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

    July 5, 2012  |   By wildboy211


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


    *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


    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.
