What is Indexer++ ?
Indexer++ is an open-source desktop files and folders search utility. It is a Windows search replacement which is faster, supports entire file system search, filters and more. The Core search engine is written on C++ 11, uses Win API and STL, which ensures high speed and saves memory. Indexer++ directly reads and parses the NTFS filesystem master files table.
You can search your files using a command-line as well. ifind (Indexer++ find) implements a subset of the options of the Linux find command, so for Linux users it is easy to start right away. For those, who are not familiar with find command here is options description with some examples.
