You guys may meet this situation that your AVI video files on your hard disk get lost due to accidental deletion without keeping another copy of the AVI file, or because of the power interruption when the AVI file is still open, or virus or worm attack, natural disaster, software corruption, inner programming error, hardware error etc. Now you may need to find ways to recover them back, here I bring you the solution, let's continue.
Solution 1: Video Data Recovery Function on Your Devices
Losing your video file is really common either due to human errors or defects of the production itself. In order to avoid disaster of this kind, many manufacture put recovery mode in the device like digital camera or camcorder so that their customers can easily get back their lost data.
If your device has this setting, then you are so lucky to recover deleted videos through it. However, not all the digital camera has this function, so if you are not the lucky one, go to solution 2.
Solution 2: Video Data Recovery Software
We know that the hard drives or storage devices store photos or videos, and it is possible for us to recover photos, videos from them with the data recovery software as long as you haven’t put anything new into them.

As an easy-to-use recovery tool, uFlysoft can help you to recover your AVI files due to these common reasons which make AVI loss problem happens:
1. Human Error
One of the biggest causes of AVI files loss is human error. Human error can include accidentally formatting a hard drive or storage device, unknowingly deleting folders or folder and damage to the computer.
Certain varieties of viruses, Trojans and other varieties of malware can corrupt some type of computer system and cause data become either lost or unusable. If you connect your storage device with AVI inside to a computer, which is already infected with viruses, your AVI files may be lost because of the virus too.
3. Hardware Problem
A hardware problem, for instance a bad hard drive, may cause a significant amount of data loss. A hard disk drive that has a bad sector struggles to write data to that particular area. If data was over a sector that could no longer be accessed, it most likely is lost. The most typical type of hardware issue is an error while using a hard disk drive.
