EasyFind 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.

This gem is the best and easiest search application available for OS X / MacOS IMO. I also own a license to HoudahSpot but I keep getting back to EasyFind as IMO it is much faster at setting the search operation I need. HoudahSpot has probably more features but, if so, I have no use for them at all. Highly recommended, and thank you developer for making this available (and I wouldn't mind paying for it).

EasyFind is one of the very best applications I've ever used. Several times I have downloaded software that did not work out and EasyFind found all the bits and pieces that needed to go to the trash or be destroyed along with dragging the app to the trash. Great tool! Highly recommended!!

Love this app, but upgraded to Big Sur and it no longer searches subfolders/subdirectories. Anyone else have this issue or a fix? I've allowed all security permissions and drive access in Sys Prefs.

✫✫✫✫✫+++! Truly an excellent application! I've been using it for many, many years, and would not be without it. In fact, whenever Apple releases a new version of the Mac OS, I will not move to it until this application (along with 5 others) is compatible with that new OS. Like others, I've never had an issue finding something. Also, I use it to get rid of "associated files, folders, etc." whenever I remove an application. AppCleaner is good for that task, but there are times EasyFind finds other items associated with that deleted app.

I've been using it for years and it has never failed me. If a file exists, it will find it. The problem with Spotlight is that you never really know. I've looked for files with Spotlight and could not find them. I figured they were gone forever. Later I stumble across them. Who knows whether Spotlight had indexed and cached them properly. With EasyFind, you don't have to wonder if it really searched everything.

Brilliant. I accidentally deleted an important file and Easyfind allowed me to search my Time Machine hard drive and drag a copy out back onto my desktop.

The absolute best & most used application on my Mac, year after year! DEVONtechnologies has made (and updated) this gem for many years, and I'll never live long enough to tell them about all "The Thank You's" I own them!

This is the "best" little finder programme, easy, and well done. Just to become perfect some more search options can be added.

MacUpdate's description is not updated when it currently says that version 5 dates from "18 July 2014". What downloads is version 5 dated 3 March 2020. This should be corrected so not to scare away people who (like me) will not download apps that haven't been updated for several years. Read more here: https://www.devontechnologies.com/apps/freeware

I've used easyfind for years... It's maybe a bit slow, but it's the easiest app that finds everything. No spot on your hard drive remains unsearched. System folders, libraries, invisibles, content... Finds it if it exists. No worries, no doubts. It's free, but if they charged for it, I'd pay whatever they asked.
