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.

       recovermov  stores  the  recovered  movies  into the current directory.  If you want it to
       store them elsewhere, just go to the directory you want recovermov to save the movies into
       (using  the cd command at the shell prompt) and start recovermov from there, or use the -o
       option.

       Note that device is not necessarily a physical device.  It may also be a file containing a
       copy  of  the  faulty  device in order to reduce the actual processing time and the stress
       imposed to an already defective hardware.  dd(1) or ddrescue(1) may be used to create such
       a working copy.

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_.

       -o directory
              Change the working directory before restoring files.  Use this  option  to  restore
              files  into  a  directory with enough space instead of the current directory.  This
              option can be repeated.

       -V     Display program version and exit.

       All the sizes may be suffixed by a k, m, g, or t letter to indicate KiB, MiB, GiB, or TiB.
       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
