Hello, friends! No worry! When your videos, files, songs and other information are accidentally deleted from your Nikon digital camera SD card, they are not truly deleted. Instead, they are still stored on your camera memory card and can be rescued back with the help of camera memory card data recovery software before they are really erased or destroyed away by new photos or videos on the same memory card. That’s also why people are always suggested to extract the camera card out, stop using this memory card with deleted data loss troubles and go try file recovery software to recover deleted files from SD card for your digital camera.
Generally, the information stored on a digital camera memory card, like your SD card, will not be immediately erased or cleaned after accidentally delete, shift delete or even format. It is still reserved on the original camera memory card and only becomes invisible there so that this storage card could be available as soon as possible and help hold the newly coming data as quickly as possible. However, that doesn’t mean you are supposed to immediately take more photos or record more videos on your original camera SD card. Why? Even though these deleted files are not really destroyed right now, they are also really vulnerable and could be rewritten by any new file on the same SD card space in reality. Hence, if you do wish that you can rescue your deleted camera videos back as many as possible, immediately extract this memory card out from your Nikon camera and add no new photo, video and other file there. And then, merely go perform SD card deleted video recovery on this 32 GB memory card.
When something crucial is mistakenly deleted off from device memory card, applying memory card data recovery software to recover the lost data is really a wise method to go. However, that doesn’t mean any data recovery software searched online is proper for your deleted SD card video loss cases. Why? Some of these tools can only work under Windows OS or Mac OS. Some of these tools do support limited video formats. Some of them even do not help get the original card data back and also make things worse. Hence, that’s why people are suggested to download the related software from the safe and authorized sites or locations.
And in your case, you do have described that your selected one doesn’t work. Why do you think so? That software has not scanned and recovered all your desired SD card videos? Or your so-called "restored" videos or other files cannot be used or viewed on any computer or device.
