Review – Stellar Data Recovery Premium


No matter how careful we are, there will undoubtedly be a time we need to recover a deleted or damaged file. Stellar Data Recovery Premium may well be the tool for you.

Accidentally deleted files, corrupt disks, formatted hard drives, inaccessible volumes, removable memory cards that no longer open – any long-term computer user has seen them all, for themselves as well as friends and family. A good data recovery tool pays for itself and is a piece of software you’ll always be relieved to have on hand in the times you need it.

Here's where Stellar Data Recovery Premium comes in.

The company behind the product is Stellar Data Recovery, who says it runs on any Windows device in the world. It also has a Macintosh OS X and an iOS iPhone version available.

The list of features is vast, supporting NTFS, FAT, FAT16, FAT32, ExFat, CDFS, UDF and HFS+ file systems across hard disks, CD/DVD drives and other removable media.

Despite the complexity under the hood, the app is a cinch to use – simply search, or scan your disk(s), preview the files it finds, and recover those you want. It can also repair corrupted videos and photos.

What’s more, the app lets you create an image of hard disks and volumes for recovery, allowing you to file them away or search through them at future times, without fear of loss.

The user interface is elegant and thoughtful, with optional file previewing on scanning, a tabbed interface and various customisations, meaning you can always be sure what you need to do as well as personalise it to suit yourself.

Stellar Data Recovery Premium is available for US$99.99, reduced from US$179.99, and is an admirable product for any tech-savvy person’s toolkit.
