Recovering deleted data from a GoPro SD card

The wildly popular video camera GoPro is a significant leap forward in personal video recording. The video format it uses is also a significant leap forward. Mp4 is its identified format, but recoveries of GoPro video’s as not a straight forward find a header and a footer recovery.

GoPro has introduced the ability to put their Hi Def video in the same stream as their low def version. Some many frames for Hi Def and one for Low Def. What this does is severely complicate the process of finding the video’s intact. The header actually has a listing of the parts assigned to each portion of the video and aids in the recovery if the data is present. This requires the video files to be individually rebuilt after their deletion.
