What is a .MKV file?

An MKV file is a video container format similar to the .AVI, .ASF, and .MOV formats. It supports several types of audio and video codecs and may include .SRT, .SSA, or .USF (Universal Subtitle Format) subtitles. MKV files also support VobSub subtitles from DVDs.

How to recover lost .MKV files?

Sometimes while working with a computer, laptop or other stationary or mobile devices, you may encounter various bugs, freezes, hardware or software failures, even in spite of regular updates and junk cleaning. As a result, an important .MKV file may be deleted.

By no means should you think that the only way to recover a .MKV file is always to create it once more.

Use programs for recovering .MKV files if a file was lost after accidental or deliberate deleting, formatting the memory card or the internal storage, cleaning the storage device, after a virus attack or a system failure.
