“When importing my videos and photos from the go pro 4 hero silver, all the files were deleted from the sd card. Sadly enough, the files were not imported at all. They were supposed to go to an external HD, but that didn’t work. Nonetheless, the go pro app decided to delete the files even though they weren’t imported. Is there any way I can fix this?”
As of October 2014, GoPro sells three fixed-lens cameras, two without viewfinders and one including a touchscreen viewfinder. And GoPro Hero series including GoPro Hero, Hero2, Hero3, Hero3+, Hero4, Hero5, etc are the most popular cameras for shooing high-definition videos when play surfing, jet-skiing, water skiing, motorsports, etc. However, when accidental deletion, corruption, system crush, power failure, formatting happens or other reasons, it is annoying and painful.
