What Causes GoPro Data Loss

Shooting videos with GoPro is surely a novel and enjoyable experience. It has a microSD, SDHC, and SDXC card slot, which supports cards between 32GB-256GB (Most SanDisk, Lexar, Samsung, Sony, and PNY memory cards are compatible) and a mini-USB port, which means the footage is saved on the memory card. However, it is possible for you to experience a GoPro data loss. There are many reasons that would lead to GoPro file deletion. Here are some common scenarios you might encounter that could potentially destroy valuable photos or videos you took with your GoPro.

🗑️Accidental Deletion

This would be the most common reason for GoPro data loss. Sometimes, users just turn off the auto-import function and tap "Delete" when GoPro asks if they want to maintain or delete files. Suddenly, all photos and videos in the GoPro have disappeared.

❌ Formatted SD Card

There's a possibility for users to inadvertently format the GoPro SD card when they are trying to transfer files between GoPro and the computer. Once the SD card is formatted, everything that exists in it will be wiped out, and professional recovery software is needed to unformat the SD card.

⛑️Device Damaged

Another possible reason is that your GoPro is badly destroyed. This could happen during the video shooting. The user may attach the GoPro to the drone to shoot video from high altitude, but the GoPro falls from the drone and falls to pieces. If the SD card is also broken, users might lose all their files and videos.

Back-Up GoPro Files for Data Protection

As you can see, it's very important and imperative to do regular backups to prevent the loss of data. There are various causes for data loss on GoPro, for example, system breakdown, virus, power outage, human deletion, SD card formatting, corruption, or SD card errors "NO SD" or "SD ERR"...

Losing precious shootings and recordings surely put us in an annoying and painful situation. Undoubtedly, backup is the only 100% way to prevent catastrophic data loss on a digital camera device.

Most GoPro users like to back up in those ways:

  1. [1] transfer files to a safe storage place, such as your computer or external hard drive. 
  2. [2] upload files to cloud storage.
  3. [3] use PLUS from GoPro, 5$ per month, using the GoPro app to upload directly.

No matter which way you prefer, regular backup is right.
