ".Trashes" by macOS. You can opt to display hidden files, after which you can use the ".Trash" folder for the external drive in the same way you used the primary Trash Bin on your Mac Pro.
