Agent Ransack provides you a preview of the search results file contents, this lets you decide which file is the one you want to open.
I can search by file name, pattern of string within files and pause my search.
The search report is also useful sometimes.
It's only available on Windows platform. We also have Mac machines but we can't use Agent Ransack there.
Great tool but available only for windows platform, so that's a downside.
We use Agent Ransack to search through local directories to quickly access files and documents. It is also being used by our SCM team who perform code merge and need a tool like Agent Ransack to quickly search through large number of files.
