Editors' Review

This small utility searches for files and folders in archives that are off-limits to the Windows Find function. Archive Searcher can sift through ZIP, RAR, ACE, and CAB volumes. In our testing, the program performed well, using little memory and searching quickly. The interface is clear and convenient: you simply specify a start folder, a filename to search for, and the type of archive to search. Unfortunately, the program can't search all types of archives at once, nor can it search for content inside a file. Also, a bit surprisingly, there is no feature for opening or dragging individual files from the results list--you have to open the whole archive. Archive Searcher works only 10 days in trial mode, and we thought $29.95 was a bit steep for such a modest program. Businesses can get by with Archive Searcher, but they may be happier with a more full-featured application.

"Ok, but not great"

It's pretty, simple, fast, and accurate. You can search with special characters (* and ?).


You can't extract the files directly from the program, nor can you print or export to a spreadsheet the result list. The Help section isn't of very much help: it only tells you how to operate the program (which is very simple, so how-to = useless) and how to buy the program.
