Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to get the deleted files that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available. If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be Data Recovery for Mac Mac Data Recovery Photo Recovery and Free Registry Cleaner from uFlysoft

Error C:04:00

  1. Turn off the camcorder.
  2. Remove the battery or disconnect the AC power adapter for 60 seconds.
  3. Insert the battery or reconnect the AC adapter.
  4. Turn on the camcorder.
  5. If the error message appears, service may be required.
If your camcorder still shows the same error code, then you'll have to send in your camcorder for service.

Need to recover deleted videos from HDD

When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that tells the system where the data for those files is located. The area containing the deleted data is also now marked as free space so it is available for any new files to be written there instead. So most of the time, you are able to get back deleted files from computer. You may try a free data recovery software to view deleted files so that you know whether the deleted files are recoverable. One I used to use is asoftech data recovery program which you can download from site belowhttp://www.asoftech.com/adr/

How can we recover accidentally

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.

Hello i have accidentily deleted

In this case you may need video recovery software, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover photo and music files.
Connect your camcorder (memory card or hard disk) to your computer with such recovery program installed, and then start to recover. Take the trial version first,

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

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