Recovering deleted files from SD card

Attended my grandson's wedding the other day and took over 200 photos and videos using Canon G15. I hasten to add I was not the official photographer. When we got back was going to upload to Ipad but accidentally deleted the files! Using a recovery programme managed to retrieve the photos but not the videos. The message I got was that the videos were corrupted. Does any one know of a specialist recovery programme? If so would be grateful for details, as this is leading to strained relations with"her indoors"! Thanks

Sandisk Recue Pro recovers video and is probably one of the better pieces of software. It's not free but its not a fortune and you can try before you buy. Download and run it and it will give you a preview of what it is capable of rescuing before you spend your money.

REmo recover did a very good job for me, well priced and very efficient for any sort of file, really good on twirled or stubborn CFs and external and internal HD. Has saved my guts many times in the business or for the pics, we often get power cuts and that does all sort of things

Annettep - the problem is that the video files are corrupted, I dont know if corrupted files can be recovered.

The vid files may not be corrupted as it could be that the recovery software that you are using is unable to read them, or recover them, and displays a "corrupted" message.
I used to have the same situation as you. But do not be worried, you can still find your photos back by using some data recovery software. I used Data Recovery for Mac and recovered my lost photos successfully. Hope that it may help you !
