We may ask the same question on forums when we accidentally delete important files on our Mac. The answer to the question given above is it's possible to recover deleted files on Mac without software. And ways to recover deleted files on Mac without software will be given in this article.

Ways to recover deleted files on Mac without software

Apple has done something for us to recover deleted files. It enables us to recover deleted files on Mac without software by operating "Undo Move", restoring deleted files from Trash, or recovering deleted files from Time Machine.

Method 1. Recover deleted files by operating "Undo Move".

If the last thing we did in the Finder was to delete files, we can select Edit > Undo Move (Command-Z) to return deleted files to their previous positions.

Method 2. Restore deleted files from Trash.

Files that we've deleted are often sent to the Trash. The Trash will hold our deleted files until we empty the Trash. So Trash is the first place to look when we delete files. If the deleted files are found in Trash, we can drag those files out or put back them.

Method 3. Recover deleted files from Time Machine.

Time Machine is useful for us to back up our files. If we have backed up those deleted files with Time Machine, we can restore our deleted file from there.

However, those ways can't work if we have emptied Trash and we have no backup for the deleted files. Under this situation, we should find good Mac data recovery software to recover deleted files.
