How to Retrieve a Deleted MySpace Video


In addition to allowing you to connect with friends, chat and post your thoughts in blogs, MySpace lets you express yourself in videos. When you open a Myspace account, you’re immediately given your own video channel, which is accessible through the homepage. From there, you upload your favorite videos and leave them out in the open for friends to view and comment on. If something goes wrong and the videos are accidentally deleted, you'll need to take some time to retrieve them.

  • Search through videos at other video-sharing sites. Even if you neglected to upload the videos onto other sharing sites, one of your friends or someone else may have put the video there. If it is, you can upload the link on the page to put the video back on your MySpace account.

  • Look through the MySpace pages of your friends, paying attention to the Video Channel. You may find that your friends uploaded their own copies of the video, especially if it’s one that featured them. While yours might be gone, their copy should still be intact.

  • Check the Comment section of your MySpace friends, looking for friends who commented on your videos in the past. Follow the link provided, which takes you to the page where they commented. If Myspace still has the video on its server, you can still find the deleted video.

  • Browse the video files on your home computer or the computer you used to upload the video to MySpace. Check all files carefully, looking for any sign of the video, including your recycling bin. In the future, save a copy of all uploaded videos to your computer.

  • Use a disc-recovery program if you lost videos as a result of a computer crash. The program searches all files on your computer, including hidden files and folders that you thought were lost on the hard drive. This will only help if you uploaded a personal video or saved a copy of the video to your computer.
