Cause of Mac Error Code 0


This type of error generally arises when the user is trying to copy some data larger than 4GB. The process is interrupted and whatever data you have saved on the external hard drive, it becomes inaccessible. There are many reasons responsible for the occurrence of the Mac Error Code 0.

How to Fix Mac Error Code 0


In order to fix Mac Error Code 0, users will first need to check whether the error message is due to the FAT32 file system of the external hard drive. If it is so then you will need to change the file system to HFS or HFS+. But you need to know that doing so would not allow you to access the data on your Windows operating system but only on Mac OS. If the ground of the error is due to corruption in the hard drive, then the only alternative is to format the drive. But doing would erase all the data and can only be retrieved if one opts for any 3rd party Mac OS X Data Recovery software. The software makes use of advanced algorithm and programming methods to scan the hard drive and recover the data that are not overwritten. It can recover data from all kinds of file systems like HFS, HFS+, HFS Wrapper and HFSX.
