    If the file is not on a memory card but just the hard drive, should I just scan the whole "G" drive of highlight one of the file folders?

  • ken_reid Nov 10, 2010

    This camera has an internal memory, and there is no memory card in the slot where one can go. Does that affect the way or ability to retrieve deleted data. I found out a small file was saved after the delete was done, does that mean it is now impossible to get the deleted data?

    Thanks, I am assuming I should download the Pro version of the software you are recommending???

Hi,


Thanks for using Fixya.

Download a recovery software from this link.

This software can deep scan your computer and recover your lost files back without requiring extra skills. Here is the steps might be helpful to you.

First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Connect your camera to computer. You should see camera shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer. If not, take out memory card, and connect it to computer.

Download recovery software. Install and open asoftech photo recovery, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.


Good luck and have a nice day.

    There is no hard drive inside a camera...Just like a computer has a hard drive as its memory, small devices like camera has memory card as its memory.

    just install the recovery software into your computer. Connect your camera and open that recovery software and browse for the camera (G: drive). If the video clips could be recovered, the software will recover it and if it is not found then there is no other way

Hello there,
Yes, it is possible. But you will be required to take off the hard drive and then connect it to your computer. You will then need to use a software like Recuva to retrieve deleted files. Make sure also that you are not going to write anymore data on the hard drive so that recovery would still be possible.
Let me know how that goes.
Goodluck!

How to Recover Deleted Files from Seagate Hard Drive in Windows XP?


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.
This program is equipped with four critical modules:"deleterecovery", "format recovery", "partition recovery" and"raw recovery". It can recover data after deeply scanning yourstorage device to look for lost data due to drives crash, virus corruptedpartitions, system sabotage, physical damage etc.
It supports for almost all Windows systems like Windows XP,Windows7,Vista,2000,2003,NT and common file systems (FAT12, FAT16,FAT32 and NTFS).You can get ithere: http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

It can RecoverLost Data Due to

Accidental deleting

» "Shift + Delete" without backup
» "Delete All" when deleting useless files
» Cut files instead of copying and pressing"Cancle" button
» Emptying Recycle Bin after delection
Formatting
» "Media/Drive is not formatted would you liketo format now?"
Virus infection/attack
Unexpected power off
Others
» Factory setting of device
»System reinstalling but want to retrieve the oldfiles
» Inaccessible partition or drive
» Dead hard drive
» Losing files during transferring files fromstorage device to PC/laptop
» Pulling out card while the camera is on
» Removing out storage devices not in "saferemove the drive"
» Turning off the camera during a write process

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.

To recover lost, inaccessible and permanently deleted files from Windows partitions, there are several free tools available but they don't provide guarantee to success in every case. Kernel for Windows is a robust third party software that efficiently retrieves lost, deleted, damaged and inaccessible data from Windows partitions having FAT & NTFS file systems.
