Question about Sony Video Cameras
I accidently deleted video recordings from the 40G hard drive, either by delete-all or format selections.
Can a data-restore operation on the hard drive reverse this stuff-up ?
Deleting files from camcorder is just like clearing the recycle bin or Trash onyour comptuter. The data itself isn't deleted, just the area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new data to be written there instead. So a simple delete won't make your videos erased permanently.
As a result, you have chance to retrieve those deleted videos and images as long as the data on your camcorder(hard disk) are not written over. And the best way is to try some image recovery software, here are some for your options. Both programs can also recover photos and music.
video photo recovery program (for Windows OS)
Mac video photo recovery program (for Mac OS X)
First of all you need to install the program on your computer (choose the right version based on the operation system you are running), then connect your camcorder (HDD) to the computer and start to recover your deleted images and videos.
One More Tip: Your should act as soon as possible and before the deleted videos and images are recovered, better not take more videos in case overwritten situation will happen.
I hope you good luck, Merry Christmas!

A couple of days ago, I was able to recover deleted MOV video files from MacBook Pro even after formatting the hard drive by using a data recovery tool called Video File Recovery. This is a wonderful data recovery tool, which has two different editions one is for Mac systems and another one is for Windows systems. You can get more details from the official website mentioned below and from there you can also download the demo tool for making a trial.
