Hello Rafael,

I've just discover you app, nice job.

One missing feature for me is the ability to have more structured search criteria. Is it possible to add the NOT operator ? Meaning that I want to search for files not containing a string ?

As an example, I've a lot of documents to read. When it's done, I had "°°" to the document title to show it's done. So I would like to have the ability to search for all documents that contain a certain string "report*.doc" for example but not containing the string "°°". Hope it's clear enough.

Regards

I add it to the list of improvements.
Thank you for the suggestion.

Your application received many awards.
Perhaps it's a good idea to mention your website:
http://www.indexyourfiles.com/index.html
Looking at all the awards, i clicked at http://www.snapfiles.com/reviews/index- ... files.html for the review and what do i see:
It's shareware and you can download a 90 day trial version. Snapfiles is a great information source for a lot of people, but perhaps they are wrong now? Rafael, can you comment on that please? Is this information still up to date? i would like to know before i try this application.

I comment you.

IYF Revolution! is Dead.
I decided to do her free and to change his name
The vesion IYF - X ! is the version Revolution! with some improvements and Freeware.
This version not this finished, I have to add two very important improvements:
* Search for EXIF and search for ID-TAG mp3.
* Search for texts Unicodes inside the files.

Index Your Files - X ! does not contain any malware, or similar, and does not write to the registry.

Any doubt or suggestion are very received.

:)

Awards ( some ) are sent automatically for some softtware's pages.
You can publish a program that add 1 + 1 and they give you 5 stars.
I am very modest, I like to leave the rewards in another one page. :roll:

Rafael, thanks! It's now clear for everyone that your software is free.
You have a very professional website. I tried IYF and agree with Xpect. Very good software.
Thanks for sharing it with us 8)

Is there a way to do a full-index and store that in the db and when querying it will just query the db and hence provide a lot faster answers than crawling through all the individual files?

well, I have a fully encrypted stick and carry quite a few docs with me (several hundred) and am looking for a full indexed database ;)

So far I like your tool really good except crawling through all the docs takes always some time - I realize that creating a fully indexed database is quite complex :)

A fantastic prog!

Only discovered it today, but I'm seriously impressed. Why is it still alpha? And why is it not in the database here?

Respect to the programmer!

It is in the database here.

Raphael used to distribute two different versions of the program. I believe that when he combined them into one, he adopted the "Alpha" designation.

However, I've been using the program(s) for quite awhile without any issues. Perhaps, when he makes his next release, he'll drop the "Alpha."

Regards,
Dan

Ah - I had made a search for IYF which brought no results in the DB ...

I love small and efficient progs! And no-install :-) Comes in handy for use in the office, where one can't install software.

A nice feature would be to save searches, and a switch to exclude subfolders on the spot, to speed things even more.

Continue the great work, Raphael!

Question to the portable experts here: how do you manage to enter a relative path, to create an index for contents of your stick?

Didn't find a way, and as drive letters change, any search results will be for the last-entered drive-letter of the index.

If it's not possible yet - might be a good idea for the next version!

Thanks
Chris
