Search files blazing fast

by Ewald Hofman 9. December 2010 17:25

If you know there is a file somewhere on your machine, but you cannot find it with the default Windows Search Tools (that why they tend to call it Windows Search and not Windows Find Smile) then switch to a tool that really works.

Go to http://www.voidtools.com/ to download your copy of Everything. The download is only small (350KB), it indexes fast (within 5 mins) and searches my complete computer even faster then I can type.

I only blame David Carpenter for not spreading the word more aggressively and for not developing this earlier.

I use a program called Ava Find (it is $40 though for pro)
I have been using it for 6 years now and absolutely love it.

There are only a handful of issues I have run into with it over the years. It hasn’t been updated since 2003 but it doesn’t need much in my opinion except for a few fixes.
