"Great Windows Search Replacement"

What do you like best?

The powerful ability to search for complex strings in a simple interface

What do you dislike?

It doesn't integrate as a simple Windows Search replacement in the start menu

Recommendations to others considering the product

Windows has a built-in search. It's free. UltraFinder is not, but UltraFinder should be what Windows seach is. There's no comparison. Even with the price, UltraFinder is the replacement to use. We are able to find files and directories that we were previously unable to find with other search solutions. I've used other IDM programs, and not only are they solid and reliable, they have the features that are useful in the real world. Since I'm able to use more complex search criteria, I've been able to utilize a search now where before it would be manually going through directories looking for a file that we didn't have much to go by. Sometimes just a name and date aren't enough, and UltraFinder takes those searches much further with more specific search options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In an environment with a continuously growing number of files and directories, UltraFinder makes is easy to find anything in your computer. It can scan locally and on your network just as easily. We've found that the complex search features make it a great tool to locate files where we may know multiple, unconnected expressions in the name.

"When you want more than the built-in Windows find feature"

What do you like best?

Ability to search across multiple drives/mapped locations with one search

What do you dislike?

I do not see a way to search by date/time stamp. I needed that the other day.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider the IDM All Access subscription. I changed to the subscription to get all the great IDM products. I had been using UltraEdit for years. I persoanlly think that All Access is a great value.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Unfortunately at times I know I have a file saved but cannot remember where. I may remember part of the file name or contents but cannot remember if I saved it on my local drive or one of several network locations. UltraFinder lets me search all the various locations at once.

What Enterprise Search solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

I really appreciate how quickly I can find text in files. Most of my work is with text files and it is convenient that I can load any found item in UltraEdit.

What do you dislike?

This is a Windows only product and it would be helpful to have

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can search remote FTP sites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Search on Windows has deteriorated over last few versions so UltraFinder picks up the slack so I can find files quickly.
