Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Professional is a powerful data recovery tool that can restore any kind of lost files, may they be photos, videos, documents or audio files.
This powerful application is able to scan entire drives and locate files lost due to any kind of reasons, such as accidental deletion, virus attacks or disk formatting. It also supports scanning the nowadays’ very large drives, of over 2 TB capacity.

Though being feature-rich and comprehensive, its interface is pretty simple and easy-to-use, making the program suitable for any category of users, including beginners. Even though the recovery process is indeed easy and can be performed by anyone, it doesn’t mean it’s also fast. Even the “Quick Recovery” mode of Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Professional took almost an hour to scan a mere 50 GB disk partition on my averagely-equipped workstation. Anyway, this is pretty much the only important downside of this application, next to the fact that the scanning and recovery process can’t be paused or saved and resumed at a later time. Once started, you have to wait till it’s over.

Many other features and functions are available, making this tool a remarkable data recovery solution: it comes with a handy email recovery function that can recover mail data from PST files, it provides a recovery solution for the infamous RAID 0, 5 & 6 logical failure, it lets you create disk clones, it allows you to view various drive related statistics, and much more. Though it has some flaws, it surely justifies every penny of its price with its many cool features and functions.

ronald.lee25 Perfect choice of software for data recovery. The feature of RAW recovery and saving the recovered file in a compressed format is awesome. It helps me to avoid saving multiple files together and saves my time too. Thanks Stellar!

Peter_Jeromine78 Being a non-technical person, I don't find any difficulty in recovery lost data. The most powerful feature of this software is its interface, which clearly defined each and each thing step-by-step. No need for any assistance or support. Good job Stellar!
