Default Deleted a video on my verizon samsung S#

I see someone else asked this question but was never answered. I have the new samsung galaxy S3 from Verizon. I deleted a video accidentally today and I was wondering if there is anyway I could get it back at all. I have a mac book running the Lion OS and it doesnt seem to even recognize that my phone is plugged into it at all. I am NOT comoputer savvy or phone savvy. I would just like to know if there is anythign I can do to get this back. I have been on many sites looking for answers and apps to download, etc. But either I am an idiot (which is entirely Possible when it comes to these things) or I can't get my video back. Thanks for your help. THe sooner, the better.

Do you know if the video was in the phone's internal storage or a removable SD-card.

Because if it was in internal storage, think you might be hosed. I believe the S3 only has MTP mode when connecting it to a computer. AFAIK file undelete and recovery tools won't work with MTP mode, only USB disk mode. Plus I'm not sure how well Macs handle MTP mode anyway. If it was on the SD-card, you can put the it in a card-reader and run a tool like Photorec, which is a file undelete and recovery tool.

The most important thing at the moment, is not to store anything else, because that will overwrite the deleted video, and you'll never get it back.

OP, you could always try this app, though I don't know if you need to install it before deleting something in order for it to work
