I accidentally deleted the video file, is there any way I can restore it?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was clicking on the trash can icon in the iFun Screen Recorder to erase the useless videos.

Then I accidentally erased the video that I shouldn't erase.

I can't see the video that I accidentally deleted in the trash folder.

Is there any way to restore the video file that I deleted using iFun Screen Recorder?

If you know the Video Name, you could try using the Undelete function, in Advanced Systemcare Toolbox.

In fact, I've already tried it.

However, when I looked at the scan results, I could see what I put and delete in the trash folder, but I didn't see the video I deleted by clicking the Delete button in the program.

Is the video permanently erased by clicking the delete button on the iFun Screen Recorder?

Undelete should find it even if it has been deleted from the trash bin (recycle bin).

Are you sure you know the name of the video.

The only other reason you may not be able to undelete it, is if it has already been overwritten. That will depend on how much

writing to disk you have done since you deleted the file, and how much free space you have on your disc.

If it is a very important file then you could try specialised software such as MiniTool Power Data Recovery.

I think erasing a video file in the iFun Screen Recorder is erasing it without going through the trash bin(Like, using shift+delete).

The reason I think so is that I have never written anything on the drive that the file was on since I deleted it.

I'll try the one you recommended first, and if even the program can't find it, I'll just give up...

I mean, I didn't delete the file by putting it in the Trash bin. I accidentally erased it by pressing the iFun Screen Recorder's delete button. And since then, I haven't done anything on the drive. No matter how hard I think about it, it seems to erase files without going through Recycle Bin.

Just so you understand...... it does not matter whether it goes through the trash bin or not.

Unless a file is deleted using a file shredder, then it is still retrievable. Deleted files are still on the drive, and will remain so

until they are overwritten. I have recovered files which had been deleted for years.

Now I think using the program's delete button is like using a file shredder, maybe. When I saw the scan results, I couldn't see only the ones that I deleted with that program! Ha ha. Well... Maybe just giving up is saving my time. I've already been up all night with this...lol

Anyway, I really appreciate your effort to help.

You are welcome.

If Iobit programs are shredding files when deleting, instead of just sending them to the recycle bin, then they should

make that clear in their programs, with a warning.
