"I often use Sony Handycam HDR-XR200V to shoot AVCHD videos. Then I use the Sony Picture Browser to copy the data in the camcorder to PC. When the storage space of the camcorder is not enough, I will delete these files that have been transferred to the computer. Recently, I accidentally formatted the hard drive of my desktop computer. All the files on the computer disappeared. These video files are very important to me. Can I retrieve the lost AVCHD videos from my computer? Thanks in advance!"
If you have not used an AVCHD camcorder, you may not know what AVCHD is. AVCHD is short for Advanced Video Coding High Definition, which is a file-based format. It can be used by people for digital recording and playback of high-definition video. If you encounter accidental deletion, formatting, and system errors, you may lose AVCHD videos. To recover the missing video from the computer or external device, you can refer to the method in this user guide.
If the lost files have not been overwritten by other data on the PC, Mac, or other devices, there is still a possibility to restore them. RecoveryTool Data Recovery is one of the data recovery software, but its function is far more powerful than other file recovery tools.
