How to Recover Deleted M4V Files

I transferred a few M4V files I edited on my Android to my Mac to see how they looked on the computer. But when the transferring process was finished, I found that several videos were gone, and the rest of them were corrupted. I guess there is something wrong with the transfer tool. Is there any method to recover deleted M4V files and repair the rest?

Sure, there is a way to recover deleted M4V files. M4V is a less-known video format than MP4, though they are similar. The reason for its obscurity is that only authorized Apple devices and software like Apple devices such as iPhone, Mac, iPod, iTunes, and QuickTime can play M4V files. 

If you are using an iPhone, I recommend getting your files back through iCloud. But since you are using Android, I guess you have no backup of the original files. So, it is best advised to recover deleted M4V files using data recovery designed for Mac, like EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro

You can download EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro and recover deleted M4V files like this:

Step 1. Select the disk location where your lost M4V videos were stored before. Click the "Search for lost files" button to start the scanning.

Step 2. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac will immediately scan the selected location and display the results.

Step 3. If you find your lost videos, you can click them to preview them. Then, you can click the "Recover" button to get them back.

Other than recovering permanently deleted video files on Mac, you can also use this tool to repair your corrupted files on Mac. Go to "Video Repair," add the corrupted videos, and click "Repair." Like the video recovery we just performed, you can preview the videos before saving them. Download and try it now if you are troubled by the same question.

Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard to recover deleted or lost files easily and quickly.
