CCTV’s are devices that continuously record events around it to help in security purposes and in prevention of crime. That means these cameras record a ton of videos every single day. So where are these recordings stored?
CCTV footages are usually stored in SD cards or external hard disks that are housed in a DVR. Although this is a good feature, there is a downside to it. The downside is that these local copies of CCTV files can get deleted or lost due to various reasons. The most common reasons for deletion of CCTV recordings are accidental deletion, virus infections or the storage device running of storage space.
If you happen to have experienced loss or deletion of CCTV footages, we are here to help you to recover them using a tool called Remo Recover Windows (Media). This tool restores all types of video files including MOV, AVI, 3GP, XVID, DIVX, MP4, M4V and other formats of videos from CCTV / Surveillance cameras.
How Remo Recover works?
Whenever a file is deleted from a storage device, only the address to the file is deleted but not the actual file itself. What a data recovery tool like Remo does is, it scans your device for deleted files using special algorithms and recovers them. This is possible only if the file is not overwritten, so it is extremely crucial that you don’t use the storage device after files have been deleted.
