FindOnClick is now already out for a while, so enough time for someone to copy the functionality of the the speed search in his/her freeware program.
Does anyone know of such a program?

For NTFS, "everything" should be as fast as it can be, http://www.voidtools.com/
there is also a nice command line app, again for NTFS (BOTH of which you should have already found if you only had searched the board before.... :cheers:) :

I don't consider a command line tool a replacement for a GUI app.

Will look into the other link. B)

Yep :poke:, though I need to point out that while the relationship could probably be defined "sick", a better definition could be, as I see it, two schizophrenics coming into contact:
http://en.wikipedia....i/Schizophrenia

to be more accurate, we both appear to suffer of "split personality" or "Dissociative identity disorder" :
http://en.wikipedia....entity_disorder

(in a very, very light form :poke:)

We both have, like everyone else, aspects of "Latin" and "German" mentalities.

In the sense of Latins usually being more prone to have intuitive/immediate/emotional/approximate approaches.

And Germans more to have exact/accurate/precise/thoughful/scientific ones.

Most people have one or the other largely prevailing, we appear to have more like a 50/50 split of them. :poke:

Simply when Medevil "plays" latin and I am in german mood, or viceversa when he is in german mood and I'm in latin one, something may happen :poke: :poke: :poke: :poke: :poke:

FYI:
http://www.boot-land...?...=6102&st=58
http://www.boot-land...?...=6800&st=11

Luckily enough, we both have a good sense of humour and we try our best to comply to Rule #12, thus what would normally result in :poke: always becomes a :poke: and even, from time to time, into a :poke:

:)

Taking the "emotional" way of thinking as a latin characterictic, is too much egoistic, Mr Jacobo.
Being greek, with 5 centuries back venetian genomes, and having met dozins of balkan & mediterranean people (from egypt, cyprus, italy, bulgaria, rumania, spain, syria ...) I ensure you that it is a pure mediterranean (/south european) point of view. Even in your country milanese people are much more snob than napoletanos.

And Germans more to have exact/accurate/precise/thoughful/scientific ones.

This is responsible for the teutonic & japanese industrial miracle of last century. This was responsible for the mind evolution of ancient atheneans, ionians & romans too, something that was lost when these people turned their mind from the rationalism to superstitious religious dark (orthodox here, catholix at right, muslims at the left), something that the ironically-called-barbarian germans avoided.

Most people have one or the other largely prevailing, we appear to have more like a 50/50 split of them. :poke:

It seems that the "germanized" half of your brain controls 95% of you, and respectively the latin element rules medevil.

Luckily enough, we both have a good sense of humour

that is the english way.

:poke: to our european schizophrenia

I'll gladly accept the use of "mediterranean" instead of "latin". :poke:

You see, even you can better if you apply yourself enough! :unsure: .

Actually I thought that the .exe in \bin\ was an older release, and that the new source files hadn't been compiled (which I still guess it is what happened :unsure: )

Source files: 05 January 2010
Compiled binaries: 20 November 2009

...and of course the binaries are in German...

Now, how many on the board are German, know English and define themselves as "programmers" (I presume that we must exclude form the game Peter/psc as he is being very busy right now carving variables constants in stone :unsure:) and thus may be able to BOTH translate the text AND compile latest source...:unsure:

Hmmm :unsure:, ... let me think ....:unsure:

I seem to seem to remember one whose nick starts with "m" and rhymes - not so casually :unsure: - with "upheaval"?

I checked the sources. And except for the newly included project files, they are identical.
So NTFS Search 1.1.0.6.exe is build from the latest source code.

Will see, what i can do for you about the language.
btw. Nicely asking goes differently! :unsure:

Yes preloading the MFT is a clever move.
Unfortunately the searching is a bit odd. It requires to define exactly 1 full filename.
Just defining the part that one is looking for, like in most other search tools, isn't good enough. Also looking for multiple strings, at the same time, isn't possible.

Might end up improving this program once my USB quest is over. :unsure:

Actually you can use the wildcard * allright, try clicking on Hilfe :unsure:.

If you are referring to the stoopid XP search that assumes wildcards, then you are right as much as the MS guys that created the Search are wrong.

Two things.
1. Try searchstring: *something*.Fileextension
it doesn't work.
2. There is nothing to translate. The program already switches automaticly between english and german.
If it doesn't work for you, there is some bug.

Yep, I have under XP italian a mixed interface, text and menu in German, but right click options and column heading in English. :unsure:

The wildcard * does operate strangely.

Example I want to find BOTH:
kav_rescue_2008.iso
kav_rescue_10.iso

These find them (of course often with MANY others):
  • *kav*
  • *av_*
  • *av_r*
  • kav*
  • *.iso
  • k*.iso
  • kav_*.iso
These find either of them
  • kav*e_10.iso
  • kav*0.iso
  • *e_10.*
  • kav*08.iso
  • *e_2008.*

These fail:
  • *av*08.iso
  • *av*0.iso
  • *e_1*.iso
  • *e_200*.iso

So, the "rule" seems to be:
You can use ONLY one * if you specify the extension (in any place).
You can use two * if you DO NOT specify the extension or if one is to specify the extension (all) AND the two * are at the beginning and at the end.

You are right. :unsure:

Queer. :unsure:

Just a quick hack. Check, if i got the right idea, what the problem with the language was.
edit: File removed, download is now a post below in Wonkos post.

Had to rename the file to zip, so the board would allow upload. Change it back to exe.

Perfect! :unsure: :unsure:

Wouldn't have been more appropriate to COMPRESS it as .zip or .7z (yes the board accepts both kind of compressed files)?

I am re-attaching it as a "real" .zip AND as a "real" .7z.

Please notice how having TWO compressed copies I am using just 83 Kb instead of the 128 Kb of the "renamed" .exe. (every little single byte has some small value :unsure:)

Thanks for the mod. :unsure:
