How to Recover Deleted Photo & Video from Nokia Lumia

Can I recover deleted pictures from Nokia Lumia 800?

I deleted some pictures and movies of my Nokia Lumia 800 
accedentially . I haven't found any "trash" or something like that on my Lumia 800. Can anyone help me to recover them? 

There isn't the same trash as on your computer, where your deleted files will be saved at first. Usually, media files including photos, music and videos are stored on the memory card inside your Lumia phone. When you deleted those files, they'll be marked as useless and become invisible. However, it doesn't mean that they're gone forever. In other words, only the place that they occupied has been marked as blank and available for new files. You still have a good chance to recover deleted photos, videos from Nokia Lumia phone before they've been overwritten by new files.

Therefore, it's very important to protect your phone or the memory card from being overwritten, or the Nokia Lumia recovery will be difficult.

If there is a memory card in your Lumia 710, you can use Wondershare Photo Recovery to help you. Otherwise I'm sorry but this program can not help you then.
I have lumia 710, I accidently restored my old software ,, so that my existing files and softwares are deleted.. Pls help me to get my new software.
This won't work on Lumia phones where the memory is built in, rather than on an accessible memory card. If I find another solution, I will post here. If anyone else has already found another solution, please post here too.
How about take that memory card out and insert it into a card reader then connect it with your computer?

Amit, you can download a trial version of Wondershare Photo Recovery to scan your Lumia 710 or SD card first. If you have not used the device or the SD card, you can possibly retrieve photos and videos from Lumia 710.
