Part 6: How to use Fireebok Data Recovery in macOS High Sierra

Since Apple released the new macOS system- High Sierra, and one of the important new feature is APFS (Apple File System). APFS will be new the new default file system. It will bring some heavy-duty security, including built‑in encryption, crash‑safe protections, and simplified data backup and more. Many data recovery apps can no longer access your startup disk directly.

Fortunately, Fireebok Data Recovery has solved this problem, it can scan your system startup disk or partition for the deleted files in the latest macOS High Sierra.

In order to recover lost data from your startup drive, Fireebok Data Recovery requires read-only access. To grant this level of access on macOS 10.13 (High Sierra) you need to disable file system protection. This is part of the System Integrity Protection module (SIP or “rootless”) introduced in macOS El Capitan and substantially severed in High Sierra.

Partially disabling SIP is absolutely safe! Once you are done with data recovery, you can re-enable it.

Step #1: Reboot your Mac

Click the menu on your Mac and select Restart.

Step #2: Boot into macOS Recovery Mode
