Solved I can't find my compressed dash camera files on my computer

Specs: Windows 10, Intel Premium p6100 2.GHz
I sent some files to the "compressed folder" and now I can't find or play what I think might be the correct files. I opened some video files from a recent car accident and sent them from my Micro SD(pulled from my dash camera) card to the compressed folder. Then I wasn't able to find them (I think) when, I try to play these files I get the error "This file isn't playable. That might be because the file type is unsupported, the file extension is incorrect, or the file is corrupt.0xc00d36c4” The files that I think are my missing files I have aren't playing, are in formats "greatsaving" "MPEG-4 Movie (.MP4)”, some of the videos that I didn't compress are playing in the format of "MPEG-4 Movie (.MP4)" I have tried various types of Video Players: Allplayer,AVL, KD player, Windows Media Player, QuickTime. I did use a free recovery software online(I forgot the name and I already deleted the program) that I used recovered my files from the Micro SD card ,after I could find them looking everywhere on my computer. Please help I need to show the officer the video asap.

It's all a bit difficult to follow.

"to the compressed folder"
There's not just one there is as many as you create. You should be able to play them either inside or outside the compressed folder but it sound as if you don't know its name. It might have taken the name of one of the folders inside if you didn't give it one. If you can remember any names search for them.

Are they not still also on the SD card? You are always better to "copy" rather than "move or cut" files if they are important.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

If you aren't able to find them, then how did you try to play them.

If you highlighted a bunch of files then right clicked and sent them to the compressed folder then they are most likely still on your SD card in a file with a .zip extention

I paid for a a Data Recovery Software and found the files but,It won't let me play the files,I think the files are corrupted or something. I think one of the free data recovery softwares, I downloaded yesterday corrupted my files.

VLC Player,Quicktime,AllPlayer: didn't work, VanTrue(The Dash Cam Company) player won't play the files I recovered. Realplayer said the the folder that holds the files I need are corrupted.

Copying them is a very smart idea.
