Download a free demo version. Will recover all GoPro Hero, Hero2, Hero 3 Hero 4 and Hero 5 files.
Click on the above link to download and then run. The download program (about 5MB) is gpr_setup.exe and the main running program is GPR.EXE.
Both are digitally signed by CnW Recovery Developments Ltd. An icon will be added to your PC to let you run the program.
Please report back your results - to firstname.lastname@example.org
NB The program only reads the SD card, and not the camera directly
To update your software at any time, just download the demo again and install.
A small downside with regular updates is that anti-virus programs, such as Norton can detect that the program is new, and view it as a suspicious program. However, before the program is actually run it will display the digital signature of CnW Recovery Develeopments Ltd. This is correct
The GoPro Recovery (gpr.exe) demo program shows that recovery is possible
The demo will process the memory chip and display thumbnails of videos that will be recovered. The log can be viewed and by each file is a status. If marked as OK, the file will play correctly. The demo may save files, but these are not playable - they have extensions such as .demptmp rather than .mp4.
Beware, many programs say they can recover video files from memory chips, but very few actually can. The demo will display the file name, but the licenced version will; not produce playable files. GoPro Recovery will also produce playable files, as long as the log entry says ‘OK’
If the demo version is licenced, unfortunately it is necessary to rerun the process to recover the video files. A simple operation.
Please send any feed back from downloading the program to does it find any files, or perfect recovery - thanks!
