Sure. I don't necessarily require *literal* removal of some data from a file. But I'm looking for a process that will *logically* amount to removal of some data. This process could look like:

mv filename.m4v filename-bak.m4v
some-command -from filename-bak.m4v -to filename.m4v

The process is successful if the result of the process looks like what you would expect from literal removal.
