Q: Can fragmentation of the drive affect the result of the recovery?
Fragmentation in NTFS should not affect the results of the recovery. Information about a file's allocation is stored in a MFT entry. However with the FAT file system, this information is stored in the FAT and this information will be lost after deleting, so the lower the fragmentation of the drive is, the higher the chance of a recovery is.
