Search Your Computer

January 13, 2020

On January 10, 2020, one of the DarkCyber team needed to locate a file on a Windows 10 machine. Windows 10 search was okay, but it generated false drops and took too long.

DarkCyber tried to get its copy of ISYS Desktop Search 8 to work, but that was a non starter. We had given up on Copernic a couple of versions ago. The DTSearch trial had expired as had a couple of New Age search systems vendors had provided to us to test; for example, X1, Vound and Perfect Search, among others. Elastic was overkill. Yikes.

We then checked our files for “desktop search” and located links to these articles:

We found a couple of these programs useful. In fact, the Everything software, version 1.4 did the trick for us.

We wanted to thank Martin Brinkmann for his articles which provided useful links and helpful information to us. Good job!
