    "So MUCH better than Win7 Search"

    March 28, 2012   |   By cpaomk2

    Version: Agent Ransack (64-bit) 1.7.3.762

    Pros

    Simple, clean, does what it says. Windows 7 Search wastes more screen space than this takes up. FREEEE! Thank you developers.

    Cons

    I haven't figured out how to search for (only) File Folders. I can search for file extensions (just *.txt and so on) but limiting it to just folders is a no go. Pretty minor, it still shows them, but I think it would save time to be able to limit it.

    Summary

    Was good for previous versions of Windows. Given recent "improvements" (BUGS) it is necessary for current ones.

    "Best alternative to defective Windows 7 search"

    November 04, 2010   |   By PixelMetrics

    Version: Agent Ransack (64-bit) 1.7.3.762

    Pros

    This was the best alternative I could find to the unreliable Windows 7 search. Quickly finds text in file contents.

    Cons

    Wish it had a folder tree view or worked inside Windows Explorer.

    "Excellent program - easy to use, quick, powerful"

    September 29, 2010   |   By butforthegraceofgod

    Version: Agent Ransack (64-bit) 1.7.3.762

    Pros

    It's like search used to be in the good old days!

    Cons

    The Dates preferences seem to be preserved from one search to the next. Even if you click the 'Clear All' button, you have to do a search with the clear settings before these are stored. I had expected any new search to have clear Dates settings.

    Summary

    Very good - far better than the built-in Search in Windows 7 - which I have removed !

    "Excellent search capabilities without indexing"

    July 05, 2010   |   By sparkymachine--2008

    Version: Agent Ransack (64-bit) 1.7.3.762

    Pros

    Easy to use but powerful
    Comprehensive features

    Cons

    None for me

    Summary

    The software has many capabilities from a simple 'characters in file name' search to pattern matching within files and other things I have not used but others might. Can't fault the product - it is unobtrusive - it only runs when you want it to and doesn't interfere with anything and has no system overheads unlike NTFS indexing does.
