How to recover deleted video from android
I accidentally deleted the entire video folder from my Samsung galaxy s2, the videos are precious to me and my family, so I was wondering if there’s any video recovery/undelete utility I can use to bring my videos back, the software should be able to work on android, google gives me some suggestions but none of them have mentioned android. Please help, how can I recover deleted videos from my android phone?
There’s no fundamental difference between a sd card installed on your android and the computer’s hard drive, when files like videos or photos deleted, they are not erased from the sd card or built-in storage, it’s only the os making them invisible by removing the pointer to the photos or videos from the file allocation table, meanwhile, the actual data files stays safe and sound at somewhere on the storage, you just need to find them.
But there’s something at odds, if you haven’t use your android to shot videos or photos after the deletion, the deleted videos (3gp, mov, mp4, etc…) are perfectly recoverable with android video recovery software, after that point of time, since the os are now perfectly happy to overwrite the place where the deleted files are stored, every new files saved on the android pose a threat to the deleted videos, they might be overwritten by the new data.
