    "Kiss Windows search engine bye bye!!"

    April 19, 2010  |   By hamstergrl

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    I use Daz Studio & Poser. They're ALWAYS asking for file locations, just goes with the territory. Everything has found EVERYTHING I've asked it to look for. while Vista & Win7 rarely, if ever, found anything! And its BLAZING FAST too!

    Cons

    Only con, and so far, it's not a big deal for me, is that it doesn't search within a document.

    Summary

    This program has been a godsend for me....no more crawling thru complex 3D file structures by hand, trying to find a file that may or may not be there - sometimes vendors misname their files, so you're looking like a mad idiot for something that doesn't exist. It has saved me literally HOURS of time. The search engine in either of my Windows OS rarely could find these files for me - but now I doubt I will ever use them again. And a big thank you for making this freely available. One thing I would like to be able to do: when clicking on an entry, it would be nice if the highlighted field showed up all the way across the page, instead of just on the first column. I'd also like to be able to right click anywhere on the line and call up the rc menu....it's just a little awkward for me as is - but not a big deal.

    "The best utility I have seen in YEARS."

    April 3, 2010  |   By Walt28

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    1 Speed - way ahead of Windows indexer and others
    2. Simplicity - enter a word or words
    3. Very little storage required, compared to traditional indexers

    Cons

    NO CONS - almost any "nice to have" addition would no doubt slow this great program.

    Summary

    Now I can enter any name, place or thing and have instant access to any files related, within a couple of seconds. That's especially important, when one has almost 25 years of files. I much appreciate the program's author being so considerate as to make this program FREE.

    "only one thing missing"

    March 31, 2010  |   By 18cdbob18

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    after first use, its speed is incredible...no need to add it to your start menu for it to perform well after its initial indexing...doesn't interfere with other apps...but you will need descriptive folder and file titles

    Cons

    the only thing it doesn't do is search for words within a text file....for that, you still need windows search

    Summary

    a rapid, accurate performer that should be better known than it is...after all, it's free and effective

    "Fast and accurate"

    March 27, 2010  |   By eclyde

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Indexes words in the file names. So, as long as you have descriptive file names, it does a great job.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    Download and use it. You won't regret it.

    "Best desktop search software there is!"

    March 22, 2010  |   By m_krsmanovic

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Install it and test it out compared to Microsoft's Windows Search or Google Desktop and you will see why this software is far superior. Check out the Task Manager and realize that it's too demanding on the resources either.

    Cons

    Does not work on the network drives, but that's out of its scope anyway.

    Summary

    Considering its excellent performance and generally good quality I'm surprised how come this software is not more popular.

    "Best companion for Windows 7"

    March 7, 2010  |   By munsefbadi

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Very Fast, very small, very professional programmers developed it
    This shows what fly means in "on the fly search"
    With windows 7, search became a real useless pain that can't be controlled.
    Boolean operations cool too
    all at 300+KB!!

    Cons

    Almost none
    Boolean operations could be improved in syntax and actually finding themcould be made easier

    Summary

    Don't leave home without it
    I can only think of FAR Manager (Files management - good old NC modified for Windows) as another utility showing how stuff should be done
    Must have - unbelievable search utility - best companion for Windows 7
