    I accidentally deleted two of my videos and can't seem to get them back. Is there a program that someone could suggest to retrieve these videos? Also, is there any kind of recycle bin app that can be put on the eris?

    I connected my phone to a PC to move videos from the internal storage to an SD card and 18 videos I had on the phone mysteriously vanished during the process.

    I then disconnected the phone and searched using Astro but they were no where to be found. It's strange because I had 21 videos and 3 were kept but the rest disappeared.

    I am guessing they somehow were deleted on the phone, so I would be interested in knowing if there was indeed a recycle bin app or folder on the device for deleted items????

    I'm pretty sure that there are no apps like that. A solution may be just using Dropbox.

    Hi, if they were on a SD/mini put the card in a reader in your PC, there are programmes for computers to retieve lost video/pictures/files etc

    I am interested to know whether there is any folder where deleted items are
    stored and how deleted items are permanently deleted so that internal memory is not blocked.

    There is no deleted items folder or 'recycle bin' in Android. Once deleted, files are gone. As stated earlier, if the file(s) in question were on the SD card, which is formatted Fat32, you *may* be able to recover them using a PC-based file recovery utility as long as the sectors of the sd card have had no new data written to them.

    The app is for detecting deleted apps cuz Android SDK provide the API. However the OP is asking for specific video files, not app, so I don't think this app can help the OP.
