Re-installation Options in Mac OS X

There are many reasons that leads us nowhere except reinstalling Mac OS X, like  operating system malfunction, system crash, removing system errors or upgrading to higher version. We come across various options to do the operation. Some of them may leads us to worst situation of data loss as they need hard drive formatting. In such cases, reinstalling operating system, needs to run Mac Data Recovery utilities on formatted drive to recover lost data.

Below are the three reinstallation options, out of which we need to select one as per  our requirement and condition:

  • Upgrade and Install:  It is the case when you want upgrade to the later version or to install OS in the selected volume. It depends upon the fact that which version you have installed on selected volume. If there is an earlier version, “Upgrade” option would be there. But if you do not have any OS installed, “Install” option will be the only choice available. Upgrade process does not interact with your Mac settings and applications, and is less time consuming than complete installation. 
  • Archive and Install: The best choice to opt for if you are having a damaged and defective Mac OS X. The process will refresh entire OS, create a new folder “Previous System”, and move old files into it. The procedure needs more disk space and time, but is completely safe from data point of view. For the safety point of view, it gives a choice to preserve network and user settings before actual installation process starts.
  • Erase and Install: The least safest method form data point of view. It completely erase all the data from hard drive/volume and then installs OS. Thus, its always recommended to take complete backup of all your valuable data before you go for process. It needs Data Recovery Software to recover lost data.
