Problems: ok, before I hit the panic button please somebody tell me that all the photos and videos I took with my Gopro hero 2 HD is still recoverable, I am a x sport enthusiastic but not so good at tech and I mistakenly deleted all the videos and photos, I know that the videos were taken in mp4 format on a sd card with the Gopro camera, so please somebody enlighten me about how to recover deleted photos and videos from a Gopro hero camera?
Answers: Gopro HD hero camera is the best companion for adventurous people, it can be taken to places where no other camera can compete. Videos and photos archived by this baby are nothing short of preciousness. It is understandable that your panic button is about to be switched for mistakenly deleted all the videos from your Gopro hero. Be no panic, the photos and videos deleted from the Gopro HD camera are not permanently gone, the media can be recovered with proper photo recovery software without much hassle
The step by step guide to recover deleted videos and photos from Gopro hero camera
Download photo recovery for Gopro hero, the software has versions for both windows and mac
Now connect your camera with computer
Launch the recovery software for Gopro, and click “scan”
Select media drive, an additional drive letter is assigned to the storage of your Gopro hero camera, besides your hard disk drive partitions
Now the “advanced scan” and “scan” buttons become active, in “advanced scan” you will be able to specify the file types the photo recovery software will be looking for, if you are not sure about what kind of files you have lost, just click “scan”
The scanning process may take a few minutes, the software will find all the recoverable videos, photos and audio files deleted from your Gopro camera and list them in the preview list
Select the files you want to have back
Recover deleted files from Gopro hero, and back it up somewhere on your local computer hard drive
The scanning process is completed but I still couldn’t find the video I accidentally deleted from my Gopro a while ago, what’s wrong?
The reason the photo recovery software fails to detect or deem the video/photo files irrecoverable could be overwritten, the delete action allows the operating system marks the memory space of the deleted photos as blank and reuse the space, if the camera has been heavily used for shooting videos after the deletion, chances are the old files will be corrupted due to overwriting on the memory. The jpeg software is able to repair files to an extent but the result is not guaranteed.
In the scanning result I am able to recognize the photos want to recover, but part of the photo is in grey color, is the photo recovery software able to repair my photo?
No, the photo recovery software doesn’t support file repair. However, Jpeg repair, as its name suggests, is specially designed to rescue recovered photos damaged, corrupted due to overwritten. It only supports jpeg file format, the software doesn’t work magic, it is functional to an extent, JPEG repair offers free trial that will evaluate the recoverability of a file, if the file’s perfectly presentable in JPEG repair’s evaluation, you can purchase the software and have your old photos back.
JPEG repair doesn’t work on mp4 videos captured by the Gopro camera.
