Tip & How-To about GoPro Cameras

GoPro Recovery- Recover Deleted GoPro Video Files

GoPro is a series of action camera for outdoor activities, including Hero camera and Karma Drone. But the files in GoPro may be lost because you delete them or format the built-in storage card by mistake. How to recover deleted GoPro files is still little known. You can try some GoPro recovery software first. To avoid things in vain, I would recommend that you use RePicvid Photo Recovery to recover deleted GoPro videos.

RePicvid GoPro Recovery Software is a versatile tool to recover deleted, formatted and lost files from GoPro camera, along with memory card.

Supported model: GoPro Hero 2/3/4/5, GoPro Karma Drone, GoPro Omni, etc.

How to Recover Deleted GoPro Video Files with GoPro Recovery Software
Step 1. Connect GoPro to Computer
You can choose to connect the GoPro camera to computer with an USB cable, and make sure it displays as a separate disk on your computer. If not, just remove the microSD card and connect it to computer with a card reader.

Step 2. Scan GoPro Camera for Deleted Files
Run the GoPro recovery software and select the type of files to be restored. Then click the disk where the GoPro camera or SD card is. Next, start scanning the destination disk and find as many files as possible. You can preview the deleted videos after the scan.

Step 3. Recover Deleted GoPro Photo and Video Files
Select the deleted files you want to restore and click "Recover" to choose a storage folder. And the software will begin to recover the selected video files from your GoPro camera.

1. Before conducting GoPro recovery, you'd better not shoot with your GoPro camera. Although many software claims to be able to recover overwritten files, it depends on the situation.
2. Download the oftware to computer before connecting GoPro to it. Prevent any active processes from writing to the disk.
3. Save the recovered GoPro files to any folder other than target disk.

how to reset gopro hero3?

We've found the best way is to remove the SD card and the batteries for at least 30 seconds and then reinstall both and turn the camera on. Remember, that in addition to the data saved on the SD card, by plugging your camera into your PC with the USB cable you will be able to find any images or video stored on the camera's built in memory.

We've put together a tip sheet for the GoPro Hero 5 cameras but much of the information will help you get the most out of your Hero 3. It is important that you do not attempt to update a Hero 3 using the available GoPro firmware update as it is ONLY for wide angle Hero 5 cameras.
