Recently, I accidentally deleted an application from my Mac. It is easy to re-download the application itself. However, I have some recordings on it and they are all lost. Could you please let me know if there is any software to recover deleted applications from Mac hard drive without losing its recordings?

We often download various applications from App store, iTunes or other websites. Those applications can help us to connect with friends, edit working files, watch videos, record daily life, etc. Naturally, some of the application files or called recordings created on applications can be very important. Sometimes, we may remove an application from Mac due to limited memory or accidental deletion. After that, the application files, such as chatting records, videos, music, pictures, are all gone. How heart-breaking it could be if the application files are still useful for us.
