  3. Formatting Mac Hard Drive Volume: Sometimes you might accidentally format the important volume on the Mac hard drive instead of formatting the volume with unimportant files. It may result in deletion of all the files from hard drive. Other than this, many people tend to format the Mac volume to get rid of dreadful viruses or to sort out some corruption issues without taking the backup copy of precious files residing on the volume. Whether you have formatted the volume accidentally or intentionally you will be under severe data loss as formatting deletes all the files residing on the volume and creates new file system.

  4. Virus Attack: Virus attack on Mac hard drive severely corrupt the files stored on it. Viruses usually enter the Mac machine when you download third party applications or contents from unauthorized sites. Once they enter the computer, just deletes the precious files without any notice. As the removable drives are the main way to spread viruses, if you access any of the files stored on the removable drive without scanning it with anti viruses then your Mac hard drive gets infected by viruses.

  5. Deleted by Third Party Applications: Usage of pirated or outdated versions of third party applications for formatting, reformatting the Mac volumes results in deletion of files. Sometimes even the antivirus application installed on the computer to get rid of viruses deletes the files if the application notices that the files are severely infected from virus.
