It proves it can find damaged drives and lost files, but the demo version won't let you save found files. With its file trees and simple button interface, it takes only a few minutes to understand how to operate Stellar Phoenix NTFS Data Recovery. The Help file is clear, concise, and easily understood.
It doesn't take long to get a list of recoverable files with this application. The program uses three drive scans: quick, but not thorough, complete, but not fast, and Drive Image File. The last recreates a specified region of a drive sector by sector. The image is then used to scan and recover files, which saves wear-and-tear on the damaged drive. Our testers found the quick scan very true its name. A 200GB drive was scanned in just a few moments. It lists found files in a second window. A tool to find a file by extension was helpful, but the comprehensive File Mask option is much more useful and accurate.
The demo disables the save function, so it's a leap of faith to trust if this program can accurately restore a file. If you just have a single file you need to recover, we suggest you look for a freeware alternative. We can recommend Stellar Phoenix NTFS Data Recovery for its speed, but we can't make any promises about its recovery potential.
