Search 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.

    "Fastest Search Program - bar none"

    August 12, 2009  |   By lloyd6270

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    This program is fantastic........if you know any word or exact word sequence in the file title. I use X1 and Copernic that search the entire file, but if you can live with the title only, this is fast faster faster, simple, and free.

    Cons

    None with this version. Hope future releases will have the ability to search the file contents.

    "Just Plain Simple"

    July 16, 2009  |   By Zoowey

    Cons

    None. It's simple and clean.

    Summary

    This is the most simple yet most effective application I have ever used in my life.

    "Get this gem"

    July 14, 2009  |   By Freud's Dad

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    Able to span multiple HD and index folders and filenames in a flash. Super fast results. Just be sure each folder or file you make has a meaningful hint in its name to help you identify the data you wish to retreive.

    Cons

    If you have a large number of files, re-indexing when you start up may take a while. Be patient. For more indepth results you will have to use some other indexing program, i.e., Search. But to narrow down the list this is excellent.

    "Just perfect..."

    June 10, 2009  |   By cartoonvillain

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    Within SECONDS, it found all 70,357 files on my computer (even in 'hidden' folders), showed the path and let me access the file directly.

    Cons

    Nothing really. Maybe some functionality that I haven't thought of yet, but that's not a "con". (omg, love this app)

    Summary

    It's so perfect (heh, although I've only used it for 15 minutes). Super fast and lightweight (memory- and cpu-wise). Microsoft, eat your heart out! (ew)

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    So much better than all the other bloated file search engines.

    Cons

    Doesn't index inside files . But how often do you need that?

    Summary

    Be a mensch - send the author a few bucks!

    "Fantabulous Application - 7 out of 5 star rating"

    May 9, 2009  |   By Pontiac1976

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    *ULTRA* fast searches. Literally, on my home machine which has OVER 1 MILLION files, it takes *LESS* than a second to find *ANY* file on my machine. It monitors changes to the file system to keep the database up to date. Activate with a hotkey.

    Cons

    I didn't write it! ;)

    Summary

    The "million file machine" exists.
    --
    Completed scan. Writing database.
    1084500 files found in 35919 folders.
    --

    Initial scan using my utility takes approx 5 minutes, non-cached. A search for *.iso on this machine with my util takes approx 5 seconds. My application doesn't monitor changes, so I have to update the database manually, or assign a scheduler to update when I'm not at the machine.

    This EVERYTHING application beats my linux clone of UPDATEDB/LOCATE blind folded, with its hands tied behind its back, all while hanging upside down in a wheel chair, submerged in a tank of shark infested water. Its an INCREDIBLE utility which I've now officially put into my tool belt if indispensable utilities.

    Hot-Key activated (I use WIN-ESC) or launch from a shortcut or desktop link. I've used other utilities that do what EVERYTHING does and never been happy with them. I even wrote my own application, and this EVERYTHING application beats it. I can't praise EVERYTHING enough.

    Its also WEB ENABLED, and password protected. Open a port on your router to your computer, and you can download the files you need to find instantly anywhere in the world!

    I can't think of anything that would out-do this application. This is one of those applications that should cost money!

    "This is a Life Saver !!!!!!!!!!!"

    April 8, 2009  |   By kool_kans

    Version: Search Everything 1.2.0.323b

    Pros

    Managing files is a cakewalk. I dont have to organize files much if I am going to find out what I want in a jiffy, wherever it is in my hard disk. Instant search is the name of the game.I think I can't work on windows without this.....

    Cons

    Nothing I could think of..

    Summary

    If you know the name of the file, even partly, then you can find that file with this utility almost instantly, from anywhere in your hard disk. This was helpful to me in finding out the duplicate files. I have been using this for about 2 months and I am sure this is going to be in my laptop as long as there is windows (atleast XP) installed in it. I strongly recommend it to everyone who is using windows to start making use of this wonderful little utility.
    I wonder how this is still not bought by Microsoft till now. This should be an integral part of windows.

    Updated on Apr 8, 2009

    I forgot to mention... your hard disk must be formatted as an NTFS file system for this to work.
