Hello,

There is also PhotoRec (free).
I think it is based on signature to carve, like a lot of other tool.

Regards

Header/Length and Header/Footer. For RAM memory carving we also have BelkaCarving, a proprietory method to defragment memory contents which improves carving results.

I do a lot of work with recovery of video files. The large majority of cameras do not record video physically sequentially on the camera memory chip and use the FAT to make the file logically sequential when read. If the video chip is deleted, all the fragmentation information is lost.

Thus, data carving does not work (though many companies claim it does!!). The technique I use a lot of is to search a particular tag (signature) at a relevant location within a cluster. eg I may look for a tag "stts" at offset 0x4591 within a cluster. The concept of a signature at a fixed location (typically 0) is not used.

The following link gives a small bit of information on this

http//www.cnwrecovery.com/html/3gp_recovery.html

Overall this is much more complex than simple header and trailer signatures, but can find a reconstruct files with maybe 100s of fragments (GoPro often has over 100 fragments in a 10 min video)

PhotoRec can recognise quite a lot of file signatures (more than 480 file extensions) and is part of Autopsy (now in version 4.0) which is free. You can add filetypes manually in Autopsy if you want.

You can also check Simple Carver Suite
