I applied for a Schengen visa 2 years ago and got it, but the visa was revoked because I tried to travel to another Schengen country, which I wasn't allowed to due to the limitations on my Schengen visa.

I was giving some days to vacate the country, which I did. I wasn't deported – it's a voluntary departure – but the earlier visa given was canceled.

Since my earlier circumstance has changed, can I re-apply for a new Schengen visa and this time? Or am I going to be refused because of my earlier visa revocation, which I still have on my passport?

I am only visiting the country that is going to issue the Schengen visa. The earlier visa was issued by the Latvian embassy; now I intend to travel to Estonia as a tourist again.

"am I going to be refused" - It's impossible for us to predict what the visa authorities will do. They will look at your previous history and make a decision whether to grant you a new visa or not. We do not have the information they have about your history, so any answer you get from the internet is going to just be a guess. –  Greg Hewgill May 8 at 2:59
    
@GregHewgill maybe there are some policies, he's asking about that. –  Lohoris May 21 at 14:16
    
It does not guarantee you will be refused, but you will probably face much greater scrutiny when applying for the visa. Be sure that all of your documents and finances are in order. –  Michael Hampton Nov 6 at 20:11
    
What citizenship do you have? –  Mark Mayo Nov 12 at 1:14
    
@GregHewgill you can probably turn that into an answer, frankly. –  Mark Mayo Nov 12 at 1:14

Refusal of earlier visa doesn't mean you will not be given a visa this time. As I read in some of the comments, yes the scrutiny will be more than a normal person and just make sure your documents are just spot on. Your margin of error is less this time. Do not make fake bookings. They might actually call your hotel and check if you have actually booked it.
