"Can I rate it with a zero star"

August 10, 2011  |  By youhong

 |  Version: Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 4.0

Pros

none that I think of

Cons

claims that it can recover your files but only give you corrupted files in the end

Summary

I used the trial version to see what can be recovered from an external HD that I accidentally reformatted. I tried a couple programs and this is the only one that "claims" that it found most of my files. Although this app cost a lot more than some of the other applications, I went ahead and purchased. It copied my files to my computer but none of them can be opened. I tried different files of different types, pdf, mp3, xls, etc, and none of them can be opened. Even txt files are corrupted. Out of the 40GB of data that it recovered, I didn't find a single file that's not corrupted.

Bottom line, it's ok if it tells you that it cannot recover your files, but I think it's wrong to claim that it can recover your files, lures you to buy the software and only get corrupted files back.

"Doesnt' work, lacks effective support, no refund"

October 19, 2012  |  By kh_in_CA

 |  Version: Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 4.0

Pros

easy to install

Cons

The program won't run(for me); the support team is absolutely incompetent and ineffective both via email and on the phone; and despite that I am unable to use the product, no refund.

Summary

The "recovered" sample online appeared so I purchased the program. Once installed, the program will not work. I get error messages instead. Reported this to the support team at Stellar Phoenix by sending in copies of the error messages. Instead of addressing that problem, the co. wanted files, which I provided. I was told the files are corrupted, despite the "recovered" version having appeared when I viewed it online. Of course, this did not address the issue that I am having in not being able to run the program at all. If one purchases a product, one should at least be able to use it, even if the result is not as desired. I'm not able to use it. Still, the company has refused a refund after a month of back & forth. Therefore, I am suggesting and even willing to seek a possible class action lawsuit for those who have similar experiences with Stellar products and the company.

"It is the best data recovery software."

September 11, 2012  |  By rosebrown23

 |  Version: Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 4.0

Pros

It is the most advanced recovery tool which is designed to recover deleted photos of any format including JPEG, GIF, PNG etc from any type of storage media including hard drive, external hard drive, memory stick etc in almost all circumstances. It can also recover the deleted audios and videos of any format including WAV, MP3, AIFF, RPS, MIDI, M4A, AVI , MPEG , MOV , 3GP , ASF, WMV etc. It is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.

Cons

It is little bit slow in the speed but i heard they releases new version stellar photo recovery 5 which is 30% faster.

Summary

I used to trial version to see that software is working or not. With the trial version i was able to see all my lost photos, videos and audios on my corrupted hard drive. To get my data back i had to purchase it (as with trial version i was able to see only preview of recoverable data) and it worked very well for me.

"This is not a reliable company."

April 23, 2012  |  By buckeyelarry

 |  Version: Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 4.0

Pros

Was easy to download.

Cons

Product did not work for me. Company would not issue a refund even though their product did not work.

Summary

Make sure you read all of the online fine print and do the trial run BEFORE you think about purchasing it, as once you pay for it, they will not issue you a refund.

"Best recovery program out there"

October 25, 2011  |  By yankeet2

 |  Version: Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery 4.0

Pros

Recovered my MOV files. Created JPG, MOV MTS etc folders to sort the recovered files not just one big mess of 1000s of files in one folder. Let me do the recovery in steps (first MOV then JPG) without having to rescan.

Cons

none so far

Summary

I tried 5 different programs as well as bringing my SD card to a pro recovery place!! Nothing helped until I got this program. Other programs found some files but didn't name them so I didn't know if they were MTS, MOV JPG etc. Or if they would even work. This program saved me! I got the files back. Thanks!
