It facilitates recovery from different storage devices such as hard drives, pen drives, memory cards, etc. and also helps retrieve data from lost or deleted partitions of the hard drive.
Content and Features:
The Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Free Edition follows a simple 3-step procedure in order to recover the lost data from almost all kinds of devices including external and internal hard disks, camera, desktops, USB drives, SD cards and memory cards.
Select The Media: Choose the type of files you wish to recover and then select the location that the files originally belong to. Once you have identified the file type, you are ready to begin with the Scanning process.
Scanning: Once you have selected the file location from which you wish to recover the desired file, the software scans the entire volume for lost data. A snippet of the lost files could be visible to you while the scanning is in process in the form of Tree view, File Type, and Deleted List. An option for turning off the preview is available too.
Once the Scan is done, enter the location where the recovered data is to be saved.
In case you wish to recover an entire lost partition, the software allows you to look for it through its “Can’t Find Drive” option available under “Other Locations” in the location selection screen which is then followed by a thorough Deep Scan.
Another highlighting feature of the software is its ability to recover lost or deleted Optical Media Files such as scratched, corrupted or partially burnt CDs and DVDs.
