So what can Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery do exactly?* Recovers deleted data from Internal and external hard drives (including RAID and network drives) * Recovers lost data from inaccessible partitions (including ExFat, Fat and NTFS) * Recovers documents, photos, videos and other archive files * Scan and Recover data from specific folder within minutes
Well then, that is lots of data it can recover! Let’s give the software a test run. Below is what the home screen looks like which conveniently lays out all the types of files you can recover with the application.
On the Select Location page, we choose where the tool should scan for the missing data. The product also provides the option of a deep scan (you can toggle this on and off).
The tool gets to work and starts searching high and low for our long lost data. Since it looks like it’ll take a while, time to have a tea or coffee break. Data Recovery is hard work isn’t it?
Don’t be fooled by the 19 minutes though… realistically it only took a few minutes to perform the data recovery operation. Now let’s check out what the Stellar Phoenix tool recovered for us… *drum roll*
Well look at that, it found some files that I thought were long gone. Well done! They are listed under three tabs – File Type, Tree View and Deleted List to enable the user to smoothly manoeuvre wade through the files.
If you want to recover particular files, one proviso is that you have to make sure that the destination volume is not the same as the source volume. This is to prevent you accidentally overwriting your current data which would be a headache indeed! If you only have one source volume available, then you’ll have to use an external hard drive/USB to save the recovered files and then you can move them back onto your computer.Support
