Searching for files in Windows in usually not very fast if you are not using the indexing service of Windows which comes by default in Windows Vista.
So every time you search for files or folders, it searches the data one by one browsing each and every folder for your particular query. This definitely takes time as there is no database indexed for the system files.
Ultra File search is very light weight utility which can quickly find Files, Folders and text on your Local Drive, Network Drives or even external USB or Flash drive including CD and DVD Rom too.
What’s the difference between indexing software and Ultra File Search ?
As you know there are couple of software like Google Desktop search which keeps on indexing files in the database. This hogs up the computer resources and takes so much of the disk space.
Ultra File Search uses light weight SQL lite for the file monitoring but never indexes the files. This means, faster search without compromising speed and resources of your system.
And it can also search for text inside the files. And you can also export the results inside CSV, HTML , XML or a plain text file and you can also sort the results by column.
Recently we discussed How to Add Vista like start Menu search in Windows XP with ViStart which gives around 400% faster results than normal Windows search. But if you are not interested in Start Menu search you should definitely try Ultra File Search.
