Where do I go to get my restored deleted sd files?

by Dquestion / September 19, 2013 2:58 AM PDT

So I uploaded two video files to my computer and a screen usually pops up with the files but nothing happened so I checked my SD card but it didn't have anything on it so I went through and searched my documents, pictures, downloads, and favorites. I found nothing there so since I marked "automatic delete when uploaded" I used testdisk to restore them it worked but I don't know where to find them. What folder would I find restored files in? Also where did my videos go if they're not on my card where are they on my computer. Like what folder? Please help I need these videos.

So little detail here.

Is this some Apple, Windows PC, or Linux tablet?

You should also format the card in the camera when it's new so you don't repeat what others have discovered later.

That's why I don't have it delete

when I copy the pictures and videos from the SD card. In case something goes wrong. Once I know I got all the pictures copied to my computer then I delete my sd card by formating it in the camera. You have to pay attention or tell it what to name the files and where to put them on your computer. You can search the whole hard drive for all files ending in .jpg or whatever your videos end in.
