UltraSearch searches thousands of files almost instantly. File name searches narrow as they are typed, as well as with wildcards such as "*.exe". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, as well as access to Explorer's own context menu. You can exclude folders, files, or file-types by providing an "exclude" filter and results can be exported as text, RTF, HTML, CSV and Excel file, or printed.

The program works with NTFS-formatted drives to search without needing to first create an index. The program works directly with a feature of the file system called the Master File Table to give results on thousands of files in moments.

The link leads to an executable installer, not to a zip package.
And last and worst: the license says it's a 30 day trial Software.
So seems it is neither fully portable nor freeware.

Sorry I didn't notice that there's an option for the zip file below the executable installer one.
And the license reads that it's freeware.
So discard my previous comment and accept my apologies, please.

carten: No problem -- updated the extract instructions to be more clear

The program says that I need administration rights to perform a search, Is it that correct?

I agree with Jan_smit, I do not like this kind of portability requiring administrative rights. At least a flag should signal in clear this requirement in the presentation of the program.

It requires admin rights and NTFS file system because it needs low level access to read the NTFS Master File Table. I don't have permission, maybe a mod will edit the entry.

The latest version (1.7.1) is stealth. Does not write to registry. There is no 'JAM Software' entry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\

It detects partitions but doesn't detect other HDDs on the system. I have a separate HDD for file storage and this app can't "see" it. I looked through all the menus but couldn't find any way to correct this. (I tried it on another machine with one HDD and partitions for file storage and it works fine.)

@Midas
Not anymore

v1.81

Midas 2013-10-08 12:11

[I knew there was a banner add somewhere ;) ] Thanks for that, I am Baas.

@MnX: To get US to do your bidding, you probably have to select the 'Auto-Check new drives' option from the Options menu...

v1.81

What's the advantage of this over Everything? The license is also ad-supported.

v2.0

Should there be one?

v2.0

Nh 2014-12-20 06:05

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

v2.0

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