“Wrong Volume Type” Error in Mac OS X and Data Loss Powered By Docstoc
					?Mac OS X operating system enables you to divide your hard drive into various
volumes. Each volume can be used as a separate hard drive and any type of data can
be stored on it. Every Mac system includes at least one system or boot volume that
contains operating system. Each boot volume has a file system, such as HFS, to
manage data. However, in some situations, Mac OS X operating system can not
identify the volume and thus that volume can not be accessed. In such cases, you
encounter severe data loss situations if an updated backup is not in place. At this point
of time, Mac Recovery Software are required to get your valuable data back.

In a practical scenario, you may come across the below error message when you try to
access data from an HFS file system volume of Mac OS X hard drive:

"-123 wrgVolTypErr Not an HFS volume [wrong volume type error or (obsolete)
operation not supported for MFS]"

After the above error message, HFS file system volume becomes completely
inaccessible. To access your mission-critical data on the Mac hard drive volume, you
need to find out the cause of this problem and fix it using File recovery mac .

Root of the problem

As stated in the above error message, this problem occurs when Mac OS X operating
system can not recognize the format of HFS file system volume. It can be due to
corruption of the HFS file system or HFS file system volume. Corruption is generally
due to virus infection, improper system shutdown, and other such reasons.

How to resolve this problem?

In order to work around this problem, you should repair your hard drive using Disk
Utility. It detects and fixes file system related errors. However, if the corruption is
serious, you should format the hard drive and restore all your valuable data from
backup.

In case the backup is not updated or is corrupt, you have to opt for a third-party mac
file recovery application. The software are specifically designed to carry out in-depth
scan of the entire hard drive and extract lost, missing, and inaccessible data from it.

You need not be technically savvy to use these tools for retrieving data as they have
simple and interactive graphical user interface. The Mac Recovery utilities preserve
absolute integrity of your valuable data with read-only demeanor.

Stellar Phoenix Macintosh Data Recovery software recovers all lost, missing, and
inaccessible data from corrupt or inaccessible Mac OS X hard drive volumes. The
software is designed for Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.5 Leopard, 10.4 Tiger, and
10.3.9 Panther. It recovers data from HFS, HFS+, HFSX, HFS Wrapper, and FAT file
system volumes.
