When files are deleted they still remain on camcorder hard drive and can be recovered, unless they have been overwritten by fresh data.

The only thing to do so run a data recovery program to see what can be recovered. The only program I have tested is asoftech data recovery software and it had done the job well. download the data recovery from http://www.asoftech.com/adr/

Select the drive where your files were deleted and then do a deep scan. It will find your deleted files.

You can recover the deleted videos as long as the data are not overwritten.

Deleting files(such as videos or photos) from camcorder is just like clearing the recycle bin or Trash on your 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. The REAL data is still there. As a result a simple delete won't make your videos erased permanently.

Then you need opt for a third party data recovery software.

If you are running Windows, try this software(recover photos, VIDEOS and music)
For Apple Mac OS X, try this Mac data recovery software.

Install the program on your computer (choose the right version based on the operation system you are running), then connect your camcorder (memory card or HDD) to the computer and start to recover your deleted videos. I am sure you can operate the recovery on your own. Good luck.

Hello, anne_marie85! Don't worry. I recommend you to use this photo recovery software (also recover audio and video files); it can help you recover your lost video files from your Sony Camcorder (or Memory Card):
Photo Recovery for Windows Users
Photo Recovery for Mac Users
Kind Suggestion: Before your video files are retrieved, do not save more files to the device (or memory card) in case the original files (your video files) are overwritten.
Best wishes!

The deleting process won't let the files erased permanently off from your handycam HHD. These deleted files are still stored on this drive and only become invisible and inaccessible.
Therefore, you can recover these deleted files back for free from this HHD with a drive data recovery freeware called iCare Data Recovery Free, which could deeply scan your drive and do its utmost to restore all your files back:

You should never be so careless again and always back up everything important on different locations.

Your videos is not wiped off permanently after the delete. Only the space is made available to other new files, but the old data is still there. In another word, deleted file can be recovered as long as the space is not overwritten by new files. you could tryCard Data Recoverywhich will help you recover videos without casusing any data damage to your videos.

If a file has actually been "overwritten" and not just "deleted" then no your photos are toast. Had they been deleted you may of had a chance. However you might want to attempt to use a program such as Tenorshare Data Recovery and try and recover your pictures. I have used it to recover deleted photos from samsung galaxy I doubt it will find anything that is actually recoverable but it never hurts to try

I deleted my videos from sony handycam I need to recover them


Those deleted videos are highly possible to be recovered, you should use video recovery software to help, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.

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

A Tip:
Before your videos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the handycam memory card or stick in case the original files(your videos) are overwritten.
