In the event of a system crash, concern for the data on the storage drive takes precedence over everything else. If it is the operating system that has crashed, there is almost 100 percent chances of the data being secure and undamaged. But when there is a virus attack, hard drive failure such as bad blocks and partition corruption, accidental deletion and formatting, the chances of the data being intact are remote. Though retrieving data is not completely impossible, it always depends on the state of the drive itself. If the data has been deleted or the drive accidentally formatted, the data can be recovered with almost 100 percent results provided the drive or medium is not overwritten by fresh data. But if the drive has a hardware failure, the recovery chances by the user himself becomes a major challenge. The drive needs to be repaired before the data can be recovered and this cannot be done by the user. He will have to get the data recovery done by professionals who are equipped with the tools and skills to change the hardware inside the drive. But in case of regular data loss, the user can get his data back within a few hours.
The initial screen has three tabs with four and five functions respectively
Stellar is a very well-known and highly-specialised company dealing with drive and data recovery solutions headquartered at Gurgaon in India since 1993. Apart from dealing with hard drive repairs and data recovery on a hardware and chip level, the company has also been developing data recovery software for the end user to take care of the recovery on the first level itself. Stellar Phoenix has been developing its Windows Data Recovery utility for a while now and its latest version 6 release can handle recovery from almost any storage medium available, be it optical media, hard drives, flash cards or RAID storage. The version 6 has three variants – Home, Professional and Technical. The Home version can do basic scanning and recovery from drives and media cards. The Professional version can recover from RAW media, exFAT partitions, optical drives and emails, apart from cloning drives and creating and recovering data from images. The Technical version is meant for the engineers and IT administrators in larger organisations. Using this version, one can additionally recover data from RAID drivers on servers and NAS devices and also from remote locations over the Internet or local network.
The drive recovery has four recovery methods to choose from
We received the Technical version, which includes all features of the Home and Professional versions. The utility is very simple to install and use. The user interface is very friendly and can be handled by novice users with great ease. To begin with the data recovery, one needs to confirm whether the drive (from which the data needs to be recovered) is working on the hardware front and is being detected by the operating system. If not, the data cannot be recovered by this utility and has to be sent to a professional data recovery service lab. The second criteria that is required for the recovery process is a spare medium such as an optical disk or an additional hard drive or USB storage with free storage space equal to or higher than the amount to be recovered from the damaged drive. Connect the drives and run the utility. The initial screen has three tabs – Data Recovery, Recovery from an Image and Advanced Options. The Data Recovery section has five sections.
This section deals with recovering data from hard drives or storage drives connected to the system This could be internal hard drives or ones connected to the USB interface. All one needs to do is click on the volume from which the data needs to be recovered and you will get an additional menu on the right of the screen. This includes the type of recovery mode to be initiated. You have options such as Quick Recovery (for a quick scan where you don’t want to wait too long for recently lost files), Deleted Recovery (to search for files that are deleted only), Advanced Recovery (for deep scanning of all files lost, corrupted and deleted and lastly, RAW Recovery (for formatted volumes and possibly overwritten data).
Scanning is fast. You get check boxes to choose which files and folders you want to recover
This option helps recover data from lost sessions, damaged sessions, medium to majorly scratched surfaces and in certain cases unrecognisable disks too. Caution: do not insert or try to recover data from discs that are even slightly cracked, as the data recovery procedure is intense, time consuming and can permanently damage the optical drive in case the disc shatters inside the drive. This option also supports Blu-ray discs.
Data from CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray media can be recovered
This option basically hunts for damaged, deleted and corrupted photos on the drive. The drive can be either the internal drive itself or an external USB pen drive or flash drive. This mode will save on time as it scans only for photos and not all other files.
