Ever lost a particular file among a multitude of similar files within your PC? If the built-in search tool isn't helping, Ultra File Search Lite may be able to help. We found it to be an efficient and effective alternative to the Windows search tools.
Ultra File Search Lite, once installed, presents a plain, business-like interface that proved very easy to use. You can initiate a search using any of the four tabs at the top of the application, which are divided into Files and Folders, Containing Text, Date and Size, and Attributes, but each tab can be configured further for more-detailed searches. Results were returned very quickly in our tests, even when searches were very broad, and the program located each of our test files with no problems. We also liked the Find in Results functionality, which permits additional searching within the initial search results.
Ultra File Search Lite search results can be exported in TXT, CSV, HTML, and XML file formats. One minor issue we found during the test is that the application installed a desktop icon without permission. This issue aside, Utlra File Search Lite is a simple, effective tool that expands the search capabilities found in the typical built-in search tool.
Ultra File Search Lite is a Search Utility which is able to quickly find Files, Folders and Text on your Local, Network, DVD, CD-ROM, USB Hard or Flash Drives.
