    Man everyone loves technology and all them new flashy phones, cameras camcorders and other shit like that, but to tell you the truth it's all bullshit. I preferred the old non digital cameras that had a limited amount of pictures you could take. I might be only saying this because I feel like shit now... but whatever... :( I've accidentally deleted a folder from my PC, I don't even remember when, and in the folder there were a few family videos that where recorded using a HD camera and I really feel like shit now because these got lost from my PC and they where the type of videos where in the future you would probably say "remember the good old days??" :( man technology sucks :noidea:

    I am sure that you can recover the lost files. I don't know how to but search for it. Nothing really deleted from a PC. There still somewhere here.

    Thanks for the heads up but I've tried quite a few programs and I've searched Google and nothing. :( The problem here is that these ain't just any old .avi or .mp4 files, these are AVCHD .MTS files. I've searched and no luck. :(

    the longer you use your computer the less chance of recovering the files since all windows does when you delete is remove the pointer to the file to allow for that space to be overwritten. Right after you delete the files they are still actually there and can be recovered but as you browse and save other files this space is written over decreasing the chance for recovery.

    try downloading:
    Code:
    http://www.officerecovery.com/freeundelete/
    
    copy it to a usb drive if possible and execute.

    Good Luck!

    Windows SUCKS. It's 2009 and you still have to REBOOT when certain software is updated. Does anyone know if the Mac does this? If not, I just may migrate over to a Mac because this reboot crap is so 1980's.

    I don't like digital cameras because I never ever empty my memory card and then I end up taking pictures over old ones, renders it kind of pointless. That whole no more film gotta put in a new roll is the only motivator for me to ever get my pictures developed.

    wowhaxor. get a DSLR that supports a SD chip up to 16 GB. Even shooting in fine JPEG quality without RAW, you can expect around 2000 shots. With high quality, you can get about 4000 shots, and normal quality, around 8000 shots.

    As for data recovery ShadeDream, I'd try some third party software. The file is still on your computer, unless you have filled your Hard drive up. When it 'deletes' a file or folder, it simply deletes the directory to where the information is located on the drive. That information will remain on the drive until it is written over, or 000 out. Hope this helps!

    I'm kind of a memory card picture hoarder. I can't delete a picture off my camera's memory card no matter how bad the picture is. It bothers me. I have like 40 memory cards laying around.

    Yeah man like Scarlet Pimp says, learn from it and back up your important shit. Implement it into a habit like once a month or whatever put everything important on a drive or at least discs.

    But yeah I have a love/hate relationship w/ technology. I was just talking w/ my girl the other day about way back when everyone had pagers and you would have to find a pay phone and all the 420, 411 and all the other l33t codes LOL. Now everyone's accessible at almost any time... takes all the fun out of it. Also there was nothing like developing a few rolls of film, getting them back and be like oh shit I didn't realize that was on here LOL.

    Try some data recovery program like Power data recovery. But dont forget to use the registered version. Or else, it wud be complete waste. And there are many more softwares available. Try a bit of GOogle, instead.!

    I hate Windows Vista, it's a piece of crap!


    I'm now happy and I love technology there is only one thing that I hate, this is Windows Vista. Why? Well I tried various recovery programs to finally find out that my video files where in the Windows Vista Public Picture folder (C:\Users\Public\Pictures). I'm happy because I've never deleted the files in the first place. Thanks to everyone for helping out. :D PS. I do have a backup drive and I always backup my files, it was just this once where I stored them only on my PC because I was a little lazy.
