Those voice recordings can be recovered provided not overwritten(if you keep taken more records, then possible). But do not be that worried as it is not so easy to be overwritten, you can try some audio recovery software to get them recovered. Here are some for your option. Both programs can also recover videos and photos.

Photo Audio Video Recovery (for Windows)
Mac Photo Audio Video Recovery (for Mac OS X)

Note: Before your audios are recovered, do not attempt to save more files.

OK! Act carefully to restore them all back:
1. Do not save anything new on this recorder in case that anything new on it would rewrite your deleted files.
2. Insert this recorder to your computer.
3. Download a recorder data recovery freeware to your computer and restore all your deleted files back successfully as soon as possible:

4. Save and back up restored files on another memory card or hard drive in case of data recovery failure.
Next time, you should never be so careless to delete anything important and always remember back up it well.

SOURCE: Need to recover deleted file from recorder

Sorry for a late reply but chances are high to recover your deleted files.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your device to a PC, and have a try of Photo Recovery (also recover audio, voice memos, video files etc), a data recovery program which is good at recovering media files lost. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

Lastly, I hope you good luck. Again you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. Regards

I deleted my audio files directly from the computer. Now that I try to record again, the device says that memory is full, even though I have no files on it. How do I reset it to record again?


To erase a selected file, first press the [ERASE] button. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ERASE," and then press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
To erase all files in a folder, first select the folder and press the [ERASE] button for three seconds or longer. Next, press the [+] (plus) or [-] (minus) button to select "ALL ERASE." Finally, press the [ERASE] or [OK] button.
NOTE:
The recorder should be formatted using only by using the internal FORMAT function found in the recorder's Menu. Formatting using the computer may corrupt system files needed to run the recorder, so computer formatting is not recommended. Individual files can be deleted using the computer with no negative effects.

CX602 erase issue. how do i erase files?


I have a shaperper Image voice recorder and I accidently found out how to erase a recording today. You first have to get to the recording you want, which ever one it is first, 1, 2, etc. Once you have located it, stop and press erase. It will then say "erase" on the screen. At that point you press erase a second time and then it will say "stop". This will erase that recording.

Hop this helps.

2 Press the FF or REW button to choose “FORMAT”.
3 When the PLAY button is pressed, “nO” is displayed.
4 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
After “ARE yOU SURE” is displayed, “nO” will be displayed.
5 Press FF or REW to select “yES”, and press the
PLAY button.
“DONE” displays when formatting ends.
s It may take up to several tens of seconds to finish the initialization. Do not remove the battery or detach
the battery compartment from the recorder during that time. Otherwise data may be damaged.
