Actually if I knew about "Everything",the thread title most likely will be about Everything and FARR,not about FARR and UltraSearch :p

I just saw UltraSearch while I was looking for an update for TreeSizeFree.

Well "Everything" is also really fast and the most important thing is,that the program have portable version(tinny executable,really small ini file and tinny database file that contains the locations of more than 50000 files)

The only thing that "Everything" lack is the launch history but that's not big problem because you can find what you are searching for extremely fast...Everything also check for changes(deleted/created file/folder)

The database of Everything looks like a compressed text file

I tried it couple of weeks ago but I didn't really like it and I read somewhere that the google desktop database is not small file and it always trying to scan for changes(I didn't like it how it worked even on my Virtual PC with have only one hdd and 8000 files)

The only issue I have with the method mouser is planning to use is that I now have to install something else on my system to use it.
Well if you want to search with the speed of Everything now but use FARR,you have to install something else anyway(the Everything plugin and the program Everything and the program to always be started)

Ok thanks for the explanation but why FARR is not maded to work for example like Everything(~500kb database for more than 60000 files is extremely small cost)...is there is something bad about the method Everything uses and that's why FARR is not searching that way too?
6  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: Just curious - what's the difference between FARR and UltraSearch on: October 29, 2011, 05:35:40 PM
Everything is unbelievably fast(it's either the same speed or faster)
I just started the program and I didn't change any settings...the program first scanned the hdd really fast and give me a list of all of the files I have on it and then when I just paste the same name I used for the other program,the result appear in an instant

All those files and folders and the database file that the program creates is ~500kb

You are probably not using the newest version of FARR...this problem doesn't exist there anymore
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Just curious - what's the difference between FARR and UltraSearch on: October 29, 2011, 09:52:50 AM
In speed of finding files...can FARR search this way too
I tried the widow search,FARR search and XYPlorer search but all of them are not nearly as fast as UltraSearch

C:\ - 46907 Files and 9605 Folders
D:\ - 22649 Files and 1344 Folders

69556 Files
23993 Folders
All of the programs are searching hidden/system folders too and no one of them are using any filters to make the search faster...I also restarted the PC and disable the indexing service before the test
 
Explorer -  1 minute and 47 seconds(after all of the tests I set the indexing service to manual and stop it and then the files were find for 60 seconds)
XYPlorer - 12 seconds
FARR - 16 seconds
UltraSearch - Almost 2 seconds

32 files

No matter what I try UltraSearch always find the files almost immediately(even just typing .exe)
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: October 19, 2011, 12:38:19 PM
For example you don't have any folder in the "Search Folders"(or uncheck all),now add some folder,add to it some modifier and blank modifier and also add some extension(for example exe)in extension restriction.

Now try to search normally for some file that is not exe...FARR will not find the file.

Is there is a way to search only for the extension restrictions only when I type the keyword modifier for that folder and if I don't type it,to search for files regardless of the extension

Tools folder with t and blank keyword modifiers and exe for extension restriction.

+t will search the Tools folder and display results that are with exe extension
without +t will search the Tools folder(and any folder added to "Search Folders" )but will display any file with the name I'm searching for(not just exe)

Maybe some special modifier(like +sall)to search for all file types...ignoring the extension restriction.
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: October 19, 2011, 07:41:45 AM
Again my first problem(from my first post)but this time extension

Add a folder named Tools and add t and blank as keyword modifiers and also for example exe for extension restriction.Now if I try to search for a file that is in that folder(just type the name without anything else...like I want to search all of the search folders)and that file is not exe,FARR will not find it

I thought that the modifiers and extension restrictions are only applied when you use +and the modifier.
Now the modifier only limit to where to search but the extension restriction settings on any of your search folders is always applied(no matter what you do,you won't find anything other than exe or folder in that Tools folder)

Is there is something like "blank" for keyword modifier but but extensions
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: October 06, 2011, 11:35:35 PM
5.Guess I didn't finish this sentence :p
An option to display the Launch History always in Small or Large view mode(everything else should remain the same)

6.Yes this will be good but I hope the search wont start again while switching modes like it is now

7.For example a option on which you can set the limit of the finded items.If you set 5 for that option,the program will start searching and when it reaches the limit(5)it will stop searching even if there are more files that could be possible results
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: October 06, 2011, 07:38:09 AM
Some questions(maybe I didn't understand something)and some ideas for features

1.In the Launch History settings,if I right click on some history item or add a new one,I can modify the location and scores but I can't do anything in the "Optional Modifier keyword"...clicking there don't do anything,it's like the text field is disabled(the mouse cursor don't switch to typing mode when I'm over that text field)

2.Is there is some reason "%FARRDIR%\scripts" to be always added even if I delete it?

3.What "+" is searching for when I just type "+" ...is it trying to display all of the files that are in the search locations?
If yes,why...when you type + with in mind to add some modifier,until you start typing it,the program is trying to display all of the files that you have in the search locations

4.Is the space button(one time)not acceptable as a "Required Alias Prefix"...it works until I restart the program.

5.Can the search result be displayed in normal view mode until it reaches what I set in "Max entries to display in normal result view" but the "launch History" items to be displayed in

6.Switch between normal and extended view hotkey(and if possible,when you are switching between view modes,to not start searching again)

7.Limit(on/off)the result...if the program find for example 5(you can set the limit)files/folders that match what you are searching for,to stop searching.
13  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: September 28, 2011, 12:15:56 PM
Ok now I understand,thanks
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: September 28, 2011, 12:04:07 PM
Then how to actually use those that are already installed(those that I see in the plugins directory when I install the program)
I see here for example,if I type "mrum" I will see the windows most recently items/documents but nothing appear on the result and even if I type mru,again nothing appear
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: I have some questions about FARR on: September 28, 2011, 09:47:45 AM
Thanks for the "blank" modifier,it works(the help file is too big and I guess I didn't reach reading that section yet :p )

About the other thing...for example I enter in C:\Program Files\Tools and then press Pause/Break.Now if I use some kind of modifier,plugin,alias to the search it will search only the Tools folder.This is not really than important but till now I searched this way...enter the folder=>right click on it=>search and search for what I want(either for file or text inside it)

And what about the plugins...I just installed the program and I don't see anything in Options=>Program Options=>Settings=>Plugins and Updates=>Click to Examine and Configure Plugins
The list is always empty no matter what I try.
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / I have some questions about FARR on: September 28, 2011, 09:12:12 AM
Maybe I didn't understand something

1.If I add optional modifier to the search folders to some directory,then if I don't write the modifier when I search,FARR will not search only in folder that don't have modifiers...for example if I add 3 different files with almost the same name into 3 different sub-folders and add the main folder to FARR and add some modifier,when I search for those 3 files,FARR will not display anything,but if I add the modifier then it will display all 3 files.

I thought that adding the modifier will limit the search to only a certain folder and FARR will search everywhere if I don't(including the location on which I set modifier)

Another example:
Add program files to the search directories and add for example "programs" for modifier.
Now if I search like this "+programs FindAndRun" FARR will display the result but if I don't add +programs,FARR will not find anything.

2.Am I doing something wrong or I didn't understand how it works...I don't have any plugins and anything that I try to install,don't appear.

3.Is there is a way when I start FARR with Pause/Break to make it search in the directory that I currently am(without typing the path to it...just add some alias and to make it search only there)
