Hello everyone. I need to recover some deleted data from my memory card. Its a sandisk 64gb micro sd card which I use it on my Samsung Galaxy Note 3. I accidentally deleted some very important pictures and videos which are really valuable to me. For example, it was in a folder named bro which was inside the hidden folder .dave in my files. I deleted the bro folder which had about some 20gb. of pictures and videos. This incident was in january. But since april I stopped using the mem.card. The mem.card is nearly full with just 2gb free space left. I have used various softwares such as recuva, easeus, wondershare data recovery and others through my PC, but none of them were successful. I managed to recover other data from the memory card, but not what I had deleted from the hidden folder .dave. I still have other data which are in that hidden folder, ofcourse as I didnt delete them. ANd I didnt change the .dave folder name either. Please help me out guys if you can. I will be really greatful :'( Thanking you in advance.

If you only have 2GB left then you have overwritten i.e. beyond recovery, at least 18GB of the 20GB of data you are trying to recover.

Well @bremner my memory card always remains full actually. Even when I had those pics and videos, I had something like 3 or 4 gb of free space. I managed to recover videos older than those! But not the ones in that hidden folder :( And could you advise me where else can I seek for help online?

Well, there are some software which claim that they will recover the data. I think you should check those software but i have never used them.
