Stellar Data Recovery allows you to search for specific files after scanning the selected storage media and listing all recoverable files in a tree. With 'Find Now' option, you do not require wandering around the list of scanned items for searching the desired files to be recovered.

To find specific files in the scan results, use the given procedure:

 After the drive scan is finished, you will see a 'Search Files' box at the top-right of the interface screen.

 Type in a part of the file name, or complete file name, or file type in this box. For specifying multiple entries, use semicolons. Click 'Find Now' button next to the 'Search File' box.

 The first file that satisfies the criteria is shown as highlighted in the file list. You can either click 'Find Now' button again to navigate to the next file that meets the criteria.

Please make sure that you have saved scan in internal drive of the system.

Once you click on "Load Scan" option in our software, it will show the saved scan file. If it was saved in any external drive then connect that drive with the system and check saved scan file under "Load Scan" option in software.
