I accidentally deleted pictures and videos from my Sanyo XACTI VPC-CG20 HD camcorder.  Is there a way to get them back.  It was a few months ago, but I haven't used it since.

Please help!

I'm not sure they can be recovered, but in case they are recoverable, I would STRONGLY advise not using the camcorder anymore to prevent overwriting anything.  Hopefully another expert can provide some help with utilities that can see and restore what might still be on the camera.

I have had very good success using an application named GetDataBack to recover files from various types of attached drives. You could try it. It has the option of downloading and trying for free.  if it finds the files and shows them as recoverable, you then by a license and can recover and save the files.  If the files are not recoverable, there is no need to buy a license.

A couple more to look at. These are free, and PhotoRec was originally made for recovering pics:

Assuming you are using a SD card in the camera, you might consider using a card reader instead of the camera for the recovery.
Just a thought.

Xacti use SD flash mem. (& compressed format?) so via a SD-USB adapter or SD card reader (use USB 2.0 or faster) & give it a try.

Unfortunately AVI, JPEG or any picture / video data if stored in a compressed format is usually not 100% recoverable via any recovery software (other uncompressed data can be recovered)

Do try the suggested recovery softwares but I expect the pictures / video recovered (if any?) to be corrupt & at best missing pixels.

Goodluck is needed.
