retrieve deleted files off the camera's hard drive?

I deleted two files off the scan disc, while it was in the camera, that I thought I had copied to my pc, which apparently I hadn't. I tried a scan disc recovery but didn't have any luck with that. It was suggested that I retrieve the files from the camera's hard drive. Anyone know how to do this? I have WG 10

I really need those two videos. Thank you.

The camera doesn't have a hard drive. If the files can't be recovered from the card, you're most likely out of luck Sorry!

I have used Recuva https://www.piriform.com/recuva to get back files from an SD card that had been deleted. Not sure if it will work with video, and if anything else has been written to the card that will reduce the chance you can get your files back.

Use PhotoRec. This will recover images that Recuva won't find even with a deep scan. Windows, DOS, Linux, BSD, Solaris and Mac versions. It will recover items I had deleted over a year ago even though I've filled up the card one or two times since those were taken.

That may not be the most user friendly tool, but one of the more powerful one's I've seen in a while.
Free / Opensource is a big plus as well.

Here's the overview instruction on how to use
