Specify keywords to search for particular files on your computer. Apply multiple filters and set the size, as well as the date of creation, last modification or access of the files that you're looking for. View a list of detected files and preview them, save the results as TXT or CSV files.

Even though it’s a lighter, free version of the more powerful FileLocator Pro application, Agent Ransack is still a reliable, fast and convenient solution to find specific files on your system. It offers plenty of useful features and functions, including support for Perl compatible regular expressions or support for Boolean operators like AND, OR, NOT.

The searching speed is another remarkable benefit of Agent Ransack, as it is capable of providing the search results in a very short amount of time. Furthermore, when looking for files containing specific text snippets, the search keywords will be highlighted to spare you the need of opening every found file separately and look for the searched keyword within.

What I also consider a noticeable advantage is the fact that it allows printing the list with the search results or exporting it to CSV or TXT files. Used search criteria, such as specific file date filters, can be saved and re-loaded later.

Agent Ransack is also very simple and intuitive. Its self-explanatory interface allows even complete beginners to use it without a problem. As you can see, it’s a free tool that offers a lot of benefits and makes finding specific files on your computer a really simple, accurate and fast job.
