Apart from that, if you’ve already created a disk image of your partition, you can recover data from it as well.
How long does scanning take?
Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Professional facilitates two scanning option i.e. Quick Scan and Deep Scan. Quick Scan, as the name suggests, quickly scans the hard drive while Deep Scan thoroughly scans the hard drive sector by sector to locate the trace of missing files. If after performing Quick Scan you didn’t find the desired file, you can switch to Deep Scan. Deep Scan is based on file signature matching and generally takes more time as compared to Quick Scan.
The software shows the status of scanning progress i.e. it gives details such as Files Found, Time Elapsed, Time Left, etc. Moreover, during scanning, you can preview recoverable files and if you find the desired file, you can skip the scanning process. The software took 47 minutes to scan my Samsung hard drive (500GB, NTFS), although this may be varied by a few minutes as it depends on file types and the condition of the storage media.
The software is indeed a smart tool.
Once the scanning is complete, the software lets you view and sort recoverable files in three different modes namely – ‘File Type’, ‘Tree View’, and ‘Deleted List’. After viewing the files, all you have to do is just select the required files, click on ‘Recover’ and specify the saving location.
Using Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery – Professional you can retrieve data when the Master Boot Record is damaged or your system fails to boot. Under such circumstances, run the bootable disc (part of the software) to gain access to the system and then run the software to retrieve all your files.
