    "Light, superfast but primitive"

    May 7, 2013  |   By piyushstv

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    very light, no time needed for indexing

    Cons

    doesn't cover removable drive
    too primitive, no advance search features as a per date, size etc
    cannot do thumbnail view

    Summary

    worth it.

    "It really works, Search Everything easily and quickly"

    April 1, 2013  |   By pleiades357

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Simply, it finds files and anything else, amazing nothing MS offers does anything like this search.

    Cons

    I haven't found one. Sometimes when WMP loses a file I have to search by date... if Search Everything does that, I have not learned how (WMP will lose the name of a file then not allow me to rerecord it, baffling, showing it already copied, sigh)

    Summary

    A fantastic software for finding anything and Everything!

    "Really, really good, but with one caveat."

    November 6, 2012  |   By tonyny77

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Amazingly simple, fast, and efficient. Works like a charm.

    Cons

    I'm a little perplexed by this utility requiring approval to run each time you sign into Windows. It requires just a single mouse click to authorize running the program, but it seems there ought to be a way to make the program work without the system asking for approval every time it's started. I adjusted all the settings I know how to control, but none of the changes I made seemed to have an effect. My system still asks for approval each time this program starts.

    Summary

    I've used this utility for about a week and for the most part, I'm very, very pleased. However, the one issue I have with it is the need to approve running it each time it's started after signing into Windows. Other than that, I would have given EVERYTHING CNet's five-star rating.

    "GET THIS NOW. Free app that blows away the competition."

    November 4, 2012  |   By imsortaaboveavgpcuser

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    ABSURDLY fast
    Simplistic, highly functional GUI
    Easily filter entire search by given criteria
    Easily sort those ABSURDLY fast results by parameters if desired
    Advanced users may want to tweak this or that, but this thing so fantastic right out of the gates.

    Cons

    none; any nit-pick I could offer is simply obliterated by the usefulness of this amazing program.

    Summary

    This is not just my favorite search app, but probably my favorite app of all time. It blows my mind that a tiny program written by one man and offered for free can be unmatched by anything else available. Please don't mistake my high praise for hyperbole - it's just that fantastic of a program. You've got to give this app a try.

    "YOU ABSOLUTELY NEED THIS"

    October 5, 2012  |   By Mattj20

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    This program is small, portable, fast, and it does excatly what it says it does. It quickly catalouges EVERY singe file on your computer, on EVERY drive, and lets you search through them lightning fast. For example open it up, wait a sec for it to compile, and type in .mp3 to see EVERY single mp3 file on your computer! You'll often be suprised at what's there you didn't know about. Also if you are search for a file on your computer, now you ACTUALLY have a powerfull tool to find it. Windows built in search is pathetic in general, but ESPECIALLY compared to this. Why can't windows have thorough search capabilities built in?

    Cons

    One time it broke because it searched through a network drive and later that network drive was not connected. I re-installed and it fixed the problem

    Summary

    This tool is incredibly helpful. There is nothing more frustrating that not being able to find a file on your computer, and windows search is weak and often completely insufficient. This program is AWESOME.

    "Lightning Fast"

    October 1, 2012  |   By adkr

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Fast, simple, easy UI

    Cons

    None so far

    Summary

    I wanted a simple, very fast search for folders, files and email. Didn't need a bulky do-it-all search. This one is great for those items. To search with Windows for "startup" folder was 24 seconds. With Everything is was instant.

    "Requires admin access every time"

    July 26, 2012  |   By NewDigitig

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    None. I'm not willing to give administrative access to a program that has no justifiable grounds for needing it, so I've not seen what it can do.

    Cons

    Requires admin password every time the computer is started.

    Summary

    As far as I am concerned, requiring an administrator password every time the computer is booted is absolutely appalling. I only want it to search locations that the current user can actually access, so there is no need for it to require administrative access (unless it's doing stuff that it shouldn't). Windows 7's own search doesn't need admin access, and I don't want a search tool that does anything more than that one does, I just want one that does the same but with a usable interface.

    "Fast, small, free program to search file & folder names"

    July 5, 2012  |   By wildboy211

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    *Fast
    *Small
    *Free
    *Takes minimum system resources
    *Does not search file contents (this could be a con as well)

    Cons

    *Does not search file contents (this is a pro though)
    *Still in infancy (no plugins, etc)
    *Could be made into a GREAT program if open-source

    Summary

    Between movies, music, applications and documents, i have literally thousands of files on 4 different hard drives. When im searching for a movie for example, i can add all the folders in the exclude section of this program that i dont want to search, and find the movies, song, or document that much faster. Exactly what i was looking for. Now if we could get some plugins and made this program open source, i believe this application could be made into something that is legendary. It has the potential. Just as we were tired of searching with Yahoo, AOL and Jeeves in 1998, Google came along and showed us how we need to search the internet. I am tired of using Windows default search, and i am grateful that i found this program. Its simplistic design allows you to begin searching the minute you open it, and then come to find out, it has more option to customize your search with Regex, add searches to Windows context, and much, much more.
