Solid and functional5 starsby MrJaw69 Oct 26, 2013 (Read all my 34 reviews)
I hate the standard Windows search. It's slow and it's clunky if you don't let the OS endlessly index the drive. When using windows search on a network drive, for some reason there's a delay before the search will commence. Happy was I to find Agent Ransack. It's very fast, it integrates with windows via right click or keyboard shortcut, and has power user features without being hard to use. The interface is clean and intuitive. Really good software keeps it simple but surprises you later with features you didn't even know you needed. Before I found that I needed it Agent Ransack had the ability to search multiple, specified folders. And there's no delay when searching a network drive, either. To nitpick, pushing F3 won't launch Agent Ransack, but maybe that's the fault of XP. Fortunately, CTRL-F will, so I'm good with that. Agent Ransack gets five stars, and I don't often give five stars. showShow review details
Better than Windows Vista/7 search!4 starsby wildgoosespeeder Dec 23, 2009 (Read all my 52 reviews)
All I have to say is that it's better than the slow Windows Vista/7 Search in Windows Explorer. The only thing that should be a feature is selecting a file type by a pull down menu just like in the Windows XP search function of Windows Explorer, if applicable. showShow review details
Not exciting, but useful indeed.3 starsby SilverFox Dec 21, 2009 (Read all my 7 reviews)
The Agent is useful for finding files on your computer. You can search by filename, using wildcards if you wish. It also searches within files. Say you are looking for a particular phrase or string of text within a document but can't remember the name of the file. Agent Ransack comes to the rescue! The interface is a bit dated and clunky, but still funcitonal. When installed Agent Ransack places a shortcut in the Start - Search menu, along with the default XP search app (the one with the animated doggie that 'sniffs' for files). If I was to suggest improvements, it would be for a more modern, user-friendly interface and a more comprehensive help file. A kind of 'Help File for Dummies' would help! showShow review details
