Recovering deleted P2 footage
Hello there-
I did a quick search and found a couple threads on this subject. but I didn't want to resurrect a 3 year old thread.
I have a HPX-170 and was using a E series 64 gig P2 card.
The card was formatted entirely instead of erasing a few of the files that were meant to be deleted.
After the mistake was done, I told the camera operator not to do anything else with the card.
So it was not rewritten on.

I saw a few mentions of panasonic being able to help possibly recover these files ( I think I saw Barry Green mention this). Is that the best avenue to go? Would trying to find software to do it work as well?

Who at Panasonic should I contact for this problem?

Re: Recovering deleted P2 footage
I have absolutely no idea if this is any good, found it on google: MXF File Recovery, recover deleted/formatted/corrupted MXF files from Panasonic P2/Canon XF/Sony XDCAM? | Free Recovery Tools

Free is a little misleading, they want $39 for their mxf recovery program....at Panasonic there is a version of their media management software that appears to recover deleted files "from optical media" ; that's not saying from the P2 card itself, but it's free. Appears to be for Mac /Lion only. http://pro-av.panasonic.net/en/sales...cms/index.html

Re: Recovering deleted P2 footage

Please try this: Treasured
Treasured • Tool for Video Diagnostic and Repair

Treasured has a "DeepMediaScan" feature (menu Disk > Open damaged disk...) that maps all footage present on the card, be it deleted or not.
Then you can extract it and use a repair kit to recover the lost footage.
