Advanced file search

Hone your searches with this worthy search program.

This free program offers search capabilities that surpass Windows built-in search functions. It took a visit to the Help menu to learn how to properly search for specific files, but it was worth the extra time.

Super Finder's user interface isn't extraordinary, but it's easy enough to understand. Tabs let you navigate between date and time configurations and general setup options. You can search by file or folder name, and choose the file extensions that you want to exclude in the search. To narrow down or expand the search, you can select the drives that you want to include, as well as any subfolders. More advanced settings let us specify dates and time parameters and file attributes. We had to visit the Help menu to figure out how to perform a wild card search for a keyword, but our research paid off because as soon as we entered the proper asterisk and keyword, the program quickly pulled up all related files according to our specified criteria. Large command buttons on the interface let us manage specific files. With the simple click of a button, we were able to open, delete, rename, and check the properties of a selected file.

If you're willing to spend a little time with this program, the fast search results it worth the time. We highly recommend this search program for all user levels.
