There was a time when people carried a heavy web camera along with them on vacations to take the best pictures and videos. Today, like many other devices, the smartphone has replaced the camera too. 

Even as the smartphone has replaced the camera, micro sd cards and cloud storage have replaced the need to carry around bulky storage disks. But there are pitfalls that come with such convenience too. 

A couple of wrong clicks by a kid and all your data is gone forever (or so you might think). One mistake in setting the correct backup settings on your phone and you might not be backing up all your data automatically. 

Sure, there are ways to recover deleted videos from an android phone but many of the tools that help you do so require you to root your phone or use a computer. But you might not want to do so as rooting your phone comes with its own share of problems. 

This brings us to the burning question: How To Recover Deleted Videos From Android Phone?

We shall discuss this question under the following two sub heads:

1. How To Recover Deleted Videos From Android Phone Without Root?

It must be understood that sometimes it is very easy to recover deleted videos. For instance, if you use Google Photos or Google Drive and have auto sync enabled, then you might be able to find even deleted photos in the Trash folder. However, even this folder is cleaned every few days. Thus, in certain situations, it becomes necessary to use recovery tools. iMyFone D-Back is your best bet due to the ease of usage and multicity of features. 

Let us take a look at the step by step method to recover deleted videos from an android phone without root.

Step 1 – Download, Install and Launch iMyFone D-Back (Android) on your computer. You will see a screen like below.

Step 2 – Select the mode that applies to you and click on Start. Let us take the most commonly used one – “Recover Phone Data” as an example. 

Step 3 – On the next screen, you need to select your device and model number and click on “Next.”

Step 4 – At this stage, the software will start downloading the data package for your selected phone model. 

Step 5 – Once the download is complete, the screen will ask you to connect your Android phone to your computer. Here, you connect your phone to your PC with the USB cable. 

Step 6 – Once the device is connected properly, you will see the below screen (the recovery mode) where you will be asked to select the type of files that you wish to recover. Select and click on recover.

Step 7 – Post this, an analysis process will start, and on its completion, you will see a list of all the lost files on your Android phone. All you need to do is select the files that you want and click on “Recover”. 

All the recovered files will then be saved on to your computer and you can easily move them back to your phone or any other device of your choice.

If you wish to manually recover the deleted videos from your android phone without a computer, you will have to rely on the inherent feature of Google whereby all deleted photos or videos are first transferred to the Recycle Bin (or recently deleted) folder. All you need to do is go to the gallery → albums → recently deleted and tap and hold the particular video that you need to restore and click on restore and you are sorted. 

While tools like iMyFone D-Back Android Data Recovery are great at recovering deleted videos from Android phones, sometimes, even PC or Mac users wonder.

It must always be remembered that even files deleted from the Recycle Bin are not lost forever and can be recovered. Apart from iMyFone’s D-Back Hard Drive Recovery Expert, you can also consider restoring your PC to an earlier version of Windows. However, we must caution that this is a risky step and must be taken under expert supervision.

At the end of the day, some videos are memories to be cherished for a lifetime.
