STELLAR PHOENIX WINDOWS DATA RECOVERY 7 PROFESSIONAL
Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery makes recovering lost data easy with its simple user interface, short data recovery procedure, and a high degree of flexibility. The tool enables users to recover data from situations such as accidental file deletion, system crashes, disk corruption, media formatting, and more.
We got a chance to review the professional version. We first tested drive recovery feature that helps to recover all the deleted files from storage devices and system volumes. You can also regain the deleted, corrupted, lost files by using the Deep Scan option. You can select “Deep Scan” and run a more thorough scan of the selected location. This scan takes longer and should be run in case the primary scan is unable to deliver desired results. Deep Scan will look for all files and recover even raw data.
Lost Partition Recovery: If your entire partition is missing, the software allows you to look for it through its “Cant’ Find Drive” option available under “Other Locations” in the location selection screen. It scans the hard drive for missing partitions which have been lost due to corruption or have been accidentally deleted. Once the partition has been found, all data can be recovered from it easily. After selecting the “Can’t Find Drive” option, simply select the hard drive in which the partition was created and click “Search”. All partitions found will be listed under the partitions section. If the desired partition is not listed, click on “Deep Scan” to locate it. Select the desired partition to begin scanning for data recovery.
Recover From Disk Images: If your drive has many bad sectors you have an option to create an image of that drive and recover data. Click on “Recover From Disk Images” to create a new image or recover data from existing image. Select the drive or partition to create an image. Here you have an option to select a specific range of the hard drive for imaging under “Advanced Settings” and create a new image for data recovery.
The interface of the software is very straight forward and easy to use. When you run the software, it will ask for what to recover and if you want to recover some particular file type just select that, it will save your time and made the scanning fast.
Users can recover data from damaged CD/DVD using CD/ DVD recovery option. It helps to get almost every data, though it wasn’t able to recover everything from a damaged/ scratched DVD in our test. It can scans for all the deleted, damaged and corrupted images from external USB drives and system volumes.

It recovers all popular email clients data files including MS Outlook (PST), MS Outlook Express (DBX), MS Exchange Server (EDB), MS Lotus Notes (NSF) and much more file types.

You can create an image of hard disks, existing logical volumes in hard disks and any removable media like pen drives, external hard disks.

Also, the Stellar data recovery professional version comes with a freeware with same features but that can only recover 1GB of data, So if you planning to buy a data recovery software then you can give it a try by using its free version.
