Where does a deleted file go? any chance for recovery?

I accidentally deleted an obviously important file on my player and now it doesn't want to play any mp3. the situation is this: i wanted to rename some mp3 files on my player. so i connected it to the pc and before opening the "music" folder, i noticed a file, which was out of all the folders (music, photos, audio, etc.) and stupidly deleted it. then i renamed some mp3 files and and safely removed the player from the pc. and when i switched it on and tried to play an mp3 file, all files play intermittently and mixed with one another. besides that, when i connected the player to the pc again, i found quite a lot of mp3 files, obviously corrupted in some way, unable to be even deleted. a message comes out, saying "the file cannot be deleted because it is corrupted or unreadable". so what do i do now? if this deleted file, important for the playback, cannot be recovered, at least i would like to delete all mp3 files and download them again, but i can't even do that, because they are corrupted or unreadable..? any suggestions? thank you all very much in advance.

How do I recover a recording deleted accidentally from Sansa e250

It is possible to recover your lost recordings.

First things first: DO NOT take any more recordings with the MP3 that you want to recover records from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the MP3 to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive" or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your recordings with Wondershare Recovery Software from the following link:

Video Audio Photo Recovery (if you are running Windows OS)
Mac Data Recovery (from MacUpdate site)

Do NOT try & write anything back to your MP3 until you can recover your recordings safely!

Recover data from music drive


My apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE. This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.

You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards

I deleted important files from my mp3 can i get them back

You can try this software. The trial version will search for and display the deleted files. So if it shows the file you want to recover, you may need to buy it to recover the files.

I accidently deleted all the stuff i had on my mp3 player. how do i go about getting it backit happen while i was trying to down load some other music from my computer....

Try searching the internet for 'mp3 player file recovery' or 'ipod file recovery'. There are some programs out there that will retrieve accidentally erased files. I haven't tried any, so can't recommend any particular one.

The most important thing is to not add anymore stuff to the player until you have attempted a recovery.

Good luck!
