I transferred all the files to my computer, then sorted the ones I want to keep, writing down the file names. In June) Then I deleted the superfluous clips - from both the camera and the computer. Yesterday when I was looking for two of them I realised I had deleted two that I need. I cleared my recycle bin on my computer a month ago so I can't retrieve them from there either.
If I recall correctly, they were on the camera memory initially and I transferred them to the card to download them.
Richard, so is there no way of scanning the camera to recover it, rather than the computer?
GIve me a few minutes while I find the download cables..... Will it also work if I eject the memory card and insert that into my computer card slot?
HI, It is scanning now....15 minutes left!
I scanned the camera (whilst plugged in to the computer) It said it is scanning 235 files so it looked hopeful, but then came up with zero at the end. Now I am scanning the Recycle bin....10 minutes to go
I have done a deep scan of my recycle bin too, and it came up with one movie file only, (one I don't recognise) - yet it says it was scanning over 24, 000 files.
Do you have any other tips? Don't you have Canon camera-specific recovery software?
Thank you Richard - I guess we tried all we could
