Stellar Launches Free Version of Data Recovery Software for Windows and Mac

By CIOReview | Thursday, July 16, 2020

The data recovery software allows users to recover up to 1GB of lost, deleted, or corrupted data like email data files, photos, videos and more from multiple storage devices.

FREMON, CA: Stellar, a data recovery, data erasure, and data migration solutions, today introduced a free version of its data recovery software that allows users to derive up to 1GB of data on both Windows and Mac operating systems. The simple but powerful tool recovers lost, corrupted, or deleted documents, email data files, photos, videos and more from PCs, laptops, external hard drives and USB sticks.

Stellar data recovery software can restore unlimited file types in all common lost-case scenarios, including accidental deletion, virus and malware attacks, formatting errors, partition losses, operating system crashes, and more.

Showcasing a simple interface that helps the users to recover data in three steps, the Stellar Free Data Recovery platform works in the following process: the user selects the desired storage drive and data type, then scan the drive and finally save the recovered files. The software also has preview capabilities, allowing users to view files before restoration. This enables users to determine which version of the file they are recovering so that they can restore only the needed data instead of restoring all and having to pass the process of getting rid of unnecessarily recovered files.

Other features include the ability to restore files from damaged or corrupt volumes, the ability to retrieve any data, from PowerPoint presentations to digital images, the power to retrieve data from BitLocker Encrypted Drives, and the possibility to recover data from formatted, removable media such as external drives and USB sticks. This is done with the help of a comprehensive interface that displays a modern design and simple DIY user experience.

"Nearly everyone has made the mistake of accidentally - and permanently - deleting a file they didn't mean to delete, and until now, the ability to recover those files once they've left the 'recycling bin' has only been available to those who can justify the cost of a dedicated solution, or those who have expert knowledge in data recovery," said Sunil Chandna, CEO at Stellar, "That's why we've released a simplified free version of our dedicated solution, enabling access to a single tool for recovery of all file formats."

Users who want to recover more than 1GB of data, or who encounters more complex data loss issues also have the option to upgrade to Stellar's Premium Data Recovery software that offers the power to recover unlimited data from a lost partition, recover data from a crashed system, recover data from encrypted drives, and repair corrupt videos and images. The Technician version of the software also possesses advanced RAID recovery capabilities that allow users to collect data from broken or failed RAID arrays.

Users can extract up to 1GB of data for free or upgrade to the Standard package for unlimited recovery for $49.99. The users can also upgrade to the Professional package for $79.99 for additional features like recovering files from lost partitions, unbootable system recovery support, optical media recovery and more.
