    Hi All

    I have a tough one. I recorded an AVI video one hour long. The camera seemed frozen for a while in the record mode (at first it would not shut off) When I got back home and checked the camera it said: 'File error' with a blue screen. My first mistake was to delete the file. My second was to record a 9 second clip to check if the camera was working. I then deleted the clip.

    One day later I retrieved the deleted file using Recuva. The file is 1.14GB. However when I play it I only get the 9 second clip. Now I'm thinking that the size indicates that the original one hour video is still there but that only the index of the 9 sec clip has been retrieved.

    How can I retrieve the one hour video? Surely only 9 seconds is overwritten. The rest is there.

    Is there an AVI editor that will allow me to open the 1.14GB file, remove the 9 sec clip and reconstruct an index?

    Any advice is welcome.

    Thanks.
