Dash Cam Video Recovery: How to Recover Dash Cam Videos?


In daily life, you may always hear that someone’s dash cam videos are missing or deleted by mistake. Why the dash cam videos can get lost? Let’s first start from how a dash cam works and where the dash cam footage is stored?
How a Dash Cam Works?
A dash cam is mounted onto the windscreen and powered via the cigarette lighter cable or can be hardwired into the fuse box. It will automatically start recording when the ignition key is turned on. It works to record on a continuous loop with each clip filmed on a short 3-minute segment onto a micro SD card.
Where the Dash Cam Footage Is Stored?
Yes, you need to insert an SD card into the dash cam and then use it to store the videos captured by the dash cam. When the SD card is full, the dash cam will automatically loop and record over the oldest 3-minute video.
You can transfer the captured videos from the SD card to your computer, phone, and tablet to keep them permanently.
