Data Loss During Up-Grading to Mac Leopard and Mac Recovery Solution

Time to time, Apple has introduced many advanced operating systems to be used on Mac systems and Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard is the sixth major release in the row. Leopard has been released in the form of two different variants, the desktop version and the server version. The Mac OS X 10.5 is the successor of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger and has developed with more than 300 advanced changes over the previous one. In short, Leopard has been much advanced with respect to Mac OS Tiger and is the final version for the Power PC based Mac. Hence, many users, both who use the Intel based Mac as well as who use Power PC based Mac, want to upgrade to Leopard.

At many situations, when the product has been improved significantly in a number of grounds, the up-gradation process cause problems, may even result in data loss or inaccessibility and up-gradation to Mac Leopard is no exception. In such a case, in order to recover back your seemingly lost data, you need to pick any Mac recovery utility.

Mac OS X 10.5 comes with some really attractive features, such as ‘Back to My Mac’, which enables the MobileMe users to access their home computer, away from home through Internet. Furthermore, with ‘Boot Camp’, which is a software assistant, facilitates users to install other operating systems (Windows XP SP2 and later, Vista, Windows 7) on a separate partition with Intel based mac system. Moreover, with a newly designed Dock, Stacks, an almost transparent menu bar, automated back-up utility- Time Machine, updated Finder etc, Leopard has given an ease of usage.

Still, following are few possible erroneous situations, which may annoy you while up-grading to Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard from a previous version of Mac OS X:

Usually, once you complete the installation of Mac OS X, you need to reboot your Mac system and the system fails to boot with an unusual Blue Screen Of Death. The system hangs infinitely until you make a power shut down, which may cause further damage to the system resulting in corruption or crash of the system.

As Apple has incorporated a new version of File vault with mac Leopard, users used to be at the receiving end of problems while up-grading from a previous version. Though Apple has recommended to turn off the File vault at the time of up-gradation, many times, it causes problems because the process is very slow and users hesitate to turn it off.

The up-gradation of Leopard is on such a large scale that it may sometimes cause conflicts with the existing applications and data inaccessibility.

In all the above situations, if you do not have proper backup of your data, you have no other option except running an Mac data recovery software to bring back your valuable data.
