I needed to restore data on my 500 GB HDD after a (Vista) system problem occurred which forced me to reinstall my OS. After 66+ hours of processing, RECUVA (my recovery software) requested that I attach an HDD with a capacity of 2.6 TB (!?!) that it needed to recover my data.

Why would RECUVA request 5 times the amount of space to recover my data (when I never even used all of the original 500 GB) ?!?
