Why can you recover deleted ORF file?

Hard Disk and Memory Cards do not immediately re-use space from deleted ORF files and leave it there for a while after the ORF file has been deleted; therefore you can recover deleted ORF photos from Memory Cards. A Photo that has been deleted a while ago still has a good chance of being recovered, but the chances of an absolute undelete decrease the longer you leave it, because it is only a matter of time before that space is re-used and overwritten.
