Mac OS X is also prone to various errors. Most of these errors can be solved through Mac’s Disk Utility. However, if the hard drive damage is severe and Disk Utility is unable to resolve the issue, then the only resolution to fix the error is to use third-party Mac photo recovery software.

These tools mostly have a simple intuitive user-interface that enable you to recover lost photos files by yourself without the help of any technical support.

For a successful recovery of your photos files, it is wise to download the photo recovery software on a drive other than the drive from where the data has been lost. Click here to see how.

This precaution is suggested for preventing overwriting of deleted data. Because if you download the tool on your affected drive and keep on using this drive for storing your files, then there are chances of overwriting your deleted image files.

Since any recovery software cannot extract an overwritten file, it is best to avoid restoring photos to the same drive.
