Everything

CNET Editors' review

This small software application bypasses Windows search with a lightning quick interface and real-time results for all of the files and folders in your local hard drive or any subsection of it. The software doesn't do much more than search, but its efficiency, effectiveness, stability, and low system resource usage make it a keeper utility.

The software is split into two main controls: the search box and the results page. When you first run Everything, it will create an index of all the files and folders on your machine. Unless you have millions of files, the index will be created before you know it. Searching is done in real time, as you type--i.e. the search term "rad" returns 379 objects, "radio" returns 160, and "radiohead" returns 71, all instantly.

The results screen can display seven different fields: Name, Path, Size, Last Write Time, Creation Time, Last Access Time, and Attributes. Sorting by any field takes a little longer than searching, but only slows down noticeably when you sort more than 1,000 results.

Everything also lets users connect to HTTP, FTP, or ETP (Everything Transfer Protocol) servers to allow remote searches, but its functionality is mostly singular--searching your local PC very quickly with minimal resources, and it accomplishes that well. If you've never struggled with Windows search before, you might pass Everything by; if your computer is a disorganized mess with files all over the place, Everything might be a wonderful gift.

    "When it works it's great...but!"

    March 8, 2014  |   By GamerKing

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    It does what it promises, and it's very fast.

    Cons

    Mine developed a strange error..when I contacted developer they didn't even acknowledge my email. I guess that's the problem with free software--you get it AS IS..or in this case, AS IT ISN'T!

    Summary

    I wish someone would write a more stable version, especially someone who is prepared to support it.

    "Don't know how I functioned before I found Everything."

    August 2, 2013  |   By pfhgjk0

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Ultra simple to use. Fast. What else is there? It does a simple valuable task exceptionally well.

    Cons

    I have only enhance wishes - no cons.

    Summary

    This utility will change the way you name your files (so that the names relate to the content) so that you can more easily find what you're looking for. You'll also stop worrying about where you save something - Everyting will find it for you!

    "Good product"

    July 26, 2013  |   By ns23

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    was easy and quick to install,i directly installed it from publishers website,i am tired of using CNET downloader which try to sneak in a bundled product like a toolbar if user is not attentive during install.
    Search is fast and worked like a charm,was able to find a file from my 2004 archive which i coudn't find using windows search.

    Cons

    havent found so far

    "Stunningly fast indexing"

    June 10, 2013  |   By deke7777

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    As you type into the interface, the program locates the key words. It is so much quicker than Windows

    Cons

    May not give you other search options as does Windows. Nonetheless, this is a small price to pay for celerity of action

    Summary

    Nothing should be condemned if it is free. This is a very useful tool indeed

    "Best Search Program Ever!"

    June 1, 2013  |   By mauries

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    This is the fastest best way to search your computer for anything.
    It is extremely fast and highly reliable If Everything can't find it, it is not on your system!

    Cons

    For some reason my computer won't allow it to load automatically. I have to grant permission every time I turn the system on???

    Summary

    This is the best!

    "Do not install this software from this site."

    May 17, 2013  |   By dwcoath

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    I have used Everything for almost a year and it worked very fast and accurately.

    Cons

    When it stopped responding I downloaded again from CNet to reinstall. This new file contained a program which was installed automatically called, "Free Ride Games". I was careful and installed manually. Free Ride Games installed in two locations and is proving very difficult to remove. It appears to be write protected.

    Summary

    Something is wrong at CNet Download. I have always trusted this site but now I don't know.
