    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.

    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: Android recovery software...

    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.

    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.

    Hi. so if the vids/pics ARE stored on the internal memory and not an sd card then what ?
    That's my situation. I've downloaded Dr. Fone & although I can connect, the 'Analyze" part does not complete so I cannot scan. It tries alternatives, over & over, & my phone restarts over & over ...(I wrote to their support team). I'm going nuts, accidentally deleted concert pics & have to recover them !! I tried Stellar Phoenix & Remo Recover but neither worked cuz I can't acess mass usb storage.
    In developer options I checked usb debugging ...

    Any solutions that require USB Mass Storage mode aren't going to work - Google removed support for that in the recent versions of Android.

    I've used DiskDigger http://market.android.com/details?id...ech.diskdigger but it requires the phone to be rooted.

    For the future, install "Dumpster" now. Then you'll have it the next time you delete files.

    I believe most of the recovery software require looted phone so that can detect your phone and access to your phone. if the lost video were in external memory card (SD card), that you could plug your SD card to a card reader and use the card reader to plug to your computer, let the recovery software detect you SD card, this can save you the trouble of loot the phone.
    if you still don't understand you can check My Blog for further information ,this blog is about recover photos from S5 SD card, I think it has the same use.
