VD File Searcher is desktop application for finding local files.
It will help you easily and very quickly find files and directories on your local hard discs and other storage drives. Developed in Java programming language and based on the fastest open source Lucene search engine, it runs on every platform and find files in a second no matter how big your file system is, or how many files you have there.
Searching for files is feature present in all operating systems. In Linux, there is
and in modern versions of Windows all you need to do is click
Start button and just start typing.
Also many file managers like Total Commander or Double Commander also have embedded find files function.
So, why another application for it?
The main idea is to have application with intuitive interface, which finds exactly what we want, and does that quickly. All three requirements are hardly met in existing integrated operating system searches or file managers. Operating system searches often results in lot of unnecessary or system files, or don't scan all drives, and file managers don't index files, so their searching is slow. VD FileSearcher tries to fulfill them all, see complete list of features below.
