Phoenix 2.0 Data Recovery
Stellar Information Systems has released the next incarnation of its data recovery software, Phoenix Macintosh v2.0. The program salvages data from damaged, deleted and corrupted volumes, and supports HFS file systems including HFS+, HFSX and HFS Wrapper. Features of the program include the ability to create disk images, and an Advanced Search function, which increases the odds of detecting data. Phoenix also sports a file recovery tool, which can restore over 50 file types such as movies and applications; by using Enhanced Photo Recovery, owners can retrieve RAW images from cameras by Canon, Nikon, Olympus and others.
The latest edition of the software uses a new underlying engine, and is said to scan drives up to three times faster. A variety of licenses are available, starting at $130 for a single user; Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later is required.
