"Voidtools beat me to it."

What do you like best?

This is a really neat utility to have. When I first heard about it, I thought oh, another gadget to junk up my machine. However I gave it a try after a friend prodded me into it.After I installed it, I realized that my preconceived notion was highly incorrect .As it turned out, it is a great utility that acts like a search engine for your PC. What I like best is the speed at which it searches and returns results.

What do you dislike?

I have not found anything about this program to dislike however, there is something. and it is not a dislike for me cause this is the limits of the software, if you are searching on emails. It does find them, however as soon as I hit the @ it can get stumped. If I use the less is more strategy,ie, joip, it finds it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend other to give this a go. You can get the installer from their site. Easy to install and also use.It hardly uses any resources. Another good thing, it was free. They do talk about receiving donations, but it i not a requirement,

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

For us, it is not really solving a business problem. However it is making me more productive in the way that I search for things on the computer.I ran a test to find a file from time to time. it took me about 3 minutes because it was not in the same place I last used it. It took Voidtools 5-6 seconds to find it. So it beat me. It even beat the Windows search

"Everything is awesome"

What do you like best?

https://www.voidtools.com/ Everything is a great tool.

○It searches instantly, and it indexes 10 TB network drives in a couple minutes (I'm talking about the first time it scans files and makes a search index, or if you change settings). Windows search takes hours or days to create an index. The key difference is Windows search can be set up to search inside files. But the vast majority of the time people are searching on filename, and that is where Everything shines.

○ I forget where some files are stored now, because instead of going through folders I just search a few keywords, and boom I'm there.

○ It can be set to keep track of the size of folders (which is another thing Windows is terrible at).

○ It is free.

What do you dislike?

○ Could be easier to set up for multiple users and computers.

○ Some of the default settings don't make sense, some of the best stuff is turned off. For example: double click on path to open that folder.

○ The advanced search settings are perhaps overly complex, but great to have when you want to create an unusual search.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The creator is active on the forums https://www.voidtools.com/forum/ And he is working on updates.

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

Search becomes useful again, instead of a time waster. Way easier to find and correct all copies of an old company document. I wish powerful search tools were more commonly a part of software, and websites.
