Where does Recuva get its list of deleted files from?

I'm just curious about where Recuva gets its deleted file list from. Does it come from some file allocation table, or does Recuva scan the entire disk for file clusters? It seems too quick for a full disk scan, yet if it just scanned some FAT then surely there would be lots of files lying on the disk undiscovered. (I'm on XP with an NTFS disk.)


Please excuse any failure on my part to grasp how files are addressed.
