Okay, here's my problem:
My hard drive is failing. It's under warranty and can be replaced.
I had an AVI capture from my camcorder that was several Gb, but is now marked at 0 kb.
Undelete software does not help as the file has not been deleted, but truncated to 0 kb.
I know in theory the data is recoverable.

Here's my theory:
Make an image of the whole hard drive, some 200 Gb.
Put this image on my PC at work and somehow scan this image and extract all video content.
Is there an application that will rip all video content from a large file that contains other "junk"?

Thanks in advance.

I assume the original avi file was captured on tape---Why not just get a new drive, and capture to the new drive---Why go through all the other nonsense.

Alas the tape has been taped over...
