Did you lose your data due to accidental deletion, formatting, and drive corruption?
Don’t worry. The lost data remains inside the storage media – hard drives, SSDs, pen drives, SD cards, or other flash drives – and therefore can be recovered, unless it’s overwritten.
Data recovery software can provide the easiest, DIY solution for data recovery in such cases.
Fortunately, we have some of the most advanced data recovery software for Windows with user-friendly interface and options to restore photos, videos, documents, audio, etc. in almost all file formats.
In this post, we will review Stellar Data Recovery Standard— a DIY data recovery software for recovering lost or deleted files from Windows PC and supported external storage media.
Stellar Data Recovery Standard Review
Stellar Data Recovery Standard software comes from the house of Stellar®—a data care brand with over two and a half decade history in developing solutions for data recovery, file repair, mailbox conversion, and data erasure needs.
The software offers a simple intuitive interface to navigate the features and recover data from Windows devices in 3 steps – select, scan, recover.
The software can recover lost or deleted photos, videos, documents, emails, archived folders, and several hundred other file formats in just a few clicks. You can select a particular folder (such as Desktop or Recycle Bin) or the entire drive volume for the scan.
The software also natively recognizes and supports RAW drive volumes.
It features two scan modes—
- Quick Scan: It’s the default scan mode. You can use it when you need to recover recently deleted data from a Windows PC
- Deep Scan: Use when you need to recover data from a severely corrupt and formatted storage media or deleted partition. You can enable deep scan either before running the scan or after Quick Scan—when scan results are not satisfactory.
Yes, the software also helps you get back files from a missing or deleted partition in no time.
After Scan, the results are displayed in the left pane. Here, you can filter the scan results based on ‘Tree View’, ‘File Type’ or view only ‘Deleted Files’.
Just click on any tab and then click on the folder to list the containing files and folder. The Stellar Data Recovery Standard software also allows you to see the file preview during and after the scan.
Just click on any photo, video, document, or audio file to preview it before saving the files.
The preview feature helps you to identify the correct files and check their integrity. If you are not able to find a particular file, use the search bar at top right.
Finally, you can select the files or folders you wish to recover and save them at any desired location. You can choose to save the recovered files on an internal or external drive volume with overwrite protection. The protection doesn’t allow you to save the recovered files to the same volume or on the drive from where data is being recovered. This protects your data from corruption and getting permanently lost.
How to Use Stellar Data Recovery Standard Software
After installing and launching the Stellar Data Recovery Standard software, follow these 3 simple steps:
Step 1: Select what file types you wish to scan followed by a click on the ‘Next’ button
Step 2: Select the folder location or drive volume from the list and begin the scan
Step 3: Select the files to see their preview and then save them at your desired location

Pricing and Plan
You can download and evaluate the Stellar Data Recovery Standard for free. After the scan, you can also see the file preview. But to save the recovered files, you need a license key for $49.99 from Stellar®. The key remains valid for a year after which you need to renew it.
The Internet is full of data recovery software. Each promises to recover data from a Windows PC and supported storage media but lacks required file format support. Many also lack a clean UI design, which plays an important role in data recovery for those who aren’t much familiar with computing.
Stellar Data Recovery Standard software overcomes all those problems and offers an effortless data recovery experience for Windows users. With its wizard-like interface, anyone can restore their lost and deleted files in three simple steps as mentioned earlier in the post. Plus, it supports over 300 file types and all kinds of Windows supported storage media such as hard drive, SSDs, SD cards, thumb drives, etc.
