MasterSeeker 1.2

With this software I built, you can search for files & folders inside your PC. Just type what you want, and you will find it instantly.
Also it displays size of folders instantly, and even allow you to sort all your computer files & folders by size instantly.

All my friends that seen it says like "WOW".

What do you think? try it!

It is effectively incredibly fast - I'll give it a good test.

Hi, DxCK, and welcome to the DonationCoder site.   cheesy

The GUI layout of your software is nice and clean, just the way I like them.  May we assume that your software reads the Master File Table much like Everything, UltraSearch, SwiftSearch, etc?

And seeing the memory footprint can we assume that the cache is held in ram ? I can find no written cache.

@skwire: Thanks :-) . MasterSeeker really reads the Master File Table in NTFS drives, directly from the drive's stream, and processes it with heavy multithreading and micro-optimized code. MasterSeeker also supports FAT and FAT32 drives.

@joiwind: Thanks :-) The whole cache is held in ram. No files are used. I planing to optimize the memory footprint in future versions.

Tried it this morning after reading the above descriptions.  It is indeed a fine interface.  In particular I like the simple filtering tools you've built in that make narrowing easy and fast.  I've replace Search Everything with MasterSeeker thanks to the interface/capabilities.

A welcome addition would be the ability to export the found set to a text file so that one can work with the results.  I'd have a toggle between full path and file/folder name only.

Sorry 2 say but I do NOT like it for 3 reasons:

1) It needs Admin rights to execute (Win 7 Ultimate)
2) Does NOT find/ searches files on my removable USB Stick (exFAT).

Exactly the same behaviour as Everything that I am using (mostly) to search files.

3) Puts a file named 'MasterSeeker.UACBypass.1c30b0f01bab979f9a024ebfad9ee14f' into the C:\Windows\System32\Tasks directory!
Wtf?!

Positive: it is lightning fast!

Could you make it work with exFAT???

I have only just found this and was impressed enough to install it.

I do have one request, I would like to be able to set where it opens on the screen.

MasterSeeker tries to connect sites that seem not to be available anymore.

I checked Everything Search, or Swiftsearch, or NTFS-Search, but don't think they connect with the Internet.

Also when disabling 'Update' options.

MasterSeeker regulary checking for updates. This is normal behavior just like any other software on the market.
The Auto-Update only represent whether MasterSeeker update itself without asking or not. There is not way currently to disable the checking for update process.

planetnana is an alternative place for put the updates if something goes wrong with the main site. planetnana is shared hosting service so there is a lot of other accounts there that is not related to MasterSeeker.

Just discovered this awesome program and immediately switched over from Everything because you have also included fast file size search from MFT.

But i found one bug that cripples things a bit for me.
* Some file sizes are incorrect - result shows files which are actually few KB to few GB as random Tera, Peta and Exabytes (512TB up to 6,22 EB): schreenshot
Problem seems to be on one drive, it is 15TB GPT partition on NAS block device, formatted as NTFS with 16KB sector size. about 2% of all files are influenced by this, other 98% show correct size. Other drives are local disks <=2TB, MBR, 4KB sector and no bug there.

Also some other notes:
* Directory filter box, when selecting folder from "Browse" the result is not refreshed. Only when directly altering directory search string.
* Would be nice if program remembers window position and size, also column widths and visible columns
* Also multi window support would be usable future addition, right now when i open MasterSeeker.exe second time, it does not use index from previously opened instance sitting on tray and opens another instance.
* tray click open/hides window but because window open has some delay it is bit confusing. Maybe if double click also opens window its more intuitive.

EDIT: GPT disk NTFS details:
Version :                         3.1

@kiiver: I fixed the bug with wrong file sizes. Please leave me your email and I will send you a test version to verify the fix.
Also i fixed the "Browse" button bug.
Other requests I added to my TODO list.
