This feature makes this product the best photo recovery software available in the market. It gives the application extended flexibility and increases its utility.

Works Smoothly with Media >6TB Storage

Most of the free photo recovery tools available in the market fail to work properly on devices that have large storage capacities. However, the picture recovery software from Stellar helps you to recover recently or permanently deleted pictures from media with size as huge as 6TB and more.

Preview Scan Results in Different Ways

Preview the found multimedia files in three different ways - File Type, Tree View, and Deleted List. Sorted and easy-to-view scan results help in quickly identifying the relevant photos, videos, and audio files for recovery. File Type groups according to photos, videos and audio. Tree View allows you to navigate to the media file location.

Create Image of Selected Media & Recover

With time and continuous usage, internal and external drives/storage media develop bad sectors. This kind of damage often makes data stored on the device inaccessible. With Stellar photo recovery software, you can create a sector-by-sector image of the entire or a selected range of media. This image can then be used to recover data by using the software.
