SMF is a powerful file search and duplicate finding tool that uses hashing (MD5, CRC32 or SHA1) to determine similarity. Includes a host of filter capabilities and a result-reporting tool, with which you can sub-filter the result set according to your needs.

The program lets you search by last modified date, keyword, or file attribute; pictures of a certain filesize, dimension, or metadata info; MP3s by length, author, or bitrate; and duplicate pictures that have a certain filesize or dimension.

Bill, thanks for the feedback! I've never tested it on such a large amount of files, because I usually apply the "Pre-Filter" by size to speed up the search dramatically (e.g. > 2 MB). I'm quite sure this issue can be fixed by chopping the data to be analyzed into smaller portions. Will do some research and for sure fix it for v1.7 :)...
Best Regards

Re-release v1.6 with minor changes. The bug mentioned above should be fixed. Best Regards

WizFile v2.05 Updated

billon on 5 Sep 2018
  • 17MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 5 Sep 2018
  • Suggested by smaragdus

WizFile is a near-instant search utility for finding files and folders. Results can be sorted by name, size or date and file type (audio, video, image, compressed etc.). The program supports wildcards, AND/OR operations and much more.

The program rapidly searches NTFS-formatted drives using the Master File Table feature so it's ready for use very quickly after launch. The program also supports non-NTFS formatted drives and network shares (e.g. //servername/sharename), monitoring for file changes and making search results visible in real-time.

UltraFileSearch Lite v5.2.0 Updated

UltraFileSearch Lite quickly finds files, folders and text on your local, network, or external media. The program allows you to specify several file masks and drives/folders at the same time; it is able to sort them according to their properties (e.g. modified date) and find files that contain one or more specific words or sentences.

This utility does not use background indexing. "Standard" (shareware) edition has additional features.

No mention of the portable standard edition?

We should encourage all portable developers, this is even more important in an age of server apps which are little better than shortcuts or are worse.

Yes it is a portable payware version but a mention should be okay?

Something like "Alternatively a portable payware edition gives full standard features and can be used in business and for profit environ"

Whilst I do have a commercial licence for this, my personal favourite search utility is File Locator Pro.

SearchMyFiles v2.85 Updated

billon on 8 Aug 2018

SearchMyFiles is a powerful alternative to the standard Windows search. It allows you to easily find files by wildcard, last modified/created/last accessed time, file attributes, content (text or binary search), and file size. The program is non-indexing, meaning it searches the drive directly, which is often slower but more accurate.

Can also be used to detect duplicate files via the "Search Mode" drop-down box.

I have tried and used several search apps before and was not very impressed but as soon as I saw that this product was from NirSoft I knew I had to try it. NirSoft makes so many great apps that I use a lot, its difficult to say something new about them due to the fact that just about everything they make works great and is pretty awesome overall. One thing is 4sure the native Micro$oft search engine is close to worthless, so just about anything will be an improvement.
