Stellar Phoenix Outlook PST Repair opens with a simple and clear user interface. There are two distinguished options for the users to select or find the corrupt PST file. With the ‘Select Outlook File’ option, you can select the file from its location. And if you don’t know the exact location of the PST file, use the ‘Find Outlook File’ option to list all PST files and choose the one, you want. The green ‘START’ button clearly visible and self explanatory to proceed towards scanning the corrupt PST. Moreover, the interface shows detail instructions as in the below screen shot.
The process progress bar reflects the scanning completion process and helps you know the current status of the scanning process.
Once the scanning process completes, the software displays all recoverable mail folders in a tree structure. You can click any mail item and preview it. Here, the software provides an innovative recovery method, ‘Advance Scan’ to recover the deleted mails. You can select all or any particular mail folder and save them by clicking the ‘Save Recovered File’ button.
Stellar Phoenix PST Recovery Software provides the option, ‘Find’ to search required mail items from a even a huge mailbox. Apart from recovering the mail folders as PST file, the software also allows saving individual mails in EML or MSG format.

Plus and Minus Points:
The software has a highly interactive graphical user interface and with a simple three step PST Recovery process (Select, Scan and Save) is pretty easy to use, even without any prior technical knowledge. Importantly, the software is 100% read only in its recovery process and the efficient enough to recover, what it promises.
For the users, who just need to recover only few of their mails, the price of $129 may seem a bit high. However, it is quite worth purchasing for the ones, who need their Outlook mailboxes badly.
