      FoxTrot Professional Search vs HoudahSpot opinions
      pros, cons and recent comments
      FoxTrot uses one or multiple dedicated indexes, focused on the files related to your projects, instead of relying on Spotlight's index. It has very advanced searching, refining and previewing abilities.

    4. Find Any File searches your local disks for files by name, creation or modification date, size, or type and creator code (not by content, though).
