Does anyone know of a desktop search tool that is faster than FileLocator Lite? All my files are on an SSD, and my searches definitely stalling because of I/O-blockage. Before upgrading to FileLocator Pro (that indexes files so subsequent searches are faster), I wanted to know what everyone else is using.
I use FileLocator because it can search through binary files and extract text in many different charsets. It’s also dead-useful for digging through my huge pile of notes and code snippets.
Windows Desktop Search is entirely unsuitable for locating files. What other alternatives are out there?
