UltraSearch searches thousands of files almost instantly. File name searches narrow as they are typed, as well as with wildcards such as “*.exe“. Additional information like file size and last change date are present, as well as access to Explorer’s own context menu. You can exclude folders, files, or file-types by providing an “exclude” filter and results can be exported as text, RTF, HTML, CSV and Excel file, or printed.
The program works with NTFS-formatted drives to search without needing to first create an index. The program works directly with a feature of the file system called the Master File Table to give results on thousands of files in moments. Note that you can also search the interior of files for keywords, though this process is much slower than the file search.
