How to Recover Deleted Videos from Samsung Galaxy Ace
Do I have a chance to retrieve my videos?
I shot some memorable videos for my grandpa's 80th birthday with my Galaxy Ace. My brother deleted them by mistake when he was accessing them on my phone. I had still not backed them up. My mom also wished that I could find those videos back. Please give me your advice if you have any. Thanks a lot.
The first thing you need to do after losing data on your device is stop using your device for anything, like taking new photos/videos, texting messages, making calls, surfing online, etc. All this acitivities can generate new data, and the new data can overwrite the deleted data and make it unrecoverable. Therefore, to a large extend, the posibility of recovery depends on you.
Another thing you need to do next is searching a data recovery tool to perform the recovery ASAP. Still don't have an idea about the tool?
