Unhappy Need Software To Recover Lost GoPro Hero Session Videos

I just recently returned from the Middle East with a group of At-Risk US Combat Veterans and members of our host country team accidentally formatted a card in my GoPro Hero Session as we were trying to backup once-in-a-lifetime footage on a laptop abroad.

I turned over the 65G card to a local camera shop and their video recovery technicians told me that they could see the videos, but because of the compression/formatting that is proprietary to GoPro they were unable to recover the video footage.

Does anyone have software that could potentially recover these video files?

Welcome to the Forums.

We all understand your frustration, I lost a HDD and as well files, I was able to recover with FREE programs found online, spyware are on some.

What are the best, no one knows I rather buy one from Sandisk, the sd card suppliers thnn an aftermarket.

DO not worry you got the card do not do a thing with it, keep it in a safe place till Dr. Z charlie pops in he'll direct you to his favorite found one.

I will keep looking to help out..

I use Recuva It's free and virus free. It's made from Piriform the same people that have Spybot Search and Destroy. It will be dependent on the files that are left. If they were formatted they may be recoverable. You just use Recuva to access the drive you have it installed on. Hope this helps you.

Cheers,
Charlie

Is this as good as the SanDisk recommended software? I ran the one they recommended and it shows the MP4s are still there.

I've already spent over $200 on other programs and at the camera shop. I really don't want to shell out another $60.

Thanks for the quick reply though!

The free version should work for you. If it doesn't then you are not out anything. The SanDisk software is good too. Your call, but I'd try the free Periform software.

Idea A Thought

Did the shop say they only tried one software and failed, or many and failed? That is the chance you will take. I do not recommend a software till I personally try it, FOR ME, so if Dr. Z says it works it works. now this is the topper

Ask @Dr. Z to do it for you?

1. both in the NA region, correct? Pa & Ak Check

2 Shipping is not a lot.

3. time

Or do you have any one else near with software for a try.
