Question File Find Alternative ?

March 2nd, 2012, 14:40
Hello,

I'm so much fed up with the Windowes File Search. I don't know why this is, but since several years now it crashes when all files are found.

Therefore I'm looking now for fast command-line replacement/utility for that.

Any ideas ?

I feel the same way. The one in XP worked much better then the Win 7 one.

Just use TotalCommander to search for the files you need.

I use it exclusively for everything related to file management. Saves me several minutes every day, compared to the Windows Explorer.

Alt-F7.

Everything is a great alternative if you want something specifically for search. You have to try it if only for its speed.

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.
