Hello, I am curious if there is a way to recover a deleted video on my Samsung Galaxy S3?  I would prefer a free software if possible, but if only commercial software to restore these files is available that might be helpful too.

Thanks for any help,

Two free programs that are great for data recovery are photorec (part of testdisk) and Recuva. You would need to install the program(s) to your computer and connect your phone to the computer; on your phone enable usb file share ( your computer needs to recognize the phones external drives) launch the program and instruct it to search your phones external drives. Photorec is very powerful, but the interface is not very user friendly, Recuva is easy to use, pretty much point and click.
