The main interface of the product seems simple with five different tabs as below: ‘Data Recovery‘, ‘Email Recovery‘, ‘Resume Recovery‘, ‘Advance Options‘ and ‘Recovery Services‘.
The ‘Recovery Services‘ tab is meant to contact Stellar support team for assistance, while other tabs have been intelligently categorized with different recovery tasks. First comes the ‘Data Recovery‘ tab, which is the most important one with options to recover deleted files, formatted data and lost/deleted volumes.
Here, the software provides another data recovery option, ‘Quick Recovery‘ that helps recovering lost data in less time by performing a fast scan on the troubled media.
The ‘Deleted File Recovery‘ option recovers all your files, which have been accidentally or intentionally deleted from the system. The option further provides two sub-options: ‘Quick Scan’ and ‘Deep Scan’. The ‘Deep Scan’ takes more time than ‘Quick Scan’ method but, performs a thorough scan and thus has more chance of recovering the deleted files.
With the ‘Formatted/Lost File & Folder’ recovery option, you can recover all your data that has been lost due to formatting of any FAT or NTFS file system based Windows partition.
Another wonderful option provided by the software is ‘Search Lost Volume’. This option scans your hard drive and recovers all previously existed Windows partitions, which have been lost or deleted. The software lists all your lost files and recovers data from them using the data recovery options: ‘Quick Recovery’, ‘Deleted File Recovery’ or ‘Formatted/Lost File & Folder Recovery’.
Using the ‘Email Recovery‘ option of the software, you can select a PST or DBX file and recover deleted emails, even after emptying the ‘Deleted Items’ folder. The software allows recovering the entire mailbox or individual mails.
With the ‘Resume Recovery‘ option, you can resume the data recovery process from any previously saved scan information or image file of the media. We rate this as a fantastic option for the users, who do not have enough time for recovery after scanning a huge volume.
Under ‘Advance Options’, the software provides three useful options: ‘Raw Recovery’, ‘Drive Imaging’ and ‘ Drive Status’. With the ‘Drive Status’ option, you can monitor the health of your hard disk and take necessary steps, before any instance of drive failure. The ‘Imaging’ option helps in creating image of the hard disk, volume, or selected region of the disk. Similarly, the software provides an immensely powerful option, ‘Raw Recovery’ to recover data by performing signature based search.
With the Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Free demo version, you can see the preview of what you can recover. You can not recover or save the data. You need to purchase the full version of the software for actual recovery.
The software is 100% reliable and useful both for home as well as professional Windows users. With simple user interfaces and easy data recovery steps, it provides efficient options to recover lost data from almost all instances.
Like other data recovery software, the software fails to recover data, which has been wiped off or over-written. Especially, in case of recovering data from lost volumes, the software fails to recover 100% data (Understood that parts of the volume is over written in due course of time).
Final Verdict – ****
On our test circumstances that simulate various day to day data loss situations, the software kept its promise, as it announces. Except few extremely critical occasions, when the drive has been run with wiping utility or data area has been overwritten, Stellar Phoenix Partition Recovery Software came out gold on recovering the lost data as well as preexisting volumes.
