"Excellent and Efficient Search Tool"

What do you like best?

Its speed. It leaves the search capabilities of Windows in the dust. There are also many parameters that further define the search results such as file size, expressions, date and inclusion of wildcards.

What do you dislike?

I actually cannot think of any negative aspects of Agent Ransack. The right-click context menu adds great flexibility in being able to start your search in specific file system directories.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I work as a software developer on a complex software product containing over 18 million lines of code. This has proven to be a great asset for locating specific code in that vast code base.

"FileLocator Pro (Commercial version of Agent Ransack)"

What do you like best?

It's a simple tool that does exactly what it is supposed to do - help you locate files based on a wide array of filters.

What do you dislike?

There isn't anything that comes to mind -- I use this tool multiple times each day and it definitely suites my needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're currently relying on Windows search to find files, you owe it to yourself to check out this tool -- it's much quicker and more flexible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a software engineer, searching for files is a task I do quite often. The built-in Windows search is slower and not as flexible as this tool.

What Desktop Search solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Find anything on your computer"

What do you like best?

Speed and flexibility - you can search for any part of a file name, or any text within a document and Agent Ransack finds it!

What do you dislike?

The name - sounds too dangerous. There is nothing I don't like about the operation of the program.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lost and misplace files are found, multiple versions of same file are indicated. Within a few seconds, you have searched all your drives for that missing document or found the document with the text you are looking for.

"Good File Search Tool"

What do you like best?

I like the ability to search for text within files, as well as using regular expressions

What do you dislike?

Not much, this was an easy tool to install and start using right away

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have thousands upon thousands of files we receive, and often need to look through them for a specific phrase or result. Many times, its looking to find what in the file caused a process to fail. This tool saves time to pinpoint which file we're looking for.
