  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. I tried and when I logged out and logged in as instructed, I got an error every time that PhotoRec was damaged and should be moved to trash. I tried downloading it numerous times and got the error message, though it worked when I downloaded it the first time. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING. I tried again using a different browser, but got the same message when I opened Photrec in my download folder, that it was damaged and needed to be moved to trash.
  3. YOU GOD
  4. Thank you so much, your a life saver!
  5. I appreciate this so much!
  6. Amazing, thank you!! :)
  7. Just my didn’t work for me. 😅 Nonetheless you explained everything so well and clearly that I was able to follow along easily so BIG THUMBS UP. 👍👍👍 I also tried Disk Drill Pro and ran into the same problem... a black screen for my video files, mais c'est la vie. Must be my SD card or something. 🤔 Anyways, thank you for sharing this. It may work for others! ☺️
  8. Hi, I accidentally deleted photos in the SD card before copying them to my Macbook. I tried your method but when I logged out to log in with root account, it asked me to close the terminal. By doing so, when I logged into root account and double-clicked on photorec, it said that "photorec is damaged and cannot be used. Please move it to Trash" . I could not get to the terminal like what you showed in the video. Is there any other way that I could try?

    I originally could be able to use the terminal without creating the root account. However, when I got into the terminal, I couldn't see all the disks I have, especially the SD card that I would like to recover the photos from.

    If you could help clear up some steps, I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you so much!
  9. whats the password?
  10. Thank you so much man! I am literally cryin AF. I thought all of my photos were lost. You deserved a “SUBSCRIBE”
  11. Great video, family vacation photos saved!!! Thank you so much!!!
  12. OH MY GOD!
    Bro you have no idea how much this helped me!! Really really appreciate it!!! Liked and subbed and really looking forward to your content 😊
  13. After the whole scan it only showed me the files that were currently on the SD card, not any of the deleted files. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  14. yo how do you get the videos back to your main account
  15. After a couple of minutes of scanning it tells me that it recovered 9 files. After 18 hours to finish the scan it stills recovered me 9 files lol... and it's 9 completely useless files... huh, guess I lost my photos and videos forever :(
  16. Hi I've tried this and I only got a few files.
    Would you know why I only got a few instead of all my files?
    I accidentally formatted my camera setting to PAL and it rebooted the camera and erased all my photos
    Is there any other way to get all my files?
  17. Unfortunately, this method didn’t work for me. I tried to recover files from Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery software, and it worked for me and recovered all deleted files from SD card.
  18. can you select to only recover the videos, not the pictures as well?
  19. This video skips a step. That's supposed to help the ones who didn't get the screen where you can enable root user. Why did you skip that part?
  20. You da man
