How to Recover Deleted Videos from Your iPod Touch

Recover iPod Touch videos with Enigma Recovery software

Much more than a simple personal music player, the iPod Touch can also be used to record and store videos on your device. From 1st birthday parties to fun times with your friends, the videos on your iPod Touch capture some of the most important moments in your life.

If you have accidentally deleted videos from your iPod Touch or an OS update has gone horribly wrong, causing data loss, the first place you can check to see if these can be recovered, is the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder, which keeps deleted photos and videos for up to 30 days (unless you delete them manually from this folder as well).

If you’ve accidentally pressed the wrong button and lost an important video, then this is a great, quick option to recover it.

If however, you have deleted videos from the ‘Recently Deleted Folder’ or the 30 day period has lapsed and they are no longer in the folder, then you can turn to Enigma Recovery software. This innovative solution will enable you to recover deleted videos from an iCloud or iTunes backup file, made before you deleted the videos from your device.

The software is completely secure, and will not cause any damage to your iPod Touch or to your data. It is a great solution if you’re worried that your important videos are gone forever. Choose from the tutorials below to recover your deleted videos now!

How to Recover Videos From Your iPod Touch

It’s happened to the best of us – an accidental tap on the wrong button or our devices failing during an update – and all of a sudden you have lost very important data. Of all of the functionality offered by the iPod Touch, losing or accidentally deleting videos is one of the most upsetting, as they are often irreplaceable captures of a moment, and may be the only copy in existence.

As luck would have it, there are some options available if you have deleted important videos from your iPod Touch. Firstly, you should check the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder on your iPod Touch. Added by default to all devices on iOS 8 or higher, and available to older devices which can upgrade to iOS 8 or higher, the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder is a great quick fix for those of us who instantly realise that we have deleted the wrong video and need to recover it.

Looking through the ‘Recently Deleted’ folder, you can find videos which have been deleted in the last 30 days. You can also use Enigma Recovery software to find and view these deleted videos.

If however, you have realised too late that a precious video is gone, or a device malfunction has wiped all of the data on your iPod Touch, there are other options for recovery, using either an iCloud or iTunes backup file and Enigma Recovery software.
