Question about Sony Handycam DCR-SR40 Camcorder
Hi. My son decided to delete the videos off our camcorder and I had A LOT of videos on there....is there any way to recover these videos? I am beside myself that I have lost all these memories!!!
You get some chance. 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 Windows recovery software (recover photos, VIDEOS and music files)
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.
