Where are the deleted videos stored on Android?
Before we go to the detailed methods on how to restore the videos, you may want to know where the deleted videos stored on Android. Can we get back the videos on the trash bin just like PC?
Well, there is no such thing as a recycle bin on an Android phone. In fact, the deleted videos are storing on their original place in a form that is invisible and inaccessible. Unless they are covered by new data, there is still a chance to recover them through the recovery tool. If the deleted video was stored on the internal memory card, then you should find a recovery tool to get your video back through the internal storage of your phone.
