AimAtFile Fast File Search is an effective way to find documents on a computer by their contents. It provides content search functionality based on Microsoft Indexing Service included in Windows 2000/XP/2003. You can search for files of many types: Microsoft Office documents, HTML, PDF, Plain text, Media files, etc. AimAtFile provides a document preview. It lets you see the contents of found documents without opening them in their editing programs.
Microsoft Indexing Service scans files in the background as a low-priority process and AimAtFile requests the index to return search results instantly. Unlike the most of third party file search utilities AimAtFile does not scan all files each time you try to find any file. Some of third party search tools use their own indexers. Windows already includes the native powerful Indexing Service so it is not necessary to install additional indexers into the system. The only thing you need is a right tool to query the built-in Indexing Service. AimAtFile Fast File Search is the tool.
AimAtFile Fast File Search can query Indexing Service catalogs on remote computers in Microsoft Network. So it gives an opportunity to search for documents in your corporate Local Area or Virtual Private Networks.
The program is easy to use. The interface is very intuitive. Run the program, type a query in the Query field, click Search and you will get a list of relevant documents. A query may be simple (just words that target files contain), a Boolean expression, or a more precise query written in the Indexing Service query language.
