Recovering video off a formated SD card?

So, I'm stupid, and formatted an SD card and thus lost a crucial video file.

Been looking up ways to recover data, and have tried a few, not many to any degree of workable avail.

Anyone had a similar problem and found a workable solution? Thanks a lot.

Toggle the little switch to read-only because you don't want anything to overwrite the old data. 

TestDisk or PhotoRec, free options that work but might not recover anything due to the unknown state of your memory card. Might have to explore the interface but they have recovered some stuff I deleted on a flash drive before and used for a few months before trying to scan it.

Recuva is a free and great tool to do this job for you. But it only has Windows version.

Or go to to get the solution. This website introduces many tips.

You can try a data recovery soft like Easeus. Select formatted recovery from the options panel.
