Can You Recover Deleted Videos from an SD Card?

The full name of the SD card is Secure Digital card. It is a proprietary non-volatile flash memory card format that is widely used in portable devices. For example, you can plug it into a digital camera to save captured videos and photos.

However, you might delete some videos on the SD card by mistake and want to get them back. Unlike a Windows PC, the SD card doesn’t have a recycle bin. When you delete a video, it is just permanently removed from the card.
