Recovering files - Insufficient disk space in Recuva Posted July 14 I had tried that in previous attempts like I do using file explorer, and it didn't work those times. This time it did work and saved me a tremendous amount of time. According to the scroll bar, approximately 25% was unrecoverable. Thank you for suggesting I try it again. This time when I did the file discovery, it said I was going to need 16TB space to recover to. I spanned 2 x 8TB drives to be my backup so shouldn't have any trouble recovering to that.
