Effective File Search is a file management application that can search any file on the computer. It has different modes employed in finding a file. Finding a file through the "Main Tab" searches the computer depending on the file's name. It also searches the computer depending on the file's folder. Finding a file through the "date" tab searches the computer based on the date specified. The program can also search for files depending on any strings of text typed by the user. There is also a way to look for files depending on its size. The program can also let the user search for files within multiple search parameters (file name, size, and date in just one query.)
Effective File Search can search for a number of file formats. It can look for Microsoft Office files, HTML, PDF, and more. The program also has the functionality of Windows Explorer. This means there are icons and the drag and drop option for moving files. Files can also be copied using the program. Furthermore, these files can also be renamed and deleted.
The program can also search for hidden files. It can also search for files in a local network, that is, multiple computers connected with each other.
