Technology occupies a huge part of our life and we are more dependent on its services than in any time in the past. And while it has tremendously facilitated our life in several sectors from education to business, our dependence on it comes with a price. Data loss is one of the major issues that jeopardizes our technology use. 

Reasons for data loss are numerous including sudden power outage, virus attack, accidental deletion, badly formatted or corrupt hard drive, among others. Hence the importance of having a reliable data recovery software such as Stellar Data Recovery. 

Stellar Data Recovery is one of the top softwares for retrieving deleted or lost data. I have tried on my device and found it really amazing. I was able to retrieve files I intentionally deleted and although the deep scan took longer than I expected but it did a great job. Stellar Data Recovery works on both Mac and Windows  and allows you to recover various file types such as documents, email files, photos, videos, audio files, and more. It also enables you to recover data from formatted, corrupted, and encrypted drives.
Stellar Data Recovery offers two types of scans: a quick scan and a deep scan. The quick scan is an accelerated form of scan that you can use to recover deleted files. Deep scan takes more time but provides better results. Deleted files that are not recovered through quick scan can be retrieved with the deep scan including data from formatted, corrupt, and severely damaged storage media.

How does Stellar Data Recovery work?

The way Stellar Data Recovery works is simple and easy and everybody can operate it with no prior technical knowledge. Here is how it works: First, download Stellar Data Recovery software and install and run it on your system. If you want to retrieve specific type of data make sure you select it under ‘Select What to Recover’ option. 

Next, under ‘Recover from’ select the desired location you want to recover lost or deleted data from. Click the scan option and results will be shown under ‘File Type’, ‘Tree View’ and Deleted List’. Select the files or folders you want to recover and click on Recover Button. Finally, you can save the recovered files in your desired location. 

What Type of files can Stellar Data Recovery recover?
