Editors' review

Despite its dull presentation, this utility effectively enhances Windows' search functionality. ESP is a self-executable file, and its straightforward interface is simple enough for most users to figure out. The program allows you to specify search directories and folders, and matches will begin appearing with the first character you type in the Search field. ESP automatically displays the first 10 search results, or you can click the button to show all results. As with the standard Windows' search tool, files can be opened from within the program. The small interface includes a list of recently accessed files that can be hidden using the View menu. Also included is a tool for more advanced users to create customized associations to open files with a certain program. ESP worked well in our tests, and we were pleased to find it was effective searching both local and network drives. The fully functional demo version proved to be a fast and efficient way of searching files that's suitable for the novice, but with a few extras geared toward the more advanced user.

    "It knows what I want!"

    Version: ESP 1

    Summary

    I'm a software developer and I work on lots of different projects all the time. I have to deal with lots of different files all over our network all day long and ESP makes getting to them a snap. I know what they are called and I just start typing and I have the file...just like they say...No Point-n-Grunt! The customizable hotkeys are really great too. We use ClearCase for revision control and right from ESP I can checkin/checkout/version-tree a file. This really helps my productivity. Well done!

    "ESP will change how you interface with your information"

    Version: ESP 1

    Summary

    I'm a software developer and work with hundreds of files all over my PC and local network. ESP allows me to access any one of those files in 2-3 seconds. I can't beleive what a difference ESP makes. It gives me the file I'm looking for in just a few key strokes.

    Try this app and soon you'll be hooked, just like me!
