SearchMyFiles Review

Felix Cheng
Alternative to the standard "Search For Files And Folders" module of Windows
A review of SearchMyFiles by Felix Cheng

SearchMyFiles is a wonder portable freeware file and folder searching application for Windows. As an alternative to the Windows Search that we all know and (*sigh*) love, SearchMyFiles provides you with some powerful tools to find the exact files you've been searching for on your computer.

You're able to search your system with wildcards (*), search by last accessed, search by last modified and even by the content of the files by using either text or binary search. You can also find files on your system by file size, so if for example you're looking for a large movie file, it might be worth it to search for files over 600 MB.

Overall, a great contribution to the freeware community by NirSoft... again.
