FileBadger - detailed filename and attribute search

#1 Post by webfork » Sat May 09, 2020 9:21 pm

Posting about this as the program can search for crazy specific file details, though not file content. Supports search profiles and results export to a spreadsheet.

  • Find files in multiple folders on any disk or network share, using MollieSoft File Query Language (MFQL).
  • Query file properties using AND, OR, NOT, and parentheses to any level of complexity.
  • Specify multiple top-level search folders and include or exclude these as desired in any search.
  • Use Simple Search (field controls) or use full-blown MFQL boolean queries; simple search just builds an appropriate MFQL query.
  • Use regular expressions for file/folder name matches (optional).
  • Help menus assist in building MFQL or regular expressions.
  • Easily save and reuse your favorite search queries.
Requirements: Windows 8.1 or Windows 10, Internet connection at startup (you can disable it after first run).

License: Adware - I normally avoid software with ads, but these aren't very intrusive and there's a lot of functionality here.
