Specs: Windows XP
Hey guys, I have recently taken some videos with a friend. I had them on my computer and I was almost done with editing them and when i went to put a couple more videos in my drive, a message said there was no more space. So i deleted the videos and removed them from the recycle bin. Now i realize it was a big mistake to delete those videos. Can i get those videos back and if so how do i do it?

"...i went to put a couple more videos in my drive, a message said there was no more space..."

... as you were running out of space, perhaps making another file which would overwrite the disc area recovering files "overwritten" may be a problem

The problem is that when i bring my editing software up to edit my videos,all my videos i was editing are gone because i accidentally deleted them. I also removed everything from my recycle bin to get more space on my c drive to store more videos.I just need to get the videos i deleted back so i can keep working on them.

You require a data recovery software.

The longer you use your computer the more likely recovery will not be successful since those clusters that contain the video data are marked as available.

Always keep two copies. Always.

Okay thanks, I used a recovery program and recovered them. But now when i try to play them like say in Windows Media Player, a message says that it can not play this video. Also in my editing software a message says it is unable to open this video because it can not read it. Are my videos corrupted?
