Agent Ransack download software for finding files on your PC or network drives. It is a ‘lite’ version of FileLocator Pro and is free for both personal and commercial use.
Benefits of Agent Ransack Download Software
Quickly find files on your computer
The app runs smoothly on all computers running a recent edition of Windows and you simply need to enter the keyword you are looking for, as well as the filename you are interested in. You can further restrict the search by selecting the folder you want to analyze – alternatively, you can search the entire drive, but this might take a long time to complete, especially if it is a large partition.
Set standard or advanced file search criteria
If you are an expert, you can apply more filters to the search, so as to ensure the results are the expected ones. More precisely, you can mention the approximate size the target files should have or you can specify the created, modified or last accessed date. Needless to say, if you do not know these details, you can simply disable them.
Once the search process is complete, Agent Ransack displays a summary with the detected files, and you can preview their contents without even leaving the app – this way, you can easily copy the path of the file you were looking for or open the folder where it is located.
Fast and intuitive file searcher
You can export the search criteria to a separate file that you can easily load whenever you want to perform similar searches, whereas the result list can be exported to the clipboard or as a file, be it TXT or CSV, suitable for later analysis.
