We’ve all felt this feeling of despair after realizing that they had accidentally deleted an important document. You may think it’s too late to get your document, but there are actually several techniques that you can try to recover it. If you have not emptied your Trash is the first place you should look. If you have made backups in Time Machine, you can restore your files from there. If nothing else has worked, try a data recovery software to rake your hard drive in search of the lost file.
