Editors' Review

+

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.

"Iobit Unlocker does not work with this"

August 02, 2015  |  By howardferns

 |  Version: UltraFileSearch Lite 4.3.0.15183

Pros

I downlaoded the portable version. Quick and easy to install. Very fast search results.

Cons

My first use of the software, it found a folder I wanted to remove but when I tried to delete it I got the 'Access denied' message. Selecting Iobit Unlocker from my right click menu, all that happened was I got a repeat of the standard delete message again. This happened until about the 5th attempt, when Iobit opened and allowed me to unlock and delete the file, but at the same time UltraFileSearch closed itself.

Summary

Much of my use of software like this is to find and remove leftover files and folders after uninstalling software, which sometimes can not be deleted in the normal way. If UltraFileSearch Lite (portable) won't let me use an unlocker to remove such files, then it is not much use to me.

Updated on Aug 3, 2015

Addition: I also meant to comment that I couldn't drag the cursor and highlight any number of files for deletion, it only seems possible to do one at a time.

Updated on Aug 20, 2015

Further Update: Because of the two annoyances above, I found something I preferred but then I had great difficulty removing UFS. As it was the portable version it should have been a simple right-click and delete of the folder, but I got the "You do not have permission..." message. I managed to delete the files within it with Iobit Unlocker but then I got "Access denied" when trying to delete the empty folder! I got rid of it using MoveOnBoot. I know from searches the permissions issue is common with Win 7 & 8, but I've done this sort of operation several times before on this 6-months-old pc with no problems.
