FileSearchy Comments

about FileSearchy · ·

Huge GUI, too big for what it does, too clunky for my liking
- a space hog on laptop monitors

Returns location of every piece of text as a separate line on the final report
eg: 25 finds in a document creates 25 line items on the final report . . . . drowning in information
- maybe for developers looking for the location of a specific line of text in a document

I found FileSearchy very slow compared to FileSearchEX
FileSearchEX creates a single line for each found file containing any number of concurrences of the sought text.
