I think there is no way to get back the deleted files, if you dont have a copy of it!

There are some file recovery apps that eagle328 has suggested that have helped me recover deleted files from my sd card. Might want to ask him.

Re: how to restore delete files from my sd card...

1.  Have you added any information to the SD card since you deleted the files you want back?


2.  Do you have an SD card reader on your computer?


If the answer to the first question is no (you have NOT added any information to the card), and if the answer to the second question is yes, then there's a good chance you can restore the files, but you'll need a file recovery application to do it.


When you delete a file, you're telling the system to mark the space on the storage media as available for new files...it doesn't actually remove the old data.  However, when you add new files, it overwrites the data from the old files.  So, if you have not yet added anything new, there's a good chance that a decent file recovery utility can restore them.


To do that, you'll need an SD card reader on your computer that has an adapter for the micro size in the phone.  If your computer did not come equipped with one, they're fairly inexpensive to buy.


Next, you'll need a file recovery utility.  You can try searching the Download section of sites like CNET.  Read the Editor reviews and the User reviews (they don't always agree).  You'll find free/evaluation versions of software that may find the data but not recover it until you pay; bare bones software versions that may or may not do what you need done...


Unfortunately, I've never used software like this, so I can't make a recommendation.  Just be sure the one you finally decide upon (if you go this route) can scan more than just the computer's hard drive.

Not unless you installed it to your SD card.

 You gotta think happy thoughts!


Now, click your heels together three times and say, "the data is still there; the data is still there; the data is still there."


Oh, to the OP:  If all you do is hook the phone up to your computer, you'll be able to back up your files.  I prefer something automatic like a backup program, but whatever choice you make, stick to it and you'll be fine.

Re: how to restore delete files from my sd card...

UndeletedPlus software might work for you!


1. Download Undelete Plus from Snapfiles.


2. Extract and run Undelete Plus. Choose the drive letter for your SD card and click "Start Scan."


3. Select the deleted files you wish to restore from the SD card and click "Start Undelete."


4.Close Undelete Plus and navigate to My Computer to open up the SD card drive letter folder.


5. Verify that the deleted files have been recovered.





Tips & Warning 



  • After accidentally deleting files from a memory card, do not attempt to copy additional files onto the card before attempting file recovery as this will overwrite the files and make them much more difficult if not impossible to recover.
