Excellent product today...I had used it when it was in Beta stage and I have to admit that I was very much impressed by its advanced functions.
Users can perform multiple searches with their own rules, by opening several tabs at the same time: so they can search for a specific document through extensive folders, according to its partial or whole name, its date, size or even on the basis of a word or expression in the contents of a file (PDFs and Microsoft Office docs) as a keyword.
It's also possible to set an exclusion list of items to be searched for, as well as preventing docs exceeding or under a certain dimension from being displayed in the search results.
Best of all it can integrate itself in Windows Explorer, thus allowing you to search through the contents of a folder by simply right-clicking on it, highlighting any found string in name and contents to make your searching experience even easier and more compelling.
Absolutely a keeper!
3 THUMBS UP from me!!

Installed and registered without a problem on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system. Must be a Russian company, but no information at all about the company. That's bad.
I use file search programs since long. A large technical documents collection is worthless, if you cannot find, what you are looking for just in this moment.
For just looking after a file name, IndexYourFiles is my choice, ultrafast in indexing also large collection, free, stable and the best of all File Indexers IMHO.
Searching informations within files is more tricky. I use the paid version of dtSearch, surely the leading company in this field.
You can also test copernic desktop search (free and paid) or archivarius 3000 (paid), a reliable program also for ePub eBooks.
Okay, let's start.
Upon program start, the program starts indexing the fixed drives, you can also check under options to scan the removable drives.
The program does not display the index status, a progress bar or something, which shows, what the program is doing. This is bad.
The indexing of a small disk with 219.748 items takes about one minute. That's good.
You can search for a folder, a document and so on. You can also search using regular expression. That's good, but the help does not give any help in this case.
The searched string is interpreted as a Perl-compatible regular expression.
DOS masks, several strings and string exclusion is not allowed.
The programmer thinks, either you know regular expressions, than you need no help or you can forget it...
You can also search within documents, plain text or PDF. And here we are:
Because it does not index the content it has to open and search in each found file from the beginning to the end. This takes as long as it takes to read thousands of documents and this can be hours.
A good and nicely made file indexer, but because of the program structure not a content indexer. No question, it can be of use for small numbers of documents.
As a file indexer I will stick to IFY, for the freebie fan look for copernic desktop search(free). This is a content indexer. If you have large collections of documents you'll have dtSearch anyhow.
Not a bad program, an early release state and I hope, that it will be updated, because of :
Future features. Scheduled on February - March 2014. Free Pro
Search contents of eBooks (EPUB, FB2, MOBI)
This should be included in the today's GAOD anyhow.
Thanks GOATD and Midlinesoft

There are essentially two kinds of file-search utilities. The 1st kind first creates its own index/database of all the filenames on your computer, or disk(s), or directory(s), then performs the search. The second type... well, doesn't. Instead, it "crawls" along the directories and fetches/collects the relevant file entries.
Depending on the structure of your directories, either the 1st or the 2nd method may be very helpful/quick or very problematic/slow/space-consuming.
This giveaway creates its own index of files on your disk. Take this into account when you choose whether to give it a try or not. And if you care a little about your privacy - don't forget to block its access to Internet before/upon starting it.
The company site comtains a page for a freeware filesearch utility called MultiFind and a shareware, MutiFind Pro. It's not clear are there any substantial differences between FileSearchy and MultiFind.

@#2 As a PC tech, I've been frustrated with the built-in Windows search because 1) It runs in the background (unless you have indexing turned off) using your computer's resources and 2) It doesn't work. 9 times out of 10 it wouldn't find what I was looking for even though I knew it was on my computer.
One of the first things I do when installing a new OS is turn off indexing.
Instead, I use a free alternative Agent Ransack which got a 4.5 editors rating on CNET. It uses a "crawl" function instead of indexing so it may take a minute or two, but isn't hogging my computer's resources.
FileSearchy apparently also uses indexing, so if you don't turn off Window's indexing BOTH programs are indexing your hard drives!

When I first installed XP I realised that Microsoft had set a new standard on how NOT to write a search program.
So I wrote my own in my beloved Delphi; it allowed me to limit file names and directories searched, and if a context search to include and exclude whole words, it then allowed you to search within the results to further limit the number of files returned.
Until today I have found no search engine which does this in a satisfactory manner, at last a really decent search engine!
Only when under View the Search Pane was selected did the full potential of the program become obvious.
The above allow you to limit where and what you are looking for by including and excluding and masking names.
A very versatile area in that you can include and exclude words, it allows three choices whole word, substring and lastly regular expressions.
The first in the above whole word is obviously the fastest and is all I used in my program, substring is useful but somewhat slower and, frankly something I will never use except as a last resort, is regular expressions as it can be extremely slow.
Because you can make a list in this area it means you can really narrow down to find exactly what you want, very much a plus in my book.
Once you get used to building your own search criteria, particularly if you use whole word, you will find a sensibly limited number of results and do it quickly.
A useful program included with this download is pdftotext.exe in the xpdf folder which is a stand-alone program, instructions on its use are included.
Regular expressions in Perl
This is by far the best search engine I have found, when writing my own I compared it with many others but found nothing to compare with the versatility and usefulness of this program.
