How to recover a video that you only saved on Instagram

Every day we take dozens of photos and shoot videos for any occasion. The cameras in our smartphones make it possible to capture the smiles of children, our pets, our families, and the beauty of the world around us. We willingly share many of these photos and videos with our friends on social networks.

Some recordings are completely unimportant, and we are unlikely to return to them again, while others remain in our hearts for a long time, and we want to review them after some time.

How to save meaningful videos?

One of the easiest ways to save a video recording for a long time is to share it on your social network. It doesn’t matter if your accounts are open to the public or closed and accessible only to the dearest people, here you can publish it all.

The file will be saved on the social platform’s secure cloud and subsequently available for viewing. Even if you accidentally delete the video from your phone or computer afterward, there is a way to save IG videos which we will explain later. It allows you to download Instagram videos free in seconds. 

Another option is to use a cloud depository. For iPhone users, iCloud is available, or you can use Google Drive which gives you up to 15 GB of free storage space.

However, if you shoot a lot of photos or videos in high quality, you will need to use a paid subscription to expand the capabilities of your cloud.

It is not always reliable to store digital materials on computers and USB drives, because the flash drive can be lost, and photos on the hard drive of the computer can also be erased due to a virus or if your device breaks down.
