UltraSearch
Locate files and folders in a flash with this ultra-speedy search tool

UltraSearch is an easy-to-use free search tool which can locate files and folders almost instantly.

The program achieves its high performance by directly accessing the NTFS Master File Table (MFT), which holds details on every file and folder on your PC. And so it's able to return results immediately, typically in around a second or two, without having to waste time or resources building an index: just enter a keyword and watch the results appear.

This only works with NTFS-based drives, of course. Use it on a FAT-based drive, or to search by content alone, and UltraSearch runs at more normal speeds.

Version 2.1.0 (Changelog):

•UltraSearch now supports searching for file content.

•The drive list has been completely redesigned. It has been moved from the bottom of the result list to its top.

•Use the new drive list to search in single folders or entire drives.

•The new 'File type selection' enables the user to search for specific file groups or file types (e.g. 'Office Files', 'Video Files'). The file groups can be configured via 'Search > File Groups...'.

•UltraSearch now supports command line parameters, which can be used to start UltraSearch with specific search parameters.

•The icons have been revised to fit the style of Windows 10.

•The search results are now displayed even faster.

•The option 'Autocomplete Patterns' has been replaced by the option 'Suggest Patterns'.  This option displays a dropdown list beneath the search field containing one or more suggested patterns based on the recently used search patterns.

•The automatic update of the MFT-Index in the systems RAM can now be deactivated via 'Options > Include file system changes'.

•A progress dialog is now displayed during the export of large result lists.

•A new menu entry with information about an advanced search with TreeSize (search network drives, search for duplicate files and much more) has been added.

•The menu entry 'Options Toolbar' has been renamed to 'Toolbars'. The submenu entry 'Show' is now called 'Options Toolbar'.

•The advertising banner has been removed.

•Bugfix: A bug concerning the sorting order of search results during a search has been fixed.

•Bugfix: If the option 'Skip User Account Control Warning' was activated and the program had been renamed or moved to another folder, UltraSearch did not start. This bug has been fixed.

•Bugfix: Searching for file paths ending with a dot produced wrong results. This problem has been resolved.

•Bugfix: In some cases the exclude filter excluded the wrong files. This issue has been fixed.

•Bugfix: The preview of the excluded files in the exclude filter now also displays the exclusion of hidden files.

•Bugfix: Numerous other bugfixes and improvements have been implemented.

Verdict:

While it's not a replacement for Windows Search, UltraSearch can be a useful addition, as the program makes it very quick and easy to search for files and folders by name.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
