“I formatted my P2 card and shot a new video clip on the P2 card. I then noticed that I didn’t copy the previous clip to my hard drive. I’m wondering if there is a solution to recovering the previous clip? Or is there a Panasonic centre that recovers deleted clips on P2 cards?”
“We were using the p2 gennie and found out that the gennie doesn’t tell you that your hard drive is full- so a card that was being copied didn’t really copy and I formatted the card, but didn’t record any new information on them. Is there a way to recover this information- like you would a hard drive or flash card?”
You may have lost your vital photos, videos(.mxf) and audio files from a Panasonic P2 Card due to any reason like accidental deletion; pressing the reformat button in camera; various reasons of damage like low battery power, turning off on writing/reading, etc. As a matter of fact, the files are not completely erased from the P2 Card on the deletion or formatting. Only files names and properties are erased, the file content is still hanging around and recoverable. All you need is to get a P2 Card recovery tool, which can help to retrieve all the contents. UFUSoft P2 Card Data Recovery for Mac (compatible with Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, 10.8(Mountain Lion), 10.7, 10.6, or 10.5) or UFUSoft P2 Card recovery software (compatible with Windows 8/7/Vista/XP), is one of that. Before acting, keep in mind that less operation on the Panasonic P2 Card gives you higher chances to get lost files back.
Step 1: Connect Panasonic P2 Card to Computer
Connect your P2 card to computer through a card reader or directly hook up your Panasonic camera to computer by USB cable. Your P2 card should appear as a removable hard drive on computer after that.
Step 2: Initiate the Panasonic P2 Card Data Recovery Software
Download a free version of this recovery program. Then install and launch it. From the drive list, select the P2 card and click “Start Scan” to search for lost data.
Step 3: Recover Photos, Videos and Audios from P2 Card
When the scanning process completes, all the files found for you will be listed in the scan result panel. Preview to check which ones you want to get back, and then hit “Recover” to recovery lost P2 Card data to your Mac or Windows computer.
