Help, how to re-create LRV files?

Stupid me deleted the lrv files after moving all the stuff off my hero5. Now i cannot use the mp4 in the quik app without the LRV files.
How can I re-create the LRV from the MP4?

Any ideas?

Hi @dreepa

 

If you're using Windows you can use third party data recovery apps such as Recuva by Piriform. 

Don't know if Mac has a data recovery tool as well. 

 

By the way GoPro is not affiliated with Recuva/Piriform.

The chance of recovering your file is not 100% guaranteed.

Since the lrv is just a lower resolution of the main mp4, isnt there a way to just re-generate it?

Hi @dreepa

 

There might be a way but it might need a lot of effort to recreate that rather than recovering them. 

 

I'll check if I can recreate LRV file and will share it here.
