From Stellar Information Technology:
Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery is a complete disaster recovery solution to recover data from any Ext4, Ext3, Ext2, FAT32, FAT16, FAT12 and exFAT file system based Linux volumes and CD/DVD. The software can help you easily overcome perplex situations of data loss, such as applications failures, storage media failures, hardware device faults, power outages, and user errors. This can recover data from all types of hard drives, including SCSI, SATA, EIDE, and IDE. This Linux recovery utility incorporates varied advanced mechanisms to carry out different types of scan on the storage media. 'Quick Recovery' performs a standard scan on the hard drive. This scan is usually fast and takes minimum time to comb through the entire media. After completion of the scan, all existing as well as deleted files are displayed for recovery. 'Advance Recovery' is comparatively slower than 'Quick Recovery', but facilitates a more intensive and through scanning of the selected drive. The tool also has a unique algorithm that scans the storage media for only deleted files and folders. Using this feature, you can easily get back all your precious files lost to any accidental or bulk deletion of data. Additionally, it also includes a dedicated 'Photo Recovery' module to recover photos and other media files from any selected volume or hard drive. Using this competent utility, you can search your system for all lost or deleted volumes and then safely recover data from these volumes. You can also add your own file types to the list of supported file types for flexibility. Moreover, you are also allowed edit existing file types if required. The software performs recovery in two phases. You can save your scan information as an '.img' file to any desired location in the system. You can use this file to resume the recovery process at any later point of time. Further, the software allows saving the recovered files as individual compressed files or a single compressed Zip folder.
With this tool I had recovered all my permanently deleted files from the Linux volume but the scanning process took about 8 hours which was really annoying. Overall the software is good for deleted files recovery whether file is of any format. I would like to advise developer of this tool to minimize the scanning time.
Files recovered from Lost Linux Volume due to Windows 10 Upgrade!
Previewing of large file size would make software freeze
I had done successful restoration from lost Linux volume that has been accidentally deleted from dual booting operating system(Windows + Linux). I've tried upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 10 which was successful but the major Linux volume full of important files is merged into the Windows partition (by mistake) and all the files were gone.
Luckily, this software has found the lost Linux volume using 'Search Lost Volume' modules and allowed me to save all the files. It doesn't take your hard effort and complete procedure in just 3 hours.
I should keep this installed in my system as an important utility.
Pretty good at scanning large volumes - Ext4
Simply perfect for formatted volumes recovery
List of supported Linux Distros is still unknown
I've been using Ubuntu for 10 years and I'm pretty good at managing files on local hard drive. However, an important volume got formatted somehow compromising 250 GB of files that were really crucial. Using Live CD is what I usually prefer but that didn't seems helpful in this particular case. I've been referenced to use Stellar Linux Tools for recovery from any formatted volumes or accidental deletion.
After connecting the Linux drive externally to a Windows PC, I was able to run the quick scan and get preview of files previously stored on the formatted volume. In about 3 hours of continuous scan, 80% of scan has been completed and it seems Stellar Phoenix has recovered all of my crucial files. V 5.0 has intuitive interface and even faster scan procedure which I like most about this tool.
Finally, I've restored everything back to other drive.
Kudos to this great utility for making it a reality!!
While installing Ubuntu 12.04LTS, I formatted my hard disk accidentally. After I rebooted the system, 2 TB of my precious data have been lost. I tried out few recovery solutions but nothing worked. Such a panic!
Luckily, I found Linux Recovery software from Stellar that helped me to successfully recover the lost files. Losing your precious data can be such a fright; I have already experienced it once. For further data loss prevention, I successfully cloned my 2TB SanDisk hard drive by using the hard drive clone feature of the software. Besides these, S.M.A.R.T and drive imaging are one of the remarkable features of the tool that I would love to use.
Recently, I deleted some of important files from my Ext2 Linux volume by mistake. Applied out few Linux recovery solutions, unfortunately nothing worked.
After trying Stellar Linux recovery tool, I could take a sigh of relief.
The software was able to recover about 3 GB of my lost data. Some files that weren't shown after quick scan were visible under the Extensive scan.
What I liked most is the interactive interface of the software; it made the recovery process easier for a techno heedless person like me.
The software skips some of files that it can't detect
Stellar Phoenix Linux Data Recovery is a great tool. This tool have easy to use and interactive interface that makes the whole recovery process easier for me. The additional utilities provided along with the software are also one of the factors that attracted me to opt this. Besides these bonus tools, the software works flawlessly and recover data even from the severely corrupt / lost / inaccessible data from Linux volumes.
The software flawlessly recovered all the lost data from my Ext4 LINUX partition. The thing I liked most is the advanced recovery features given by the software. These make the recovery process more efficient and quicker.
No errors, absolutely perfect scanning
Didn't came across any
Entire Linux hard drive got formatted accidentally and seriously, not a single file was available. I may have been in big trouble if Stellar Phoenix isn't available. All i had to do was to swap the problem hard drive into Windows system and installed the software. Software itself did the rest of the job and successfully saved all my files including the partitions exactly in the state it was previously seen.
No file were damaged and files with actual name were recovered. Learned a great lesson though, BACKUP Your DATA First!!?
This product does not work. The customer service is crap. If you feel like having $79 stolen from you then buy otherwise DO NOT BUY! I lost power while moving some data, found Stellar Linux and tried the demo, the demo showed that it was finding files so I bought it, after a couple of hours my data was "recovered". In actuality Stellar didn't recover anything. Every file it found was corrupt. After contacting support I've gotten nothing but rude people and a lot of run around and no refund.
The bottom line is this software doesn't work. Try Raise Data Recovery Ext2-Ext4 to recover lost data, it works where Stellar fails.
This tool makes me the luckiest person on earth by saving bunch of useful files and documents from the lost Ext3 volume. Recover methods and customized search results were of great use if you haven't found files you're looking for. As the drive is of pretty big size, It might have needed over an hour for searching the desired files if search option isn't there.
