Deleted files

Hi I was trying to upload my GoPro photos and videos to iPhone but I couldn’t see them when I initially connected to my GoPro WiFi. I have old photos and videos from there so I decided to clean it up but when I did that, the videos and photos on my GoPro also got deleted. iPhone has 28 days recovery period. Is there a way to retrieve those files somewhere?

Re: Deleted files

@carmena8258, just to clarify, did you delete the files that are saved directly in your SD card (while the camera is connected to the GoPro App)? Or did you download the files to the GoPro App first, then deleted them in the app?
 

Additionally, are you still able to view your files directly through your GoPro camera?

Re: Deleted files

I tried to download the files but didn’t see them on my App. SD card was still in GoPro. So I deleted some old files. After doing so I noticed that it also most likely deleted the new ones because the video & photo counter on my camera changed. Videos changed from 160 to 3 & photo changed to 0. Is it possible to still have them on SD? Or that’s deleted too?

Re: Deleted files

Hi @carmena8258

 

It seems that you were deleting from the camera roll rather than the MEDIA saved on the app.

 

Thanks!
