Excellent search portable freeware 5 stars by ricohflex77 Oct 23, 2016 (Read all my 8 reviews)
This is how you can achieve being able to navigate to a folder, and let NirSoft SearchMyFiles search that particular folder. It is faster and much better than Windows search. You simply go into main menu, click on Options. Click to enable "Explorer Context Menu". That is it. The next time you are in Windows Explorer or Total Commander; place your cursor on any folder, then simply right click on mouse and choose SearchMyFiles from CVontext Menu. Nirsoft SearchMyFiles will open with that folder already input into the "Base Folders" of the Search Options window. You can input whatever search criteria you wish. The two window pane system is in fact superior. It lets you control search criteria in window 1 and the search results in the other window 2. You can press F9 to open any search result file; or choose in Options to Open File On Double Click. The software remembers your last Base folder and the next time you run the software, it defaults to your last used base folder. If you have many base folders; it remembers them too. Just select from a scroll list. Overall an excellent search software. Portable and FREE. show Review details
Excellent results 5 stars by busybusy Apr 27, 2015 (Read all my 156 reviews)
The biggest thing is to find a search too which will scan network drives. Most only look at local attached media but SearchMyFiles works without question on any drive or remote media. The interface seems busy at first but once you examine the layout it all makes sense. I was able to find what I needed and also to verify that if a file did not exist. Either way the results were produces quick. Thanks again to NirSoft's tools!!! Two-Thumbs Up! show Review details
Great utility! 5 stars by sangro407957 Jul 27, 2014
Found a string of text inside a folder in seconds, which neither the Windows search function nor Google Desktop did. Definitely a keeper. show Review details
