Video: Little Girl Devastated After Discovering that the Photo She Deleted is Gone Forever

4-year-old Cadence may have just made the best, most adorable argument ever for backing up your files and printing your pictures in a video that had us smiling and tearing up all at the same time.

According to 22 Words, she was playing with her brother’s camera when she accidentally discovered the delete function. Beside herself at having deleted a photo of her ‘Uncle Dave,’ a photo that she now realized was gone FOREVER, she held it together just long enough to record the plea for more photos above.

Look at that face! This, ladies and gentlemen, is what happens every time you don’t back up your photos… little girls cry:

Fear not though, Cadence is okay now. 22 Words assures us Uncle Dave responded to her heartfelt request… as if he could have told her no.

    Cute. Now would be an excellent time to introduce her to file recovery. It’s especially quick and easy to do on memory cards.

  • SeoulFood

    That’s an advanced technique that can only be taught when someone is 6.

    Thats the most adorable thing I’ve seen all week

    That’s not very advanced. I started learning how to program in Basic around that age. If 6 year olds know how to get around an ipad then they should have no problem clicking a few buttons. Kids are like little sponges that soak up knowledge.

    Works fine on memory cards, but since she’s asking her uncle to send more, I’m pretty sure the picture was on a smartphone, where data gets moved around all the time, making the recovery pretty much impossible.

    Anyone else see Grumpy Cat?

    My doctor said I might never have kids. Seeing other kids in my family breaks my heart into pieces.

  • slyman

    was just going to mention this. they probably took this video on the same thing and truly made it gone forever.

  • Melka

    Sorry dude :(

    Going completely off topic, that looks like a posh hair cut for a little girl. Of course I wouldn’t recognize a posh hair cut being a bloke and all… She knows all the words though. She’ll be threatening to ‘delete’ the bullies at play school, and without the tears ;-)

    BTW There appears to be lots of iPhone file/data recovery software if you Google, but I think the comment below about this video overwriting the uncle image, could well be the case.

    Someone is whispering her the word ‘forever’…
