External hard drives are generally used for keeping a backup of important files like pictures, videos, songs, documents, etc. By using an external hard drive, one can easily transfer a huge amount of data from one system to another. You just need a USB port to connect the external hard drive, in order to save or retrieve data from it. But this portability might lead to corruption and in turn can cause data loss. But other than corruption, there is one very common reason to lose data from an external hard drive or any other drive, i.e., deletion.

Suppose you have hundreds of photos copied in your external hard drive. One day you connected your external hard drive to your system to manage those pictures. While going through the photos, you found that some were not of use and you thought of deleting them. Here deletion might have been performed in the following ways –

Intentional Deletion – You decided to delete some pics and pressed delete, but after some time you realized that you have done a mistake and need those pics back. The user might also delete pictures thinking that they have a copy of that but when they realize the loss, it was too late.

Accidental Deletion – Deleting pictures accidentally is yet another way of losing important files. You were removing some unwanted photos and accidentally selected some good ones and pressed delete. This might happen due to a slight distraction while removing unwanted files.

When the deletion happens, the first place the user looks for is the Recycle Bin or Mac Trash. It is a temporary storage where all the deleted files reside until completely deleted. The user can easily recover deleted photos from the Recycle Bin, but to their surprise, the pictures were not present there. What is the reason for this? Most of the users are unaware of the fact that files deleted from an externally connected device are permanently removed from the device. They are not saved in the Recycle Bin or Trash like the files deleted from the system does. Even if the deletion is performed by using just the delete option, the photos are removed permanently. So, in order to recover deleted photos from the external hard drive, you will need a recovery tool.
