What are Our Opinions?

Well, as far as the usability of the tool is concerned, we have to say that it works exactly as one would expect a Photo Recovery software to work. As we have been repeatedly been focussing on, it is one of the software tools that have an easy to use interface that does not need any kind of training period to get a hang of.
Speed is an area that we indeed were interested in dealing with the software. Ideally, the speed of scanning and recovery depends upon the size of the drive and the number of files. In our case, we scanned our drive of the size 390.6 GB and opted for a full scan. It took around two hours. We consider it quite ideal given the fact that the drive we had chosen had a large number of video and image files.
Yet another aspect we checked is the recoverability. You cannot be sure about a 100 percent recoverability of files in any software recovery tool. If your drive is formatted several times after the data has been lost, or the files have been overwritten quite a lot, it would reduce the chances of your recovery. However, a 90 percent data recovery is a good possibility. In case of formatted SD cards, the software can recover recently formatted SD card.
And yes, we came across one issue - once you begin a scan, you cannot pause it. You can only cancel the scanning and begin it from beginning in the next instance. There is no possibility of pausing and resuming the scan procedure. We would hope to find the functionality added quite soon.

The Verdict

Well, that was what we felt with the Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery Software. It is good at what it does. We definitely treat it a good option for recovering your photos, videos, and audio. Apart from the functionality to recover your deleted files, it also doubles up as an option to repair your JPG and video files. This additional functionality is what we treat as quite an added attraction.
