With a powerful iPhone in our hand, we are always ready to record precious moments of our lives. The Apple phones are equipped with powerful camera sensors, which allow the users to record beautiful videos.

However, due to unfortunate circumstances, our videos get deleted from the iPhone and we are left to search various ways of recovering the lost files. The reasons for the deletion can be corrupt software or memory, accidental deletion, virus attack, etc.

Once the videos get deleted from the iPhone, you take new videos and save in the same memory. In this case, the newer videos or files are overwritten and get saved in the iPhone.

Can I Recover Overwritten Video Files?

Now, the important part is to recover overwritten video files from the iPhone. The chances of recovering the lost data depend on whether you have a backup or not. If you have accidentally deleted the video, Apple retains the deleted videos in the Recently Deleted album, from where you can restore the deleted videos. However, if the deleted videos are more than 30 days old, you can only rely on the backups.

So this is the most important question that arises after your videos have accidentally got deleted. When the videos are overwritten, there is no such recovery tool that can recover overwritten video files directly from the devices. If your videos got deleted due to some reason, then you can get only on iTunes or iCloud backup.

It has to be noted that if you have lost the data and want to recover it, you should immediately stop using your device. This is because any new data written into your device might overwrite your lost data and make them unrecoverable.
