Using Samsung Galaxy ACE s5830 Android 2.3.6

Well I made a mistake. I was recording an important video with my smartphone (the default video recorder) and then I put the cellphone close to my chest. I noticed later that the video stopped but i thought it was saved. seems like somehow the jacket touched a cancel button (not delete) and then ok. odd but it happened. now i dont find the video. My question is if anyone knows if i have any chance to recover the video from a place in the SD memory, probaly using an forensic tool to recover deleted files. I mean if the data was being created somewhere in a temp file until its done, It could be recovered but as this is android i dont have idea. The video was important so I'll try anything. NOTE: checking in windows, it shows the modification date in the folder DCIM\Camera, corresponding to the moment i was recording. So at least there was access to that specific folder.



If the video is recorded, then it will be saved to your phone. But for your case, what I guess is that the video is not recorded.


Check out a [linux] tool called foremost - that ought to do it.
