The steps involved in finding the default location in an Android phone are:

  • 2. Find "File Manager" and tap on it.
  • 3. Under "Categories" you will find "Videos." Tap on it and you will see all the video files on your Android device.

Note that the location of stored videos might not be the same on all Android devices because of the different UI (User Interfaces) of different brands. The most common way to find stored videos is mentioned above but for a more comprehensive way, you should consider the User Manual of your Android device.

How to Recover Deleted Videos on Recently Deleted Folder?

A common scenario is that people have many videos present on their phones but some of them, while opening the videos, accidentally press delete and the video is moved to the Recently Deleted folder or Bin. It remains there for 30 days. After that, it is permanently deleted and you can't recover it.

For recovering the video from the Recently Deleted folder, you should go to this folder and select the video you want to recover. Then tap on Recover/ Restore to get back the video to its original location. Note that you can avail of this facility only when "Back up and sync is on" on your Android phone. Also, it shouldn't be older than 30 days.
