Whether or not the file can be restored with data rescue software depends on how much new space was needed in the meantime ...

The whole point of the system's security is that there is no way to retrieve it other than brute forcing, and at that password length the entire key space will take a considerable amount longer than your life to brute force! Unless you wrote it down or stored it elsewhere, you'll need to assume whatever was in that encrypted space is gone.
