why does my recovery software find extensive and exponential amounts of data?

i have an external SSD hard drive that had almost 2TB of data on it.

Stellar Data Recovery software shows 277,000TB after scan.

what's the deal? that's completely out of proportion.

it's music, pictures, emails, documents...

if anything, it should be like 1.7TB of data. not 277,000TB.

First off, Stellar is absolute garbage. You are likely seeing a lot of false positives.

Most DR utilities will unearth every thing it finds, very often unearthed are many files, same name, some variance in size, different dates and hours, from an original to many copies. That is one reason for the huge number of findings.
