- start recording screen;
- kill process camrecorder.exe;
- rename corrupted file with name of new recording from CamRec0;
- move corrupted file with overwrite to CamRec0 folder;
- launch Camtasia Recorder and it will ask to recover last recording.

In my case it has successfully recover corrupted file.
oh, ty for trying to help, but when i did everything like u said, its still stuck at 97%. but i saw how it leaves the file called screen.avi if i kill process on these 97%, so it recodes some of video. however, wmp + K-lite wont play that screen.avi ,but i got an idea to put that screen.avi in to multi video files converter and i saw how it decodes video and plays. but i dont wanted to convert the video, for quality saving and the time, cause its large 3Gb video file. then i tryed to open the file with the vlc media player and it did! i can see my video! just its haz some issues if i try to skip some minute to get to middle of video, it does the job but video progress bar leaves stay at beginning. however, problem solved :) thank you all for trying to help!

I'm having this problem.

I also have avi file, but in my case VLC cant open it...

Can someone help me?
