Easy to use.
Boolean functions are great.
With the file list function I can upload a couple of lists to my db server and create custom compares and diffs.
I'm sure there are more, haven't had time to explore the other options.
Haven't found any yet.
I use this software daily and don't know how I ever got along without it. We have numerous applications strewn across multiple servers and none of them have good "housekeeping" functions built in, so the files just keep building up over the years. MS just can't handle the types of searches we need to do across them without choking.
Wish they would develop a companion product (or maybe they have?) that would aid in automatic file aging/archiving.
FileLocator Pro is what I use for all searching. It doesn't bog down my system with indexing or indexing files. I search as needed, and it finds everything within the parameters I set. I will not use the different invasive indexing apps. Instead, I like the ever-ready FileLocator Pro. I've used it for years, and will continue to do so.
You don't get "instant" results that programs that constantly index (but you don't get the overhead either).
It's pricey for a utility.
Worth the money. Indispensable.
looked forward to using a script to detect long filenames
no free trial when started right after download
will need to uninstall
I've used this product many times and have mostly found it useful. The speed of searching is very good, which is why I like it.
Can't think of any serious cons.
Useful product; like to use it when necessary.
Searches practically every standard extension file.
Can customise everything to suit.
Quick to search.
Does not hog resources.
No problems downloading or installing.
Comprehensive help files.
Very little that I have found so far.
Upgrades after the first year are chargeable but at reduced rate.
It opens up an image file in a default viewer (MS Picture Manager).
Searches within zip files.
Searches within Excel zipped files.
Searches within Excel text boxes which Copernic and other major search engines will not do.
Shows the search text result and text either side.
Click the text result and it opens up its own viewer for the full detail.
Click the file and it will open up the original file.
Agent Ransack is the freeware lite version of this program but does not have the functionality that this program offers.
I have looked at all the download.com desktop search programs and this is the only one that I can confidently recommend.
XYplorer Free version 5.55 comes a close second but it does not highlight the result and is not able to locate the position of the text within the file. However XYplorer has its own internal viewer for image files.
