'Raw Recovery' is one of the four scanning options available in 'Drive Recovery' module of Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery Professional. The 'Raw Recovery' scan is good at looking through each sector of the selected drive to recover traces of lost or deleted information. It reads file signatures to recover data. All the recovered files are listed in the main interface according to their corresponding file types.
'Raw Recovery' is usually the last resort if your drive is severely corrupt. In order to use 'Raw Recovery' feature of Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery, follow the procedure given below:
Start Stellar Phoenix Windows Data Recovery. On the main interface, click 'Drive Recovery'
The 'Select Volume to Recover Data'
section displays a list of all logical volumes in your system. Choose a volume in this list for recovery and then click 'Raw Recovery'
on the flying pane. (You can click 'File List'
below 'Raw Recovery'
to select the desired file types for which the scan will be performed.)
The software starts scanning the selected logical volume and lists recovered files in a 'Classic Tree'
grouped by file types.
When you select a particular folder in the tree, all files in that folder are displayed in the bottom-right pane. You can click a file to see its preview in the top-right pane.
Select the files you need to recover by marking check boxes against the folder or file names. Click 'Recover'
The 'Select Destination'
dialog appears on your screen. Provide the desired destination path and other options. Click 'OK'
