Blazing fast local files search engine.

I use it to rapidly get to files without needing to use file open dialogs or explorer.

Let's hope development resumes though since a new beta version is long overdue. I would pay for this (although I have already donated (: ).

Fast, simple and useful


Good alternative to Everything

about Everything and FileSearchy · Dec 2013 · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

I think Everything is a very good search tool, but it has some serious limitations that
prevent it from being the ONLY one search tool present on your computer. You will probably need
one more to search file contents or search computers where you don't have administrator permissions.

FileSearchy was designed to correct this flaw and combines both features in one tool.

Things in common:

  • Instant search by file name on NTFS drives.
  • Fast indexing and real-time DB update.


  • Search file contents including PDF and Office documents.
  • Search non-NTFS drives (without using index - not instant).
  • Ability to work without administrator rights (without using index).
  • Tabbed interface.

"Search file contents including PDF and Office documents."
Everything has a brother Anytxt, you can google it, it is a dedicated document search tool.

There is freezing in Windows 10. Is there any solution?


(Real) linux alternative?

Is there a real linux alternative to Everything?

The suggestions found on the main site here are frankly way off. None of them offers the same functionality i.e. fast indexing and truly instant search.
