FileSearchy

#1 Post by I am Baas » Sat Jan 25, 2014 9:45 pm

FileSearchy is a quick, powerful and easy to use utility to search files on your computer. It provides real-time search by file name. Unlike other search tools with instant file search, it also allows searching by content string, date and size. FileSearchy supports many popular formats and highlights found text in file name and contents.

This is very handy. Unfortunately adds a bunch of registry keys to HKCR when registering filters (300+ reg keys, mostly empty ones).

FileSearchy at version 1.42, Change Log. There used to be a paid version (FileSearchy Pro) but it seems that now all Pro Features are available for Free. Compared to similar programs (Everything, Hddb, Index Your Files), FileSearchy uses significantly more memory.

License update: FileSearchy appears to have gone freeware (was free for personal use) - I don't see any notice about personal use only or way to purchase if you're a commercial entity.

This program came back on my radar recently when I grabbed a very big database of files and DocFetcher -- the program I usually use for this task -- flinched at the size. It's a bit clunky in places but definitely gets the job done.

Old thread update: program website seems to have gone offline so I'm not clear on the status of getting a commercial license so this might qualify as abandonware.

You can still get the program from Softpedia

You can't even buy it from softpedia, which has a "pro" version entry: http://www.softpedia.com/get/File-manag ... -Pro.shtml

It's still not portable.
