Index Your Files v5.0.2.6

Checker on 12 Dec 2015
  • 1MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Dec 2010
  • Suggested by Rafael Castro

Index Your Files allows you to search through all your files or folders on local or networked drives. Searching can be done by name, date, size, location etc., and boolean operators are available to to perform multiple keyword searches. You can invoke Windows Explorer context menus on found files to perform operations such as drag/drop, copy, rename, delete etc. It also includes internal viewers for text, HTML and image files.

As the name implies, the program must index the area before searching, but afterward searches almost instantly.

I liked the program and am trying to use it for indexing a network drive. I'm indexing through a DSL connection that occasionally drops. The index takes about 10 hours for 1.5 million files and the drive size looks on the order of 2.5 TB.

When it drops the connection during this time - is there any way to recover and go on from where the drop occurred?

For a scheduled index - is this incremental or does it start over from no indexing?

Multi Path Files Finder 1.00 is my preferred file search utility. Reasonably small, flexible, and efficient. Does not use a (undesireable, for me) index database; but is fast nonetheless -- Searched C:\ and all subdirectories for "*.exe" files -- found 1,774 files in 15 seconds.

A great speedy file manager. There are a couple of things that need to be added to make it really usable:
1) Make it open in the folder that was accessed when it was closed last,
2) Provide drag and drop.
Otherwise, it's the only file manager I have found that works when launched as Local System user.
I notice that the current version is 3 years old (2009).

I've installed this program and now I cannot delete it because ever it's in use by system, even in secure mode! I needed to use File Assassin to delete it. It's only with me? ( Sorry by the bad english )

AlephX on 2007-03-28 14:10

I tried to delete it to see if it was locked, but I had no problem... I don´t know what is the reason of that strange behaviour. The only thing I can think is that you "have installed the program"... I did not install it, but I used it as portable

I unzipped the _files.zip, as suggested. I also redownloaded it and removed it normally... I don't know why it's in use at my other test.
