Very useful for someone like me who works with texts and often has to find stuff from years back. A life-saver!

This is the search tool with a nice GUI I was looking for, it has a useful user manual and is up to date. Was easy to find text in directory/files using query language (boolean). Better than searchmonkey imo.

Funciona como el buscador de Windows 7, busca todo, sólo hay que poner los parámetros, pero funciona muy bien, debería ir integrado en todos los menús!

Excellent: powerful and clear. Unfortunately the Software MAnager version is not up to date (1.16 and not 1.17, that has good new features). But it works well.
