Ever save a file or want to find a picture and don't know where you put it?

If you want an awesome free program that will scan your whole hard drive in record time, you want to check out Agent Ransack.

 

Agent Ransack - Free File Searching Utility

Do you ever run into the case where you save a file to your hard drive and forgot where you put it?  You want to find a certain file and not sure where to look?  You don't always get something for free, but this is one application I would recommend you downloading and installing.  Make sure you download the correct 32 or 64 bit version for your windows.  If you are unsure what version of Windows you have, Go in the Control Panel and System and it will either say 32-bit or 64-bit.  If you are using Windows XP, you will probably be running 32-bit and it will not list 32-bit in the System information.

This program runs very fast, one client ran this and it took 52 seconds to scan his machine for a filename through 28GB.    I did another test on my laptop and it took 31 seconds and scanned through 168GB. You can also scan containing text, size of a file, or modified dates as well.

Make sure when you download the software you install the correct version either 32 or 64 bit per what your Windows system is running.  After you install this, you can always RIGHT Click on the Recycle Bin or it will put itself in the Programs list.

Agent Ransack is a free 'lite' version of FileLocator Pro. It is free for both personal and commercial use.
