EasyFind

4.9.3
18 July 2014

File, folder, and text contents search tool.

Overview

Unlike Spotlight, EasyFind finds files and folders by name or content using advanced Boolean operators similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent, wildcards, and phrases. It does not require indexing, is fast, and uses very little memory. Of course EasyFind doesn't just give you the files, it also shows previews and gives you many other options to work with them. And it's free.

I think it's worth mentioning that EasyFind probably has the most adorable icon ever used for a Mac application. =)

The same search of an APFS volume that takes EasyFind 135 seconds takes Find Any File about 5 (five) seconds, but don't hold your breath for an update any time soon, because "Full AFPS compatibility will come in an update but I can’t say when. We are in the middle of several very high-priority projects right now", and while that sounds promising, it's the same response I got when I emailed Devon about a bug around three years ago, and there's yet to be an update.

What I'm wondering is how Easyfind compares to Find Any File on a NON-APFS volume...faster, as fast, or similarly slower?

I've loved EasyFind for years and would love to give it 5 stars, but the lack of support for an app that is badly in need of support costs it big-time.

I have to completely agree with you!
I found a great and updated alternative in HoudahSpot, that can be used also as free software, without buy a license (appear sometimes a message that ask you to buy or continue trial). Fast, powerful and easy.

Outstanding search tool. It is excellent and super easy to use to search your entire hard drive. I use it often when deleting any application to find the often many support files that are NOT deleted by simply trashing the app. Many of these app support files are not even deleted when you use the developer's delete utility.

A favorite of mine. Although, the searches are pretty slow now in High Sierra. May be time for a little update.

It's not broken, I think. It just doesn't support "fast search" any more, because of Apple's new APFS disk format. It still works fine if you search non-APFS disks.

Try my program Find Any File - it does support fast search on APFS / High Sierra. I am also working on a new version 2 that will have an optional single window interface and instead display of results like EasyFind does. Stay tuned.

Appears to work fine on High Sierra APFS disk. Itis possible that it is not as fast as it was but I'm not sure of that.
