And here's a problem - the next cluster after my "test
recording" 15 minutes before the interview-file is not
the right one (maybe to less coherent free clusters?).
so how do i find the beginning of THE record - cluster
search want's a search string or something...

How? I don't know the name of the file!

That worked fine for me. there's still hope and if
nothing helps i will copy all the clusters to my
desktop and hear them thru manually. I really really
thank you so far!
