How to recover the earliest written m2ts file ?

#1 Post by duddule »

I unexpectedly formatted a SDHC card that was containing some AVCHD videos file (format .m2ts) :? I formatted it using my sony cam function.

Since this format, I didn't use my cam, so no new data was written on the card.

But, photorec doesn't see these files when it performs a scan. What's strong ? :cry: I activated m2ts in search option.

Help me to recover video of my little daughter on her bike for the first time ...

If you enable both m2ts and ts in FileOpts, do you get better results ?
