    "Great tool, saved my life!"

    August 21, 2014  |   By Edward Carter

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Easy, effective and does what is advertised

    Cons

    After recovery i lost some pictures while opening in another system

    Summary

    This product was the only thing that worked for me to recover my data. Totally worth the $100. i thought i had a time machine back up on my macbook pro (2006) and had my hard drive re-formated. when i found out i didn't have the back up i proceeded to frantically search for a way to recover my data. This product saved me!

    "Paid but recovered all deleted files"

    July 10, 2014  |   By flora.gloria

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Good at recovering deleted files

    Cons

    Bit costly for one time use

    Summary

    When my younger brother innocently deleted all of my Mac data I was like OMG..OMG.. Didn't have a backup either to support my daily work. Thankfully I came to know about this tool through Apple Discussion threads. Downloaded it quickly & scanned my Apple 500GB hard drive. With each passing minute I got to see software recovering deleted files. With $99 registration I was able to get back all my files. I am thankful to the software, which helped me come out of an unexpected situation. I only wonder why these tools are not available for free :-)

    "A life saving product!"

    July 1, 2014  |   By mariagunn21

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Simple and Clear options

    Cons

    Didn't find any

    Summary

    Yes, I mean it because the way it recovered my business data (client details), is beyond expectation. I got every single file, lost in drive crash.

    Saved my business ! Saved my family!

    Thanks to Stellar.

    "Silent Disk Rescuer"

    June 12, 2014  |   By milosjake

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Scan corrupt disk

    Cons

    Much more faster scan is needed. 4 hours scan was too much.

    Summary

    Ok so this happened to me, one of the hfs formatted Mac partition went unrecognized by the OS X & Disk Utility. I checked multiple times if the partition was accidentally made unmounted through disk utility. Also tried safe mode but all efforts proved to be of no use. Thinking data must be intact in the partition I tried few data recovery apps. I have read one of the article on unmounted Mac disk recovery which suggested to download Stellar Phoenix software. Indeed, the drive was found by the software, it was shown as an inactive disk by the software drive menu clearly indicating the corruption. Since I ran Partition recovery scan the hfs partition was located and all the data inside it was recovered. If I would have gone for the data recovery services I am sure I had ended up paying more than $200.

    "Worked as expected"

    May 22, 2014  |   By eduardo_45

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Crisp interface of the software, works quickly on usb flash drives.

    Cons

    $100 is costly

    Summary

    I choose this software for data recovery after going through many Mac forums. I came to know they offer refund if software doesn't perform. So tried my luck but as the forums said, it worked brilliantly for my usb drive. I have restored entire data which was not detected on my Mac. Though I admit it's a costly tool.

    "'Recovered DNG' files couldn't be opened"

    May 5, 2014  |   By ASuperGav

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Recovery time good. Finds data you thought you lost.

    Cons

    It supposedly recovered lost dng files. However, I could not open them making the whole thing a waste of time. Expensive.

    Summary

    I would not recommend this application.

    "Recovered HD MOV & tons of images on Mac 10.8.2"

    April 28, 2014  |   By jimy888

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Recovered media objects

    Cons

    Scan took time to complete on my 1TB HDD

    Summary

    I had many HD MOV files erased from my OS X 10.8.2 along with thousands of images. This data recovery software found almost 90% of the images and successfully recovered entire pool of HD MOV videos. It was wonderful to see many other files which were deleted years ago were back.

    "Very Questionable Business Practices"

    March 24, 2014  |   By LycheeUser

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    Recovered some jpg files and a small amount of video clips that I had lost.

    Cons

    Software does not fulfill what it promises. Only small amount of data are recovered. Support is responding to my questions by asking me to proof my purchase. When I paid 99 USD online to their reseller Cartsafe, I never got an email acknowledging my purchase. Seems support is just keeping me at arm s length. Very questionable business practices here.

    Summary

    I can only warn against purchasing Stellar Macintosh Data Recovery, as the product is now marketed.

    Updated on Mar 24, 2014

    Update: The reseller where I purchased this software is called Safecart.

    "Great product"

    March 21, 2014  |   By srussow

    Version: Stellar Phoenix Mac Data Recovery 6.0.0.3

    Pros

    I was able to recover all my files from an SD Drive. I have not tries for recovering from an HD, but I am very happy with it. Yippeee! I have my important videos back that I accidentally erased.

    Cons

    It seems to take awhile, but don't care if it does the job right

    Summary

    Quite frankly I am surprised about the negative reviews here. I am very satisfied with the product!
