Is It Possible to Unerase a Drive after Disk Utility’s Erase Operation on Mojave?

This blog foretells the possibility to unerase Mac hard drive after Disk Utility’s erase operation on macOS Mojave 10.14. Read on to know how you can perform the data recovery task in the quickest possible time on your iMac, Mac Mini, MacBook, or other Mac systems.

Disk Utility is an important application present in macOS Mojave. The application is useful to handle your internal and external storage devices, efficiently. Nevertheless, proper usage of the Disk Utility is essential to avoid inadvertent data loss situations.

The Uses of Disk Utility

  1. Manage physical disks and volumes: You can partition a physical disk, erase Mojave start-up disk, format an external disk for data storage, repair a corrupt disk, restore a disk, verify a disk, and encrypt or protect a disk with a password.
  2. Store data on disk images: You can create an image of the disk, convert a disk image to another format, resize a disk image, and restore a disk image to disk.
  3. Set up and manage RAID disk sets: You can create or delete a disk set, unmount a disk set, repair a disk in a mirrored disk set, add a disk to a disk set, and troubleshoot the problem of a missing or failed disk.

When you use Mojave’s inbuilt Disk Utility to erase an internal or external storage drive without taking a backup, then you end up losing all the data contained in the drive. It is a grievous situation, and you want to retrieve the erased files.
