File Search Assistant

File Search Assistant by AKS-Labs - Main ScreenIntroducing File Search Assistant from AKS-Labs, the all-in-one file search utility that allows you to:

  • Quickly find exactly the text you need, no matter what kind of file it’s in.
  • Search for plain text or special symbols, target exactly the folders you want,
  • Filter your search by file size and date, and
  • Preview your results in context.

You can even:

  • Index your files,
  • Analyze your disk usage, and
  • Save your results, so your next search will be even faster.

  • First, choose your search terms.  You can search for one or more words, whole phrases, or use regular expressions, like “+cats +dogs” or “+cats -dogs”.

Enter the text that you want to find

  • Search for UNICODE text, or for special symbols like line breaks.  Or, search for special characters by HEX code.
  • Then, choose where you’d like to search.  You can search a single folder or a group of folders, on your hard drive or your local network.  Include or exclude individual folders from your search.  Even filter your search to find files of a particular size, or files that were modified on a particular date.

Specify folders where you need to search for files

  • Search all kinds of files, regardless of format or encoding. Of course you can search MS Office documents, like Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations.  But you can also find any matching text in your OpenOffice documents, Adobe PDF documents, RTF (Rich Text Format) documents, and in the text and meta tags on your HTML web pages.  Search the tags on your images, videos, and multimedia files, as well.  Search password-protected documents.  Even search files inside WinZip and WinRAR archives.

Find text in files of various formats: PDF, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, even password protected documents.

  • And Preview your results. File Search Assistant doesn’t  just show you a list of your matching files.  It shows you a preview of each of those files.  You’ll see exactly where your keywords were found.  You’ll even see the surrounding text.  You can preview one file at a time, or preview all of your search results at once.

Preview search results without opening documents one by one

And File Search Assistant also includes several additional features.

  • Index your files, to make your next search even faster. Choose fixed indexing for files on your hard drive, or portable indexing for files on a thumb drive.  Choose dynamic re-indexing, to update your index every time your file changes.  Or, mix and match your indexing options: choose fixed indexing with dynamic re-indexing for files you use every day, or portable indexing without re-indexing for files on a CD-ROM.

Index your files to make the search even faster

  • Analyze your disk space, to use your computer more efficiently. File Search Assistant can quickly spot the largest folders on your hard drive, as well as any duplicate files.  Then, you can delete or move any files you don’t need. Read more…

  • Or, save your search results, so you only have to run your search once. You can save a list of the files you found, generate a report with relevant quotations from each file, or even print out a copy of your folder structure so you can easily organize your system.
