Sowsoft’s Effective File Search is a free utility that purports to give users a more powerful yet easy-to-use search program replacing the basic Windows search utility. It can perform all the basic functions of Windows search, but expands on them with its added functionalities. It can perform specific searches through metadata filtering, for instance, allowing the user to specify that searches include only files of particular sizes. A user can also search based on hex files. It can also search hidden files and folders. The program provides actionable search results—that is, items in search results can be edited, deleted, moved, and so on.
Its most notable features are probably found in its automation options, however. For instance, users can automate particular searches or search functions via scripting. Furthermore, users who perform a particular search at regular intervals can simply create templates of that search’s parameters, then save that template as one of the search program’s presets. From then on, they will only need to click on that preset to run the search—which can be automated as well if they prefer to have it as a repeat-run macro.
File.org aims to be the go-to resource for file type- and related software information. We spend countless hours researching various file formats and software that can open, convert, create or otherwise work with those files.
