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
No cigar 2 stars by MrJaw69 Sep 16, 2013 (Read all my 34 reviews)
Though it has many features, SearchMyFiles is surprisingly clunky. When invoked it opens two windows: a list window, and a search window with lots of options. SearchMyFiles requires the use of wildcards for all searches, which is straight out of 1989. Choosing the search folder was cumbersome. I'd grown accustomed to Windows' search of being able to navigate to a folder, hit F3, and then having the software search, albeit slowly, the folder for my criteria. I'd hoped for something as intuitive as Windows' search, but faster. I'll keep looking. show Review details
