Recover Deleted Files


I have a Canon Powershot SD1000. I accidentally deleted the video of my son's first christmas concert last night. Is there any way to recover this file?

  Dex,
As long as you haven't shot over the photos on the card, you can get some "image recover" software and try to recover them from the card. Google "image recovery software" and see what you come up with. I just bought some Lexar CF cards and they come with a free download for one. Others may cost you 30 bucks or so.

  Sandisk 2GB and 4GB cards also come with the recovery software. As Todd said, free recovery software is available on the net while some are shareware and/or commercial product, and you may have to pay a small fee if you decide to keep them. There is a good chance you can recover your video.

  I have a program called Media Recovery that works well on all types of storage methods even Hard Drives, it finds lost photos, Audio & Videos. You can also go to a camera shop & they will be able to help you. My friend deleted all his 50th WA photos!! We were able to get them all back for him, he was then able to return safely home.

  I did a similar dumb thing erasing photo of a recent trip. PhotoRecovery LC-Tech saved my bacon.
