  1. I've spent nights using this and numerous other programs with no joy. I deleted a video by mistake from my SD card, used it once afterwards, then not again, but the video seems impossible to retrieve, yet videos on the card that I deleted ages ago and must have been written over many times, have been recovered, just not the one I want. ZAR 'saved' it but nothing will play it, I have used numerous video repair programs but again, no joy.

  2. I had a 64gb SD card on my phone and accidentally deleted a 2 1/2 minute video. I used my PC to download PhotoRec, inserted my SD card via USB, and followed the procedure. You're right it took forever to recover, but when I looked at what was recovered by PhotoRec, I was pleasantly surprised to find the video file I deleted. Thanks, it worked.

  3. Had one of those SanDisk Compact Flash monsters come in seeking data recovery but neither Windows 7, OpenSUSE nor MacOS Sierra could run recovery on it. SUSE gave an error trying to mount it, Sierra never saw it, and 7 could interact fine with it but wouldn't assign it a drive letter – disk management and diskpart had no sign of it but it was in Explorer under "Removable Device." Not sure what else I could have tried.

  4. Sir, you totally saved my life with this utility. I formatted and lost our entire Disney vacation; this little program recovered every HD video clip I took. I was lucky I didn't write much to the card after the format, of course. But this is amazing, thanks so much. My next click is to donate to this company.

  5. Hey Ranjit, please help! 🙂 I accidentally deleted some very important video files as well on a 32 GB card. So I did the exact same things that you did in your video, but there were only 4 recovered files, and none of them were .mov files. There were two .gz files (33 KB each), an .xml file (3 KB), and an .apple file that was 32.45 GB, so I'm hoping my .mov files are somewhere in there. But I've done hours of research and can't figure out how to open an .apple file. Can you please help me?

  6. There's a problem with this, I have the videos recovered, but it doesn't seem to allow me to view the videos, it shows specific amount of time the videos are, like one video is 1:55 and another is like 0:47, so it's clearly reading a certain amount of data is there, it's just when I play some videos it's just a black screen all the way through and it won't even play the mov files… what happened? Mind you this is an SDXC card and its 126 gb

  7. this is what i came up with to save my content too but i cant find the files?

  8. This man knows what he's talking about. After hours of research, this is the way to recover your files absolutely free! I recovered around 2300 pictures and videos. It looks scary and tricky but it works and nothing happens to your computer. I did it on windows. It took about 3-4 hours. You can donate to the guy who invented the software if you'd like. Awesome, THANK YOU!!

  9. Thank you! Program is a little confusing even with directions (if you don't know exactly what you're looking for, i.e. the name of your disk) but this is the only one that worked. thanks!
