Can I recover a document that has been accidentally deleted?

Have you permanently deleted it or is it in "Trash" from where it can be recovered?

If permanently deleted, and a Time Machine backup was made between the time it was created and the time it was deleted, you can retrieve it from Time Machine.

If the media has not been written to since the delete, AND it wasn't securely deleted, there is a possibility that TESTDISK/PHOTOREC might be able to recover it. Or just Undelete might work.

If you are signed in with apple id then go to and sign in. Then go to settings and under advanced it gives you the option to restore files.

If you accidentally deleted files and haven’t emptied them, maybe you can enter into the Recycle Bin to check. If they already were deleted in the Recycle Bin, the only thing you need to do, is to get a Mac data recovery software, like Cisdem DataRecovery.

Depending on whether you have created an iTunes or iCloud backup before, there are a couple ways for you to recover deleted documents from iPhone. If you have created one before, just restore the backup file and you can get them back to your phone easily. But if no, you might need to use the FORecovery iPhone Data Recovery tool to help you out.
