More about HandyFileSearch

HandyFileSearch program is intended to: (i) allow a user to quickly access files that the user remembers at least part of the name; (ii) quickly find a file by variety options (time, size, extension, location); (iii) find a file - binary or textual - containing combination of words or binary data (AND, OR, NOT, wildcards and regular expressions supported). The program allows a user to define several additional searching parameters (file size, creation time, extension, folder, etc.) to better restrict the number of results returned. The HandyFileSearch scans computer disk(s) (one-time operation that takes a few minutes) and creates a cache file. This allows the program to search for the files by their names really quickly.
