I accidentally deleted an entire folder of videos from my Nokia N810. To make matters worse, there is no “undo” and no recycle bin. So how did I recover the erased folder?
I downloaded Photorec for Windows, a free utility. It worked like a champ!
It found over a hundred deleted files from the flash card and saved them to my hard drive on my Vista machine. I am now copying those files back over to the flash card so I can watch the videos on my N810.
My only complaint is that the filenames are not preserved, so I don’t know which file is which.
But, this program is free, and it was my fault for accidentally deleting the folder, so I am still impressed and happy with PhotoRec. If you want to recover deleted files from an SD card, I recommend PhotoRec.
