I gave this a run and tried to find some simple files but this barely found anything I'd search for. I searched for Gimp, Ashampoo, and other common files on my system, mpeg, jpeg, etc... but barely found anything.
I thought this would be a very good search tool considering how in depth the settings are so was a bit disappointed when I actually used it. Not saying it isn't GOOD but not what I would use, maybe to carry around on a USB? Not sure I would even go that far.
Searches for files extremely fast and is a keeper.
Downloaded this program (v1.15), and found it did what the native Vista search couldn't do - provide a simple interface to find files quickly with minimum end-user input.
The references in an earlier review regarding cpu utilization may either have been addressed or the machine I use Vista on is sufficiently powerful for it not be affected.
Definitely worth trying (works in XP also).
Could find anything quickly and at no expense to install a thing. Like using a disk to boot but easier. Wish there where more effective programs like this one. A sweet gem here like a plunger.? Missing a option to extract or scoop a selection files found to move all at once. I like the new Box check feature some are starting to use.
I was thrilled to see the size of this program (it was like a breeze from 1980's), and when it had a quite normal outlook and all necessary options, my hopes were high. My enthusiasm didn't fall when I noticed this program used more processor capacity than other search programs tend to do - it "should" mean high speed processing... but no; SMF turned out to be slow, slow and slow. XP`s own search function did the work in 32 seconds, while SearchMyFiles took 3 minutes 40 seconds. Considering the unbelievably small size of the program, the maker must be something of a genius and thus, I stand in awe waiting what he / she may produce by adding some mass to this product. It found everything, yes, but it just did the work incredibly slow.
