    Does anyone know of a program that will search the hard drive for corrupt video files?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks, Bob. It sounds like what I was needing, but they want my credit card.

    Yeah, As I said I never used it but I didn't go far enough into the registration process to see that they wanted some plastic.
    Are these any particular type of video file? AVI, MPG3 or whatever or are you looking for ALL types of files?

    I've got a program called ThumbsPlus, which is a pertty nifty graphics editor. It scans the folder structure on hard drives, etc. and builds thumbnails of all graphics/video files it finds. If it finds one that is corrupt, it crashes. There's no log file generated by the program, so I can't tell which folder (I have a lot) has the bad file. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and scan each folder manually until it crashes.
