Why Do You Lose Videos (4 Common Reasons)

Videos are some people's precious possessions. It can be very frustrating if you lose important ones. Usually, you lose movies or videos due to the following reasons.

  • You accidentally delete the videos by pressing "Delete" or "Shift + Delete".
  • You format the drive because it asks you to. But you don't have a backup of the drive.
  • Your antivirus software checks out some viruses, automatically deleting the videos.
  • You empty the recycle bin after deleting the videos and other reasons...

It can be devastating if the deleted video is your only copy. The good news is that the deleted video can be recovered. Here are three ways to recover deleted videos from a PC. If you didn't empty your Recycle Bin, you can restore deleted videos from your PC's Recycle Bin. If the videos are permanently deleted, recover them with video recovery software or from backup files. 

How to Restore Deleted Videos from Recycle Bin on Your PC

If you delete your videos, your videos will be put into the recycle bin. If you haven't emptied your Recycle Bin, you can restore deleted videos from it.

Step 1. Go to the Recycle Bin. Check if the deleted video is still there. If you don't know the name or type, look for file types such as MXF, RM, AVI, WMV, MOV, and MPEG.

Step 2. Select the video and click "Restore" to recover the videos.
