[Software Review] – Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery

Data plays a very crucial role for each individual whether it is Home user or Enterprises where as  damage to your computer can  make your data unreadable and that’s where you need a good data recovery software to get you out of trouble, by recovering your valuable data. It has happened to me and I have experienced losing valuable data. Trust me, it is troublesome when you cannot go back in time and re-create it. But if you have a good Data Recovery Software the chances of losing data are least.

Few days back I came to know about this user friendly software “Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery“ and  also got a chance to test it.

Stellar Data Recovery offers a wide range of applications for Data Recovery with two flagship products Windows Data Recovery – Home and Windows Data Recovery – Professional . Professional version helps recovering data from the storage devices with extreme crash scenarios – like recovering lost or inaccessible hard drive partitions.




I used a 4 GB Pen drive for testing – on a machine with following configuration:

OS Windows 8.1 Enterprise
CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-5200U /2.20 GHz
Data Recovery Software Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Home


The Application has a clean UI – allowing you to select what you want to recover. Since I was using it first time so I want to go with   “All Data” option.





I start with formatting the drive and then copied some files to it (around 90 MB in total). I combined multiple file formats to make sure it works well with different file formats.



For testing the data recovery feature – I first deleted all the contents permanently (using SHIFT + DEL) from the Flash Drive and run the  Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery software.

I was quite happy to see all the files appearing on the screen which I had permanently deleted from the Flash Drive and then I click on Recover button and select the folder where I wanted to save the files . You can turn the preview off if you want to get quick results.

Always make sure that you have enough storage to save the recovered files. For example – if you’re trying to recover data of 10 GB, there should be enough space to save files of 10 GB on your functional storage (Hard Disk in most cases).

I didn’t run “Deep Scan” because it showed me all the files. Though I did something different. I formatted the Flash Drive again and ran Deep Scan on it. Normal scan didn’t show me any results.

The Deep Scan on the 4GB Pen drive took nearly 30 minutes of run but unfortunately it couldn’t find any file.

Hence the data can’t be recovered if you reformat the drive and it is actually not possible if you run any Recovery Software.

You can recover 1 GB of data with free version  and require  upgrade if you want to recover extensive data.

The User Interface of the application is very intuitive . It has all the relevant features and one of the most Effective and User friendly Data Recovery software.

I recommend Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery as you can recover your data in blink of an eye with it.
