1. Recover from "Recently Deleted" Folder

When you delete a video on the iPad, it is not permanently erased from your device practically as the new feature "Recently Deleted" was added since iOS 8. Similar to Trash on Mac, this folder is used to recycle those files users delete for about 30 days. They will be removed by the system automatically after the 30-day-period and that's why you are not able to find deleted videos here. To recover them from "Recently Deleted" Folder, simply follow the steps below.

Step 1. Open Photos app on the iPad.

Step 2. Click on the Albums, you'll find a Trash icon next to the Screenshot folder, tap on it.

Step 3:Select the videos and tap Recover, those videos will be back to your Camera Roll again.

If you are lucky to find them there, just choose the items you need and then click on the "Recover" button. Then you'll be able to find these photos back on your iPad.
