Stellar Data Recovery for Windows is an amazing data saviour.

It can recover data from your Windows PC, laptop, or removable storage devices with NTFS, FAT (FAT, FAT16, FAT32), or exFAT file system. However, a user needs to activate the software to unleash its full-fledged functionality.

The demo version of the software is available from the official website of Stellar Data Recovery. Just click the ‘Free Download’ button to download and install the software on your Windows PC. Run the DIY data recovery software to interact with its intuitive GUI. The trial version is for evaluation and does not offer the complete functionality. However, you can use the demo version to scan your storage drive wherein you lost your data. Once the scan is over, you can preview the recoverable files.
If the software lists all the files that you are looking for, go ahead and activate the software to save the recovered files.
TIP: Before you activate or close the software, use the ‘Save Scan’ option to save the scan information. You can load this scan information later and resume data recovery without the need to scan your PC or storage media again. This saves time and resources required to scan the drive all over again from scratch.
You do not need to uninstall or go through the entire download and installation steps again. We explained the software activation process next. Watch the video for a quick overview:
