Best Video Recovery Software

If you have an emergency with corrupt video files and need video recovery immediately, please visit AeroQuartet website.

I had the opportunity of interviewing Benoît Joossen, the founder of an incredible video recovery company called AeroQuartet. I used their services 5 years ago when I had a corrupt video file. I recall trying many different solutions but AreoQuartet was the only service that was able to recover my video date 100%.

Tips To Avoid Damaged Video Files in the Future

  • Avoid using the newest cameras until the firmware has been proven and up to date after a few months on the market
  • Use a fast enough card for your type of camera/video format
  • Avoid recording to hard drives that are almost full / Disk fragmentation
  • Verify all files with software or manually check the first, middle, and last file of each card
