"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.
