INSTALLATION. Deleted File Recovery or Time Machine recovery

Nothing special to be honest, straight install and no extra restart of the system.
Initializing of the software takes a moment as it scans in the background for available storage.

Enhanced Interface & User-Friendliness






Overall it is really easy to perform any kind of recovery. The sidebar in the main interface offers some guidelines and options are available. This help-functions make it a true life saver. Well data saver is probably a better discription.

Time Machine Backup Drive Recovery

Although a Time Machine Backup is supposed to house your critical data so that you can refer to it in emergencies, the drive on which you store the backup can get structurally damaged. If unfortunately, you’ve faced such a situation, don’t waste your precious time in looking for useless solutions. The software treats a Time Machine drive as a normal hard drive and presents the same user-friendly options to salvage all your crucial data. Alongside Time Machine data recovery, the software now supports Apple Time Capsule on sparse bundle disk images.

Indeed is scanning of a 750 Gb Time Machine backup piece of cake. It really doesn’t take a long time for Quick Recovery to do a full scan. Only a few minutes for the scan, the latter build of directory entries takes a lot longer then the initial scan itself. Still this is an important update
of this program as your Time Machine mistimes will be your last resort when you’re in trouble. The ability to recover from this in our case external TM-Backups is a true benefit.


Encrypted Disk Recovery

If you have a password protected hard drive that has been damaged / corrupted / file deleted, don’t think you’ve lost the data on it forever. Recovering data from encrypted hard disks is super easy for this brilliant application. Just connect the drive to your Mac and launch the software. It will then ask you to enter the password to unlock the drive. Once you enter the password & unlock it, you can proceed to recover deleted, formatted and inaccessible files. But you should exercise caution to remember your drive password. If you fail to unlock the drive, you won’t be able to scan & recover deleted files from it.



In the lost photo test, it recovered 100 percent of the photos. Don’t forget that 1% less recovery result amounts to 10Gb on a 1 TB harddisk, and this 10gb might just be your most precious photo’s or data.
It performs really well recovering lost data, but it is slow !

If you’re recovering data on a 1TB HDD drive, the scan takes days and the recovery takes days as well.Then again, if THIS software will bring back your data, it is well worth spending time and effort in doing so.


STELLAR MAC DATA RECOVERY is what it claims to be, a great data recovery tool which is easy to use and produces high recovery results between 95-100% depending on the format. It’s fast and scores well, only the file-building of Time Machine takes some time
to present its folders.
The software’s additional data management features and extensive compatibility can help your most challenging recovery to be more successful.
