nope, you're wrong.

if you overwrite a folder with data in it, with a folder with no data in it, the markers are basically stripped from the files that used to exist in that folder. the files still exist, they are just marked as "free space" and are likely to get written over at some point - thus Sherman's sense of urgency.

even if you are to overwrite a folder, with another folder that actually has files in it, the old data is just unlabeled, and the new data is written somewhere marked as blank.
