Recover data from Mac OS X Lion
Mac OS X Lion introduces some major developments to the OS X platform to change your computing experience on Mac. There are some prominent changes under the hood that make this version worth the upgrade.
- With multi-touch gestures, user interaction with the computer is all about swiping, scrolling, and tapping across the trackpad. It adds an additional layer of flexibility to allow you to manage documents, websites, and more with better control.
- The new Mission Control app lets you have a quick glimpse of every activity going on your Mac. With this feature, you can navigate through everything by doing a quick swipe.
- Use LaunchPad to organize your apps the iOS way. LaunchPad features an interface similar to the mobile operating system’s app structure and lets you manage all apps downloaded from the Mac App Store with minimum fuss.
- Auto-Save and Versions features make it breathtakingly simple to revert to any previous version of your document. Auto-Save saves any modifications in your document, while Versions are old copies of your document.
- With AirDrop, you can transfer your documents securely to another nearby Mac using this feature. You just need to drag and drop what you want to share to an appropriate area and confirm the transfer.
Lion also features enhancements to the apps bundled with Mac OS X to revamp functionality and simplify layouts. However, Mac users did not admire everything about this platform that was a blend of iOS and OS X. Some major problems were encountered with OS X Lion that were fixed in the minor updates like 10.7.1, 10.7.2, and 10.7.8. A few of these bugs are listed below:
- Unresponsive video playback in Safari
- Loss of administrative user accounts after upgrade from Snow Leopard
- App compatibility issues
Mac users have upgraded to OS X Lion and faced dozens of issues after performing the upgrade. These potential problems surface due to a variety of reasons, including incompatible apps, incompatible hardware, and the older version of FileVault used in OS X 10.6. All these issues introduce the risks of data loss. Data loss may also occur due to incomplete migration of data from one Mac drive to another drive.
