Editors' review

Windows comes with its own built-in search feature, but many users find it to be slow and cumbersome. As its name suggests, Wise JetSearch is a speedy alternative that can quickly search for files and folders in a variety of locations. We think it's a great choice for anyone who's looking for an alternative to the built-in Windows option.

Wise JetSearch has an attractive and very simple interface. A drop-down menu reveals a series of check boxes from which you select the drives you want to search. There's a field where you enter your search terms, including file extensions and wild cards. Click the search button, and Wise JetSearch will scan the selected locations and return its results in a matter of seconds. When not in use, Wise JetSearch appears as a thin blue rectangle at the top of the screen; mouse over it and it expands to a search box, only bringing up the full interface once you've run a search.

Wise JetSearch has little in the way of documentation, and users who aren't familiar with the use of wild cards and other search strategies would do well to look for a little more information elsewhere. Overall, though, Wise JetSearch is incredibly easy for just about anyone to use. It's worth a try if you need a search tool that's nimbler (and more attractive) than Windows provides.

    "Seems to search well for me, could use some fixes."

    February 16, 2014   |   By raicarre

    Version: Wise JetSearch 1.45

    Pros

    Fast searches, includes external USB drives, finds folder names as well as file names. I haven't seen the pop-ups noted by others.

    Cons

    1. The program's installer does not allow setup for access by Windows Limited user accounts, so only user accounts with Administrator privileges can run it. It will display the GUI in Limited accounts, but will not search.

    2. At least in XP, the vertical scroll bar in the drop-down menu for selecting which hard drives to search malfunctions when there are too many partitions or drives to display:
    eg: with 11 partitions/drives the menu first only lists up to 8 drive letters, and then when scrolled down with the mouse it shows the remainder but will snap back up when the mouse button is released, making it impossible to check or uncheck the last 1 or 2.

    3. By default all drive letters are initially selected for searching, so if you only wish to search a few you have to go through the list and uncheck all the others. Sometimes on restart it remembers what drives you last checked, sometimes not.

    Summary

    Simple to use and fast. Suggestions in the forum are read by the owners but sometimes misunderstood. I hope they will continue to refine it.
