I copied the media using the xd software. I somehow lost some of my footage. I think it is because I renamed a few of the folders. How do I get the footage back. I already deleted it off the media card.
The proper workflow is ClipBrowser with CRC on to a hard drive. That gives you BPAV master off the cards.
The next step depends on whether you're Windows or Mac and what NLE you use.
ClipBrowser can wrap to MXF
XDCAM Transfer wraps to MOV for Final Cut Pro.
Some NLEs handle the MP4 directly.
If you don't use ClipBrowser with CRC to copy, you're risking your masters. Always save a BPAV as the camera master.
