MTS file extension is the high-definition MPEG-2 Transport Stream video format, commonly called “AVCHD” used by Sony, Panasonic, Canon and JVC camcorders. The MTS file format supports 1080i and 720p in a relatively small file size.
MTS files stored on an HD camcorder can be deleted due to accidentally press the “Delete All” button instead of “Delete” button or device-reformatting. When MTS files are deleted or formatted from camcorders, the file’s name and directory location information is usually erased by the camcorder system, but its contents are still present on the disk. Therefore, you still have the chance to recover them if the lost contents have not been overwritten.
