  1. Hi, I filled a 2tb external drive is filled to the brim (i.e with only 50mb or so of free space remaining), then proceeded to delete around 10GB of data from the drive. Then I wrote back 10GB of different data on the drive, leaving around 50mb of free space again. However, running Recuva now shows me that it can recover multiple files (without overwritten clusters) that amount to more than 3-4gb! How is this possible? Since the previous data was overwritten by the new data, the old data shouldnt be recoverable, unless there is some extra free space that the hard disk doesnt show? DM
