How to Do File Recovery from an SD Card Without Backup

I accidentally deleted around 50 GB of 4k footage without backing it up. Is it possible to recover these files? Do you have any SD memory card recovery software recommended for me?

Do not touch your SD memory card if you discover that the footage has been deleted. This means that you should not take any more images on the card and should delete it immediately. That is because the files in your SD card won't be replaced in the original spot until another one takes its place exactly where it was. So the footage files are not gone forever until you save the new file.

If you have backed up your data using Windows backup software, you can retrieve it quickly. Recovering these files on your SD card will be more difficult without a backup. 

As you mentioned in your question, using professional data recovery software is the most dependable way to recover permanently deleted files. And EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard is one of the best software options available, with a high success rate and ease of use.

Even inexperienced users can use the user-friendly application EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. If you have a backup, you can use this tool to recover files on your SD card. This file recovery tool can quickly scan for and recover your lost files, regardless of what caused the loss of your data—corrupted files, inadvertent formatting, or erroneous deletion.

If you can find those files in the Windows Recycle Bin and don't empty them, the procedure to recover them is easy. All you need to do is:

  • From the desktop or the Start menu, select the "Recycle Bin" icon.
  • Locate the deleted footage that you wish to recover. You can search for a specific file or locate the categorized files directly.
  • Right-click on the removed files. Then, click "Restore" to get them back.

If you have installed Windows 10, you can use Windows File Recovery, a Microsoft-owned data recovery application. It is, however, a little difficult to use because customers must understand various texts and commands that they may not be familiar with, which is considerably different from EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard's simple icons and menus.

Don't give up if you've lost data from an SD card! It is often feasible to restore lost files with the correct tools and approaches. Besides, always make backups of all essential files in the future! You'll have a backup to fall back on if you ever unintentionally delete or lose files from your SD card again.
