Recover a Camtasia’s Screen Recorded Video

This article helps you in recovering captures that have been lost after recorder crashes. You’ll also get to know about a professional recovery software to ease the process of Camtasia capture or recording recovery after the recorder crashes.


The Camtasia Recorder shutdown due to a random shutdown of the computer or some other technical reason while creating a video.

“Here is the thing. I was using Camtasia to capture a video that was supposed to upload to YouTube. All things were perfectly done until my computer suddenly shut down! At first, I didn’t sense a little dangerous because I remember the recording file was saved on my computer. However, when I turned on the computer, I searched everywhere but found nothing about the capture. I need Camtasia recording back.”

Solution #1:

The Camtasia Studio Recorder has a built-in disaster recovery feature that will attempt to auto-recover a failed recording. Open Camtasia, go to “Tools>Options>Program”. In the “Program” part, there is an option called AutoSave, and there you may have set a time interval so that at every set interval the file will automatically be saved at the default temporary storage folder: C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\.

Solution #2:

In the event that the above solution doesn’t work out in recovering a capture after the Camtasia recorder crashes, attempt these steps:

  • Hold down the Windows key on your keyboard and then press the R key
  • In the run window that appeared, type in the following: %temp%
  • Sort this folder by Date Modified
  • Look for a folder named Camrec <random number>
  • Inside this folder, you should see your video file. Copy that file to your desktop and try importing it into Camtasia.

Note: There are various file formats that can be imported into Camtasia recorder for editing along with AVI. If your file is AVI video and you find that it has been damaged after attempting the steps, then you can use a reliable video repair tool to fix AVI file easily.

However, the above solutions work when you have not saved your recording before the recorder crashes, which further depends on whether you have enabled the AutoSave option in advance! But what if you have saved the Camtasia recording in AVI format and lost it after the recorder crash? Well under such cases, using a file recovery software that is mentioned in next solution shall be the optimal choice.
