    Default Restore deleted video?

    Hi guys.

    I just got my Galaxy a few days ago, Friday. I'm new to Android basically coming off of my "dumb" phone of 5 years. I can post pics if you guys want.

    So anyways, is there a way to recover lost videos? I have been Google'ing around and I know there are solutions out there, using recovery programs and such. Essentially I took a video, it went to my gallery, then I deleted it on accident.

    When I use programs such as Recuva or Stellar my phone doesn't pop up for scan since it isn't under USB mass storage. I really don't want to root if it voids my warranty.

    Thanks for your help. I hope I can get this figured out.

    Just to clarify...I'm assuming the video was stored on the internal memory and not on an external micro sd card? If it was on an external micro sd I would suggest just taking it out of the phone and putting it in an adapter (either usb or sd) and try to recover from it that way.

    I have also had GREAT success with EASEUS Data Recovery Wizard Professional.

    i had no idea this was possible lol.
    so when i delete something from sd, its still using up some memory with some kind of algorhythm or something which can create the original or what??
    how does it work lol?

    You don't really have a lot of options. If it were me I'd mount the device in a custom recovery and scan with a PC file recovery app.

    Whenever you 'delete' anything from a computer (or in this case, a smartphone) it doesn't go anywhere. It's essentially hidden and the space it is taking up is flagged as writable. The file isn't gone until it is written over. There's drive wiping programs which basically fill writable space with crud than wipe it, even than there's a small chance it can be recovered. You can't really get rid of HDD data unless you literally destroy the physical drive lol.

    One of Jellybean's new features is the ability to "undo" a delete. Nice of them to include that for future accidents.

    Still looking into the situation. Honestly the video is not really in need, but I still would like to find some way of restoring it.

    Plus that Jelly Bean "restore" thing would be an amazing addition for future brain farts.

    Don't think it works on stuff deleted already, but it works beautifully on pics & vids deleted after this App has been installed-->

    So without that app installed prior to the deletion of the video...there is no way to retrieve a video...thank you very much for the info...I really appreciate it

    You should read through the link in post #7 -- but the tool mentioned there is NOT a Samsung-specific tool; instead, it is a generic file recovery tool. And, I should tell you, that I have tried several tools trying to recover files from SD cards, and they generally have not worked well. If the file is on the INTERNAL memory, I believe there is no way to recover it.

    Yes, you can get back your lost / deleted videos wth this:

    Do check for compatibility. A free trial is on there too... I hope it helps.

    This will not work on the current Android OS. From their website. "Supports Android OS versions 1.5 to 2.3.5"
    Mass Storage was removed by Google with the ICS OS.

    [quoted post deleted by moderator]

    There is NO PC Based software that will restore any file on any Android system since Google released ICS. Google removed Mass Storage from the OS. For any PC based software to work the phone would need to mount in Mass Storage which now CAN NOT be done on the Internal SD.

    You should also post how much the software cost. It is not free it cost $49.95. I did download the trial version and it seems to work.

    You may follow a step by step samsung galaxy data recovery guide, this one seems quite useful:

    I didn't follow the steps there, but from the article, seems that it supports recovery from both samsung phone internal memory and sd card.
