Hi

We  use  windows 2003 servers /XP and GPO in Place and and there is no recycle on the desktop  as per the policy when the user logs in. We had connected a snap  video camera  to the PCS usb port . The videos uploaded and subsequently deleted themselves from the cameras . It is possible to recover  the video. Any sugessions appreciated

Thanks

I am afraid you are out of luck.  After the videos uploaded them selves and were deleted, if the cameras were powered off, the data is gone.

If the camera has an internal memory that you can see as a disk drive in Windows, perhaps you might have some chance. You can try with this free program Recuva (http://www.piriform.com/recuva) and check if you are lucky.

I have had great success with PCI recovery on situations like this: http://www.pcinspector.de/
Install this on a regular pc, plug the camera in, open the software, direct it to the camera, and you should be able to retrieve the video.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
