FileSearchy 1.22
A powerful desktop search tool

FileSearchy is a free (for personal use) desktop search tool for Windows.

The program runs very fast searches for file names. We launched FileSearchy, typed HELP and pressed enter, and it found and displayed details on more than 2,100 files (where the name contained the text HELP) in less than a second.

You can further customise your search by file location (look in just a particular folder or tree), modification date or size range.

Unusually for this type of program, FileSearchy is also able to search the contents of some file types (plain text, PDF, Office). This worked well for us, although if you have problems the authors recommend installing the Microsoft Office 2010 Filter Pack.

If you spot a file which looks interesting, then clicking it displays any text matches and the sentence where they were used (useful for context). You're also able to browse the contents of the whole file, although only in a plain text view (you won't see the images or formatting in a PDF file, say). But this doesn't really matter, as double-clicking any matching file launches it in your default viewer.

There are some unexpected extras. FileSearchy supports regular expressions for search terms. A tabbed interface means you're able to have several searches open at once. And you can copy your search results (or one or more of the files) to the clipboard for easy reuse elsewhere.

A commercial FileSearchy Pro version extends the program further with support for searching the content of eBooks (EPUB, FB2, MOBI), as well as filtering by file category and exporting search results as a CSV file. It's yours for $24.95.


FileSearchy is small, simple and fast, with a good range of search features. It's not portable, unfortunately, but if you just need an alternative search tool for your own PC then it should work very well.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
