I have collected a large number of movies on my Seagate external hard drive. It's very convenient to watch movies and share these files with my friends. This morning, my little sister abruptly plugged out my external hard drive while I was transferring a movie file to the computer. I couldn't find any files neither on the external hard drive nor the computer. Is there any reliable movie file recovery solution that can help me rescue my lost movie?

A lot of reasons can cause file loss issues, so it is to the movie files. Typically, when you delete a movie file on a computer hard drive or desktop, you can easily perform recycle bin recovery and bring the deleted movie back.
However, movies lost due to permanent deletion, formatting, external storage error, unfinished file transferring, and even virus attack can't be restored in normal ways. You'll need a professional data recovery tool or movie file recovery software for help. EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard can be very helpful to recover deleted movie files on your computer.
Step 1. Launch the EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and choose your external hard drive where the movies were lost or erased. To locate the missing videos or movies, click Scan.
Step 2. Select Videos in the left panel after the scan. Find the desired movies by going to the Lost or All section. Select the lost movies you want to see and click Preview.
Step 3. Choose the movie files you want to recover. To save them to another safe location on your computer or an external storage device, click Recover.
No matter when and how you get your files lost, stop using the external hard drive immediately. This will protect the lost files from being overwritten by new data. To avoid unnecessary file loss, you should create regular backups of valuable files to an external storage device and even the cloud.
Besides acquiring the skill to restore lost movies is not the best way to protect your movie files. We'd like to recommend you back up your movie files regularly and clean the virus or malware frequently to make sure that your valuable movies and videos are securely protected.
