    Hi, can this photo recovery restore videos that are deleted two months ago? I tried the software, but it could not find the videos I want to recover from my GoPro Hero 4 camcorder.

      Hi, thank for using our software. If the program cannot find the videos you need, probably the videos are corrupted by other files, stated other way, the videos you deleted are overwritten by other files, and become unrecoverable. So, you cannot recover them anymore. I am sorry.

      Hi, Tony. Please make sure your device is correctly connected to the computer. If your computer cannot recognize your device, this software cannot find your device, either. You can try another USB cable instead.
