" UltraSearch Free looks for files and folders and presents the results in just a few seconds. The sleek tool uses the unique technology which enables the searching directly at the heart of the NTFS file system on your hard drive, the Master File Table (MFT). UltraSearch searches all directories on local drives at lightning speed and delivers what you are looking for in a clear overview. UltraSearch Free supports all current Windows operating systems. "
- UltraSearch does not maintain an index which is stored on your harddisk, but achieves its speed by working directly on the Master File Table (MFT) of the NTFS partitions.
- UltraSearch even identifies NTFS hardlinks.
- Simply enter a file name or a pattern like *.exe and see the first results while you are still typing.
- In addition, UltraSearch supports regular expressions and will search file content.
- Exclude folders, files or file types from searches via an exclude filter.
- Define file groups (such as movie files, text files etc.) and search for all file extensions the group contains.
- The search results can be sorted according to different criteria, printed or exported as text and CSV file.
- The recently used search patterns can be saved and selected from a dropdown list.
- UltraSearch can suggest patterns or autocomplete manually entered patterns automatically.
- UltraSearch can be started from the context menu of your Windows Explorer - starting a search within the selected directory could not be easier.
- Use UltraSearch wherever you like thanks to the portable ZIP version.
- Additional information like file size and file dates (last changes, last access and file creation) will be shown for all listed files. Naturally, the Explorer context menu is available inside UltraSearch.

Version 3.47th November 2022

Which file types should be searched during the content search can be set via a new settings dialog under Options > Configure file content search.
- New instances of UltraSearch can now be started via the File > New Instance menu item or the shortcut key CTRL + N in order to be able to carry out further searches in parallel. Your wish in our feature voting platform.
