The Macintosh or Mac is a series of Personal Computers (PC) designed and developed by Apple Inc. It was the first commercial personal computer to feature a Mouse and Graphical User Interface (GUI). These days, Mac computers become very popular and users, who were using Windows, are now switching to Macintosh. This may due to Mac OS X, an advanced operating system which introduced an Aqua graphical user interface which users felt very cool to use. Apple’s switch to Intel processors also accounted for its popularity, which makes Mac computers less expensive, more powerful and comparable to its PC counterparts.
When a file is deleted from Mac, it is actually not removed from it. Mac systems have a holding place for deleted files called Trash, which holds the data after deletion operation is performed on it. Some times, Mac users may delete the files and accidentally empty the trash, in such a scenario, user has to use recovery software to retrieve deleted files from Mac trash.
