In this video I will be showing how to recover recently deleted files on your Mac, SD card, external hard drive, thumb drive or anything that you plug into your computer.

  1. I accidentally formatted a micro SD card that contained hours of family videos from the last 8 months. Got the videos back. THANKS A MILLION!!! Very straight forward tutorial.
  2. My computer froze when I finally recovered the photos so I had to force restart my computer. Now I’m doing this over, hopefully everything goes smoothly this time. sigh
  3. Hey.. anyone else getting this stuff about bad partitions ? I really can't get past this stage.
  5. the intro got me lol
  6. hey Dean Rojas, at 3:03, for me, it only shows Disk /dev/disk0 - 60 GN / 56 GiB (RO)
    and directly under this, the same line, but with "rdisk0" (with an r before "disk0") instead of "disk0"

    The thing is, I'd like to recover photos from my SD card which corrupted sometime when I used my smartphone, but it doesn't show this SD card (32 GB), despite the SD card being inserted as usual in my phone and the phone being connected via USB to my macbook air.

    I tried to recover photos from my SD card with a programme (called "Stellar Photo Recovery") before, but to no avail. The problem there was the same: not even Stellar Photo Recovery recognised my SD card, which is sooo weird.

    The weirdest thing is that I am able to take pictures with my phone and see them; it's just the older pictures that are inaccessible. wtf

    So can you or someone else please help me?
  7. thank you so much bro<3
  8. Thank you! <3
  9. Why when i double click photorec using root it said "no harddisk" found?
  10. got files but getting color wheel. won't open
  11. Hello
  13. do you have a solution if the sd wont show up in the computer, its like it does not exist at all. I try 3 different laptops and nothing show up. The memory card failed while it was into my camara. I dont know why, but I REALLY need to get those files back, PLS HELP.
  14. Thanks for sharing these informations ! Does it work for 4k video ?
  15. why do the mov file only play back black and makes static noise Dean Rojas did your mov file do the same?
  16. Hey Dean, thanks so much for the awesome tutorial- it worked perfectly except that when I try to open my recovered photos, they are really small and pixilated. Do you know any ways that I could restore them? Thanks!
  17. wasted a whole day doing this and all my video files are blank. Gutted!
  18. i'm having an issue getting the root user account to work, i followed the steps correctly but when i log out it doesn't show a root user account
  19. Anyone know if you can set the destination to an external hard drive? Because my computer's hard drive doesn't have enough space for the files.
  20. what happens if the card is accidently removed during the process? is there still a way to recover all the photos?
