My digital voice recorder got wet. How can I

OK - I hear you and I tell you - don't panic. I have had a lot of this type of electronics come back.
PLEASE - remove the battery - shake the unit for any extra water coming out - set the unit with battery opening facing down - to let any water drain - let it set for 24 hours. If you replace the battery and it works end of problem - but I would remove the battery anyway after you get your information off and let it set an additional 24 hours.
I promise you - I have done this many times and once it took 4 -5 days - BUT the unit CAME BACK - THIS WORKS

Best of it

Check your battery polarity. Unlike most devices on the market, the Olympus recorders have both their batteries pointing the same direction. Normally the positive end of the battery points toward the bottom. Look inside the batter compartment for the correct polarity.

Can you recover deleted files

YES, it is definitely possible to recover such kind of files deleted from your Olympus recorder.

First things first: DO NOT take any more videos or audio with the recorder that you want to recover files from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of voice memo file recovery.

Then connect your recorder to a PC with a recovery program installed. Photo Recovery Software (also recover Voice memos, audio and video files) is right what you need to use if you are running Windows. If you are Mac OS X users, turn to Data Recovery for Mac.

But you should remember - the more you use your recorder, the less likely you may be able to recover the deleted files back! So STOP using the device ASAP. I hope this will help. Best regards!

I deleted date from Olympus VN-4100PC

When the Digital Wave Player application copies the files to yourcomputer, the default location is under My Documents>Digital WavePlayer>Message. There, you will see FolderA, FolderB, etc. +Recording & Schedule folders.

If the files are not there, use a file recovery application, such as PhotoRec to recover the deleted files.
