Search archives
« on: December 05, 2007, 03:55:29 AM »
I've made backups of gigs worth of webdevelopment related files and now I need to search through all of them (they're on several locations on the corporate network). They're in ZIP and RAR format. What's the best way to do this?
  • I was considering setting up a desktop search program on our development server and have it index all. Is there a better way?
http://search archives doesn't really help me. :(
  • Unpacking them all in their own folder is an option but can't say I'd like the prospect of that although then I can use locate.
  • I can convert all .rar files to .zip so windows own search can look through them, that is probably a good idea even if i go with a desktop search.

i use ZipScan for archives search.

If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

Archivarius searches within every known archive format, and many I've never heard of.

WinRAR has its own search function as well.
