Need to recover lost videos/pictues

Hi, I just uploaded over 200 pictures and videos onto my Mac into iPhoto. I've done this MANY times with no issues. It said the upload was successful and I chose the option to delete them from my GoPro. Once I selected "Last Import" it is showing pictuers from 2015, and my photos and videos are gone. Also, my last import was not in 2015. I'm very confused as to what happened, please help!

Re: Need to recover lost videos/pictues

@melissaj6 - One thing to check is those 2015 folders. If your camera had an incorrect date in it (or had lost power since the last time you updated the date in the camera), the camera can go back to a default date. I'm pretty sure I've seen the default go back to 1/1/2015 on my cameras before. If that's the case, iPhoto may be reading the data on those files and thinking the shots were actually taken then.

Re: Need to recover lost videos/pictues

Hi,

Were you able to recover? I'm facing a similar issue and have been facing this multiple times. I have purchased Stellar Photo Recovery as of now and it works just fine but I want to know if there's a heaper alternative for my other system,.
