How to retrieve my deleted videos/pictures

I accidently deleted a few important pictures and videos while removing some useless ones. Since i have to delete each one indivdually, i can become hard to realize what you are and aren't deleteing, especially when there are many. I've tried many of those free retrieval software you can download, but many find what i need and then wont let me actually get it back before i pay them for the full version. Is the a free, or even simpler, way to get these files back? Much obliged, Shawn i accidentally deleted all my photos off my cam, and tried retrieving them, i was successful in doing so, but i couldnt retrieve the videos that i had on it, what the software did, was restore pieces of the video in jpeg. i want to get the entire video and not individual pics of wat was in the video. The software did restore a piece of the video, but like six seconds of it.

I had a case when I accidentally mirrored my drive and overwritten ALL my files. I tried to download a software "RecoverMyFiles v3.9" and it worked perfectly for me! In your case, you can still recover all of those deleted files of yours as long as they're still intact ( meaning to say the drive isn't formatted ). All the deleted files could be found on a hidden folder called RECYCLER.

The drawback when you recovered your files, you have to open each of the files you recovered 'cause it won't provide you all the file names before you recently named your files.

Accidently delete important filesusing Shift+Delete keys in Windows XP? Can't get valued pictures back from therecycle bin after you emptied it? How to retrieve data from 'not recognized'hard drive and reconstruct inaccessible partition?

You'reLuck!Deleting or formatting won't make the data erased permanently.Thosedeleted data are still stored in the hard drive. They're just invisible orinaccessible.Only the FAT or NTFS table is erased (the information about wherethose data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors ofthe hard drive.
So long as those deleted data are not overwritten by new data, it's highlypossible to recover them. The most effective way is to rely onsome data recovery program.

Tenorshare DataRecovery is a powerful data recovery program that can easily recover lost,damaged, formatted and accidently deleted data from your laptop or computerhard disk and all kinds of USB media drives.It can recover data afterdeeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deletedor formatted.

Then,howto retrieve deleted files?


Withinfour steps, you can get back your data:
1.Select deleted recovery. It will take you a few minutes to scan your storagedevice;
2. heck the deleted datayou want to recover;
3.Select a path folder for the recovered files;
4.Click "OK" to finish recovery.

Onemore tip:

If the hard drive can't be detected(means can't showup in 'My Computer' as a drive letter like C: drive),you can try this way.Putthe hard drive in a zip-lock bag and put it in the freezer for 2-3 hours. Thenwhile it's still cold plug it into the computer.If it fails, you will have to go to a recoveryoffice but let's hope not because it will cost you a lot of money and whetherthey can recover the data or not is not guarantee.

How to retrieve my deleted videos/pictures


I'd search Tucows.com or download.com for freeware file recovery programs and try the ones with good user reviews until you find one that works. Some programs work better than others.

If none of those work you may have to try/buy one of the ones you have to pay for. Only you can decide whether the lost pictures are worth paying to recover.
