Stellar Data Recovery (Professional) Review

Rating: 8.0.

Ever had that sinking feeling when a file or folder gets lost or goes missing, and you suddenly remember that you told yourself you would do the backup later? Or have you ever deleted a partition and then realise that yes, that stuff on it was needed after all? If so, it’s time arm yourself with some data recovery software. Stellar Data Recovery is quick to install and is a powerful data recovery tool that is available in a number of options and price plans.

Previously known as the rather long-winded Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Professional, Stellar Data Recovery Professional supports data recovery from SSDs, hard drives and USB drives formatted with NTFS, exFAT and FAT (FAT16/FAT32). It also supports data recovery from a crashed and/or unbootable system as well as recovering files from scratched or partially burned optical media such as CD or DVDs.

Besides the Professional version, there are five other Windows Stellar Data Recovery options: Free, Standard, Premium, Technician and Toolkit. Each jump in the food chain brings extra features and recovery tools. It also comes in three Mac versions; Free, Professional and Premium.

It supports file recovery from over 200 different file types including office documents, PDF, emails, images, database, audio, video, archive and databases:
