Is it Possible to Recover Deleted Videos from Sony Camcorder?

I accidentally deleted some videos from my Sony Handycam HDR-CX56X camcorder. I am using my 2GB Sony memory stick, and I know that all the videos taken with the Handycam are stored on it. I tried to take the stick out and connect it to my computer, but the deleted videos were not there. Is there any possibility to recover deleted videos from Sony Camcorder?

Yes, there is a possibility to recover deleted videos from Sony camcorders. When you delete videos or photos directly from your Sony camcorder, you're unable to restore them from the recycle bin. Unlike a computer device, there is no a recycle bin on your Sony Camcorder to store deleted files. That's why, once you deleted videos or photos on Sony camcorder, you thought you lost the files permanently.

However, deleted videos and photos of Sony camcorders are not completely deleted. The deleted videos and photos become invisible only. They are overwritten by new files. Therefore, you can recover deleted videos and photos from Sony camcorders like Sony Handycam, 3D camcorder and more with an effective video recovery tool.
