Mac OS X includes disk utility as an inbuilt tool that serves purposes such as mounting hard drive, verifying, repairing or erasing it. It is also used to enable/disable file system journaling and other significant purpose. In spite of it being an efficient utility, there can be situations in which ongoing attempt fails due to improper working. This may happen with any Mac OS X system; however it is most often encountered in Mac OS X leopard, 10.5. As an ultimate solution data recovery OS X needs to done using advanced mac data recovery software.
In a particular situation on trying to format or remove Mac OS X volume, error message as “file system formatter failed” may be received. The problem most often occurs in case of changes in file system of particular Mac system volume, resulting from one of the following causes –
- Partition scheme used by leopard’s disk utility is incompatible with OS X 10.6
- Damage in Mac system partition table
Since partition table and the schemes so implemented are of critical importance, it may not be possible to access data and items stored in the hard drive. This arise the need of data recovery from OS X after the error is resolved as formatting the hard drive is the only way to out to overcome the problem.
During the process of formatting hard drive, entry for the files made in the directory is deleted however the files are still on their location. Exhaustive scanning done by data recovery software extracts every bit of data and information from the partitions and enables its restore easily possible by showing preview of the data files and folders so obtained. Different types of files such as pictures, videos, data and text files are also recovered by powerful systematic scanning carried out. Moreover it is used for data recovery from Mac OS X 10.6 snow leopard, 10.5 leopard and from HFS wrapper, HFS+, HFSX, HFS file system volumes.
