Track down missing files with this powerful search tool.

Despite our best intentions, most of us don't do a great job of keeping the contents of our computers well-organized. And usually this isn't a problem, until we're trying to find something. That one file....And we're pretty sure it had that one word in it....And we could have sworn it was in My Documents....But it seems to have vanished into thin air. Before you declare your missing file a victim of mysterious deletion, try FileLocator Pro. This powerful search utility has weapons in its arsenal that the standard Windows search can only dream of.

FileLocator Pro's interface isn't fancy, and that's a good thing; it's plain, intuitive, and easy to navigate. The major search parameters are arranged in tabs. There are the usual features--search by location, document type, text within the document, etc.--but FileLocator Pro has plenty of other search options. You can specify date ranges during which the file was created, modified, and last accessed, search within compressed and archived files, and use Boolean search options and file hashing. The program is easy enough for novices to use, but with the more-advanced features that experienced users will expect. In fact, the program can be set to regular or expert mode, allowing easily confused new users to hide the more complex features. The program's Help file is well-written and thorough. Overall, we think FileLocator Pro is a great choice for anyone who needs a powerful search tool.

FileLocator Pro has a 30-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
