UltraSearch Free is a fast and feature-rich search tool, building a searchable listing of drive content in seconds. File name searches narrow as they are typed and support wildcards such as "*.txt". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, along with access to Explorer's own context menu.

The program also includes a slower, non-indexing file content search that will look inside files, including a variety of Office (DOCX, PDF, PST, ODT) and compressed files (ZIP, 7Z, RAR). It is recommended that you provide a small set of files to check e.g. ext:DOCX content:portable to look for the word "portable" in MS Word files.

Other search options include AND / OR operations, regular expressions, a custom exclude filter for path, files, parent folders, etc., and results can be exported to text and CSV.

Runs on:Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Administrator rights
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware/Liteware
How to extract: Download the "Portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch UltraSearch.exe.

I download v3.0 x32 using direct link provided here (https://downloads.jam-software.de/ultrasearch_free/UltraSearch-x86-Free-Portable.zip) and it writes to file: C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\UltraSearch Free\MainForm_RibbonOptions.xml.
If you move this file "MainForm_RibbonOptions.xml" to app's folder it will be used from this location and so UltraSearch free will become full portable!

update: I just found that link https://downloads.jam-software.de/ultrasearch_free/UltraSearch-x86-Free-Portable.zip (for the x32 version) is NOT valid any more!!!

I was testing some alternatives to HDDB and this was listed as an alternative.

I briefly tested this and it's a memory eater. Uses around 500MB RAM and used a lot of disk I/O on first boot.

Stick to HDDB or Everything.

I think you're right. Let's hope is just a bug that's gonna be fixed in the next version.

v2.0 does not save settings (no entries are made in Settings.xml).

Should there be one?
