Compared your software with Ultrasearch & Everything. Everything seems to be faster but its using USN Journal system which I assume is some sort of indexing and uses very little amount of memory. Ultrasearch search MFT like SwiftSearch but is slower, results from searching a particular file ends up with UltraSearch using over 500MB memory while SwiftSearch using over 800MB memory. I think if the memory usage can be reduced it would definitely better than UltraSearch.
Doesn't really like Win7 x64. By this I mean that on my Windows 7 64-bit PC SwiftSearch crashes and displays the "SwiftSearch.exe has stopped working" message. When I click the View problem details button, the following is displayed: Problem signature: Problem Event Name: APPCRASH Application Name: SwiftSearch.exe Application Version: 0.0.0.0 Application Timestamp: 5249525d Fault Module Name: SwiftSearch.exe Fault Module Version: 0.0.0.0 Fault Module Timestamp: 5249525d Exception Code: c0000005 Exception Offset: 0003f068 OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.48 Locale ID: 1033 Additional Information 1: 0a9e Additional Information 2: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789 Additional Information 3: 0a9e Additional Information 4: 0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789 I hope this is helpful.
Crashed on my Win7-64bit machine, shortly after showing the gui
This works under Win7PE too! This would be even better if you could use Ctrl+A to select more than one result file and then copy them all using right-click - Send To. At the moment you can only copy one file at a time. Would also be nice if there was a drop-down list for file types; e.g. video files, audio files, image files, so I could type in *fred* and select 'video files' and it would find all files with an extension used by video files (.avi,.mp4, etc.). This kind of search is hard to set up using reg expressions. Would also help if it had a MRU list so we could use previous searches. P.S. A 64-bit version would be useful so we can run it under WinPE 64-bit OS.
