    Video repair tools that don't charge $70 for the working program or $24 to repair a single file are rare or non-existent. There is however a tool that works against itself and repairs your video free of charge - all you do is a little file copying to trick it. The tools' flaw is the method they chose to cripple the demo - the demo saves 50% of the file you repair with it. You will be amazed how simple it is to get a 100% repair out of it. First, download the repair demo fromwww.grauonline.com . It comes as a zip file which you expand to your download folder and it creates a videorepair folder with the gs.exe program which you will run to get to the repair. Before you do that though, put your corrupted video file in a folder where you can get to it. Create a new folder called copy and copy the corrupted file to it. Switch to copy folder and rename the file to something else - mine was DJI_0001.mp4 i renamed the copy to DJI_0002.mp4. Copy the renamed file to the same folder the original is in. Press Ctrl - Shift - Right Click and select Open command window here. At the command prompt type - copy /b DJI_0001.mp4 + DJI_0002.mp4 <enter>. It will take a few seconds for the command prompt to return at which point you will have stitched together the two files into one. The DJI_0001.mp4 is now the file you will repair in the gs.exe program and because it's two back to back copies of the file you want repaired - suddenly a 50% crippled demo becomes a 100% functional program! Run gs.exe and open Options. Under custom repair parameters select -single. Check off No CTTS repair. Hit the repair button. Select as your input movie the stitched file you made. Choose your output folder. As your reference movie, select one of the many good movie files you have on hand made by the same drone camera. Run the repair.
