NAME

recovermov - recover movies from a filesystem image  

SYNOPSIS

recovermov [options] device  

DESCRIPTION

Recovermov tries to identify mov movies from a filesystem image. To achieve this goal, it scans the filesystem image and looks for a mov structure at blocks starting at 512 bytes boundaries.

 

OPTIONS

-h
Display an help message.
-b blocksize
Set the size of blocks in bytes. On most file systems, setting it to 512 (the default) will work fine as any large file will be stored on 512 bytes boundaries. Setting it to 1 maximize the chances of finding very small files if the filesystems aggregates them (UFS for example) at the expense of a much longer running time.
-i integerindex
Set the initial index value for image numbering (default: 0).
-n basename
Basename to use to create the salvaged files. Default is video_.

All the sizes may be suffixed by a k, m or g letter to indicate KiB, MiB or GiB. For example, 6m correspond to 6 MiB (6291456 bytes).

 

EXAMPLES

Recover as many movies as possible from the memory card located in /dev/sdc:


  recovermov /dev/sdc

Recover as many movies as possible from a crashed ReiserFS file system (which does not necessarily store files at block boundaries) in /dev/hdb1:


  recovermov -b 1 /dev/hdb1
