UltraSearch Free is a feature-rich search tool that searches thousands of files almost instantly. File name searches narrow as they are typed, as well as with wildcards such as "*.txt". Additional information like file size and last change date are present, as well as access to Explorer's own context menu.

The program also includes non-indexing, slower file content search is available 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 smallset 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.

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!!!

v3.0

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).

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