APFS (Apple File System) is an exclusive file system developed by Apple Inc. with the aim of replacing the currently widely-used HFS file system. From macOS 10.13, APFS is the new default file system for Mac. With a primary focus on encryption, APFS is optimized for Apple-compatible storage devices, such as hard drives, flash drives and other removable storage devices.
Although compared with HFS and HFS+, APFS has vastly improved performance on data management and data loss prevention, it can't be completely safe. We may lose data on an APFS drive due to unintentional deletion, format, partition loss, unmountable drive, virus attack, power failure, unsafe ejection or other improper operations.
When meeting the above problems, we will be eager to know how to recover data from APFS drive if the lost data are still useful for us. Actually, only with an APFS data recovery software, we can get our lost data back. In this passage, an APFS data recovery freeware - iBoysoft Mac Data Recovery is highly recommended.
Before performing data recovery, here is one tip for recovering data from APFS drive: After realizing we have lost data, we should avoid making any further operation on the APFS drive, including saving new files, format.
That's because those further operations are very possible to write new data to the drive and make the original data been overwritten. We will lose the chance to get the original data back once they have been overwritten.
