NTFS-Search I got from here <!-- m -->http://sourceforge.n... ... e/download<!-- m -->


BareGrep Pro isn't fast at all. I just need something to search text inside files as this feature seems be missing in Windows 7.

grepWin is another that can search text inside files. The developer just released new version.

Gave Grepwin a spin, wasn't immediately clear how to search, for me, until I looked at the screenshot. Seems that you need to type an awful lot to get it working. Anyway, haven't found any commandline for it.

Locate32 has capabilities to search inside files, but it's nowhere near as fast as Everywhere.

Locate32 uses Indexing which I rather not use. grepWin was recommended in some microsoft forums which is why I gave it a spin. It can do text search inside files without any problems. There are plenty of others you can find through googling but I don't think there are any more MFT searchers, I might be wrong.
