Information is great, and usually more information is better. This assumes, of course, that you can put your hands on that information. If you've got some big book packed with important critical info but no index, it's probably not going to do you a lot of good; you've got to be able to find what you're looking for to make it useful. Your computer has a ton of files on it, many of which are probably important to your business, hobby, or some other use. But if you can't find them when you need them, then they're really just taking up space.

UltraSearch may be just the kind of tool to give you a hand with locating those files. Rather than spending a lot of your computer's horsepower building its own indexes in the background, this tool taps into the Master File Table of your NTFS partitions. Since that table's already there, you may start to see the results of your search while you're still typing your search terms into the app. It's got filters to help you exclude the stuff you're not looking for—particular directories, documents, or file types—while speeding you along toward your goal of finding that piece of critical information you're looking for.

You can grab a copy of UltraSearch for free. It's a Windows application and runs under Win XP and later, including 64-bit versions.
