Hi, everyone. Thanks for reading this.

I was capturing video from a DV camera directly to my Windows 7 laptop NTFS hard drive using firewire (the performance was 2 hours with no break, so tape wasn't an option).

After about 80 minutes the laptop just powered off - I think it had overheated.

I've pulled the hard drive without switching the laptop on since it crashed. It's a 2" SATA drive now attached to a USB adapter on a different Windows 7 PC

I'm trying to recover as much of the AVI as I can, but it's not showing when I use undelete software. I'm hoping there is some trace of the file to start my recovery procedure: At the time of the crash, the PC must have been maintaining some record of the file's location, as it would be needed to prevent other processes from writing over the video data.

The video capture routine was in Magix Movie Edit 17 Pro, if that helps.

Nevermind - managed to recover the file using MiniTool Power Data Recovery 6.5

Now just need to repair the AVI as it doesn't seem to have been saved with a FourCC...
