It seems to always create a "\UltraFileSearch\Exports" folder in "My Documents". The folder is empty, but this isn't exactly what I'd consider stealth.

Are you sure you're downloading the portable version? It does create that Exports folder, but not in My Documents and alongside ULTRAFILESARCH.exe . You're doing something wrong.

Re-downloaded the zip file, and the contents (exe file) are different now from the first one I downloaded. Now it no longer creates anything in the "My Documents" folder, and several ini files have been created in the app's folder for its settings. MUCH BETTER. I'm not quite sure how the original zip I downloaded had the wrong exe in it...

New version

Ultra File Search 1.4 on my Win XP works well, is simple, and is blazingly fast.

I love it.

Yes, I like Windows 7 Search when it looks for something in My outlook mail or my web history.

But If I am just looking for a file or files with wildcard / date modified / size -- just like Windows XP used to do, ultrafilesearch does it very well, and shows me what folder it is in.

This standalone executable stays on my flash drives and on all of my PCs

Nice program. Easy to edit .INI files too

Wow.. this finds files very fast!

For version, the lite version is freeware. The standard version is shareware.

Shouldn't the entry be renamed to Ultra File Search Lite? BTW, v2.1.1.12019 is available.

I have been using AgentRansack for many years and it does a great job. I recommend it over this lite version.

THIS one is a keeper! It detects my storage HDD whereas the other app I tried doesn't. (UltraSearch)

@Lyon11111 - I looked at AgentRansack. It hasn't been updated since March of 2010, and it isn't portable. Pass.

At first, this program seems to be OK. BUT LOOKING AT THE PICTURES ON THE WEBSITE, it is unsatisfactory. When searching for text in a file, it only shows only the file name, and not a preview of the text found. I agree with Lyon11111, AgentRansack is far superior to this program.

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.
