What is Indexer++?
Have you ever needed to find a file buried deeply somewhere in your computer?
Indexer++ is an open-source desktop files and folders search utility. It is a Windows search replacement which is faster, supports entire file system search, filters, regular expressions, command-line interface and more. The Core search engine is written in C++ 11/14, uses Win API and STL, which ensures high speed and saves memory. Indexer++ directly reads and parses the NTFS filesystem master files table, therefore it requires administrator privileges.
