This is a pretty good software to find files stored in your PC. There are good multiple features that makes it a good file search software. The first-most are obviously the search filters. There are some really good search filters in the software. To name some noticeable filters includes: Containing text, search for files that has file size greater than or smaller than the file size that you’ll specify, option to enter the date before or after which the file was modified, option to match case of the contents of files, and the enhanced MS office and PDF documents searching filter. These all together, make the search pretty powerful. One handy feature in this freeware is, it automatically includes the hidden files in it’s file search and displays them in the search results.
The second good feature that I liked is FileLocator’s interface. It’s very simple and easy to use. Every single button and necessary filter text fields are right at the software’s interface. All that is required for you is, simply fill up the text boxes and enable/choose the search filters. The results list gets displayed in the lower left pane of the interface and the search summary, search reports, and search hits (contains selected result’s address, creation date and time) are displayed at the lower right pane of the interface. However there’s one thing missing from the software, and that is a progress bar that shows the search progress.
A pretty good thing about this free file search software, is the file’s context menu that opens up when you right click on a file. This context menu is pretty handy and adds more to the software’s functionality. Using it you can directly run the selected result file. You can rename it or cut, copy, paste, or delete it. Plus you can directly open the folder where the file is stored.
This software also has the ability to save the search criteria in .SRF file type, which you can import again in the future and use them anytime. This is a pretty handy feature of the freeware. To save a criteria simply click on Save Criteria button in the tool bar, or go to file menu and select Save Criteria.
The tool bar further consists of important buttons: New blank search, New search based on last search, Open search criteria file, Export results, Start, Pause, Stop Search, and buttons to Toggle content, Word warp, Modify search configuration, Print, and Help.
