I think the brain cross references memories to save space, so when similar events occur you reference mostly the same information. I would say proof for this lies in the times that you recall a memory that you believe to be true only to find out that was 2 seperate events. I also believe that the brain does not store information in the conventional way like a computer would, I believe that common images, words and integers are indexed and referenced which is why we find it much harder to remember complex images and integers.
