File Finder Editor's Review

File Finder is such a simple and easy program to use to track down and locate files and folders on your system. I think this has to be a fantastic selling point, but maybe also its downfall. It instantly took me back to the retro MS-DOS based Windows days, if you look past the Aero themed title bar. I was a little surprised to see a price tag on this software if I’m honest, as I didn’t think anyone would want to purchase File Finder, however I can definitely see the attractive side of this very minimalistic application after trying it out.

Its really, really easy to get using. The drives & network shares attached and mapped to your system are listed down the right hand side of the window, however only using the drive letter its been designated so you may have to have a quick glance in My Computer to make sure you’re scanning the right drive! Simply click the drive letter you want to search, and start typing in the search box at the top. File Finder starts to quickly index the drive or share as soon as you click it, and displays the number of files found at the top also. This is useful because it means a scan of the entire disk doesn't have to be performed each time you want to scan for something new. All results are listed below, including their file location and file extension, which is something else I liked a lot.

Once you've found what you’re looking for, just double click it to open it. If its a folder, it’ll open in Windows Explorer, and any other files in their default application. Right clicking on a search result will let you copy its path a title, just title/path, open its containing folder, as well as giving you Open With options and the ability to view and change its properties.

On the lower right hand side of the window, you can check tick boxes to have File Finder always be on top, or display just files, just folders, or a mixture of the two.

So simple, yet still really effective, File Finder does work pretty well. It helped me track down my files really quickly, which impressed me. Again, slightly surprised at the price tag, and File Finder does miss some features that can be found in more common file searchers such as specifying file type and size, however I’ve never really had to use these features anyway. If this was a free application, I would be keeping it and using it. Overall, I’d rate File Finder 4/5.
