Computer: Windows 7
Camtasia Version: 8.4.1
Software: Camtasia Screen Recorder
Problem: Can't open backup camtasia recording file because access denied

I'm trying to recover an unsaved camtasia recording. It basically had an error and stopped recording because I ran out of disk space and this error will not go away no matter what I do and won't let me save anywhere even when I finally did clear enough disk space. It won't preview the video properly, etc. I followed the posts on how to recover the unsaved camtasia recordings through doing Windows + R and typing "%temp%" and it will open up a file location of the backup files, and I did. I still haven't closed the 'Preview' camtasia recorder because if I do close it it will be deleted and I'm not sure if that will delete the camrec folder that I found in this default file location. So, I look and see the camrec folder with the right date on it and I try to open it. I'm on Windows 7 as administrator, but the folder refuses to give me access to it and says that the current owner is "unknown". I try to change the owner in the properties>security but it won't let me. What do I do??? Those 30 minutes of recordings are extremely important to me :(

Well f****** s*** I decided to close that stupid preview and that folder, that only glimpse of hope of retrieving my lost data, just vanished. How f****** stupid. The software should've let me downloaded the video after there was enough disk space left but it just ended up corrupting and destroying my recording. What a waste of f****** time and f****** energy. I hate this. I hate this so f****** much. Just kill me now.
