    I have just recorded a short video which I tried to trim. Unfortunately the bit I wanted to keep, I deleted. Is there any way I can retrieve this?

    I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news but, unfortunately, once you delete something on the iPad, it's gone forever. There's no trash bin like on a PC.

    I would recommend doing your editing in iMovie or Pinnacle Studio so that you can edit without loosing the source files. Trim away without fear of loosing something.

    Thanks for your reply. I will need to be more cautious in future.
