Is it possible to recover videos from dash cam?

Under normal circumstances, the files lost in the dash cam are recoverable. As long as the data is not overwritten, the data in the dash cam’s memory card can be retrieved. But you need to get the help from data recovery  software.

What are the situations that one lost data from the dash cam?

– Formatted the memory card / SD card by mistake;
– Erroneous deletion due to improper operation which caused the video to be accidentally deleted;
– Powered off. When operating the SD card, the video was accidentally lost due to a sudden power failure in the middle;
– Cut error. In the process of cutting the video, the file got lost due to the operation error;

The dash cam data lost in the above situations can be recovered. We can use some professional data recovery software, such as RecoverXData.

Can the dash cam video be restored if it is overwritten?

If the original data for a lost video is overwritten, it’s hard to recover. The driving recorder uses a loop recording method. When the Memory card/ SD card is full, it will automatically overwrite the previous video. Once the video that has been overwritten, it’s already difficult to recover since the original data is already replaced with new ones. And if you record for a long time, maybe the video has been overwritten many times, and the chance of recovery is even slimmer.

Therefore, when we find that the data of the dash cam is lost, we must stop using the driving recorder immediately. And then take out the SD card as soon as possible, and use the data recovery software to recover videos from  dash cam.
