Program doesn't work for me. Regardless of the drive(s) selected or the search parameters (file names) entered, the program always instantly returns "0 items found" when the "Search" button is clicked. Something tells me that there is a missing or incompatible DLL. Them be my thoughts...

In v3.0 File Seeker is indexing all partitions at his start, and creates a database ("files.qdb" = 25mb! (on my PC)).
And on every startup all my partitions are checked for searching, so i have to uncheck a lot of them everytime.
It also runs in the backround all the time until you uncheck in the options that it should update the database automatic.
File Seeker 2.1 is great, v3.0 sucks.

Try Avafind, not free but fantastic and it's portable too. Light and powerfull.

From what I can see, Avafind hasn't been updated since 2003 and only indexes filenames, not within archives.

Having said that, I've had problems with File Seeker v3. Ive started a thread in the forum: http://portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=3390

I've just downloaded the latest version from their website and continue to have a memory error come up anytime I click on their tools button. Aside from that it seems to work okay. It does create a database file that's about 41 MB but I have a 200Gb HD and a 650G NAS that it searches through so I'm thinking that's not too bad. I'm using a 1Gb USB stick so it doesn't impact it's space much. There's two things I like about this app that I personally hadn't seen in some others I've tried. The append to search and the ability to use context menus to 'move to', 'copy to', and delete files. But, even that has a problem. It won't act on all files that have been highlighted. Seems like a work in progress.

I thought that at some point I was able to use FileSeeker to search inside OpenOffice formats, but perhaps I'm imagining that... or dreaming. I see in the Filters tab of options, that odt (etc.) are not listed in the supported compressed files; and then it would also have to be able to search .xml.

Should this be working---is it returning 0 files found erroneously? Or is it truly not supported?

(Sorry, meant to add that this is version 3.5.1.)

Looks good but Agent Ransack File Search is better. I am not sure if it is portable, but probably it is, because it is listed here http://www.slyck.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=22621

Agent Ransack not portable as seeks to update Registry on install

The best, too bad it's dead. Features like Favorite folders and search by creation date, would be great

Gmacri 2008-12-13 12:28

The original website seems to have been sold.

I have found the 3.5.1 version and have linked to the webpage in the entry also here http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-SOFTWARE/System/File-management/Windows-Portable-Applications-Portable-File-Seeker.shtml

I have also found a version 3.5.2 it can be found here http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/Qytec-File-Seeker.shtml

I have not tested or tried this yet.
