I am not sure what this is...
I used Premieres media import,
Are you saying you Imported files to the Project direct from an SD Card...then it gave you an option to Delete the Card contents?
Or is that a Premiere Application 'Media Import'
I selected " import files" and navigated to my SD card. It then showed me the files on the card, I chose the three I wanted, and clicked the delete media when imported box. So the media was imported for adobe, but I don't know where to.
clicked the delete media when imported box.
You need to tell us what application you were in when you did this process. "import file"
Seems that you have done this in the past but in a different manner ( a correct manner).
What is different this time ?
Hi, it was Adobe Premiere 11. I found the imported video's on my C drive, in the " my videos" folder, so all was not lost ! Although it had deleted the files from my SD card, they were safe on my PC !
Glad that you found the Imported files.
it was Adobe Premiere 11.
Is this Adobe Premiere Elements 11?
Yes, looks like poster is using Elements. Premiere Pro does NOT physically move or copy files during "Import", rather just puts references to those clips into Premiere, original files stay put. Definitely no "Delete when done" button in PPro that I've ever seen!
Best practice for SD cards is to copy entire contents to hard drive, then also BACK UP to another hard drive before reformatting card. Too easy to delete everything with one errant mouse click, better safe than sorry. Guard that data!

Yes sorry, it is Elements 11, it does everything I need it to do, as an amateur video blogger, but in future, I will just transfer to my external HDD, then import it !
