Editors' Review

The built-in Windows search utility typically does a decent job of finding the occasional misplaced file, but it's not really made for heavy-duty searching. Agent Ransack, however, is. This highly customizable tool lets users search with a number of parameters that aren't a part of the Windows search utility, and it works quickly to boot.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive. Users can search file names or the text within files; specify the file size; search within a range of dates that the file was modified, created, or last accessed; and select whether they want to match cases. The program shows the search results in one pane and search statistics--the number of items searched and found, and the length of the search--in another. We found that Agent Ransack repeatedly located files that the Windows search tool did not, and we didn't have to wait a terribly long time for the results. We were also impressed by the fact that although Agent Ransack is easy to use, it comes with a very thorough and well-written Help file. It's suitable for novices who know simply that they want a more powerful search tool than what Windows provides, but it's also a good choice for more-advanced users, or those who would like to learn more about searching. Overall, we think that Agent Ransack is a good choice for just about everybody.

Agent Ransack installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
