    Hi I copied video files directly from my Huawei from \GabHuawei\Internal storage\DCIM\Camera

    these files appeared to be MP4s and I assumed I could just move them like I used to with my Samsung.

    But these files are not readable on my Computer. The file sizes show as 42 Gig but the file size on disk shows as a few megs.

    I am either trying to use these files or to recover the files on my Phone.

    Its a Huawei P20.

    Ive tried recovering using fonelab which then wanted me to root it.

    I have tried to root it using Kingo root which is also failing-

    Please help

    So you chose move, rather than copy?
    Never, ever do this because if something messes up, the file is gone forever.
    If you copy and something goes wrong at least you still have the originals.
    Then you can delete once the copy is complete
