Find Stuff Fast with AstroGrep and Find Time!

Binoculars

Use AstroGrep to find what you need fast.

AstroGrep is a lightweight and fast-working utility that helps you find things on your computer.

Remember that sales copy you wrote awhile ago that was really catchy?  You can’t find it anywhere, and you want to use it in a product launch.

Well, this is a situation  where AstroGrep can help you find what you’re looking for quickly and easily.

AstroGrep scans the areas of your hard disk that you specify, searching for a specific word or phrase of your choosing. One of the things that makes it so powerful is that AstroGrep looks at the full content of files – not just their names.

And, of course, the more specific your search terms, the more specific your results will be.  So, for example, if I were to search for the word “time” on my computer, I’d have thousands of results.

But if I search for “The New Finding Time Boundary Template: 9 Simple, Sequential Steps to Find More Time and Recharge Your Energy!” AstroGrep would give me just the documents where I’ve used that specific expression.

AstroGrep is free, malware free, and you can download it at this link: http://astrogrep.sourceforge.net/download/

Here’s an overall positive review of AstroGrep from Softpedia, where Ana Marculescu writes:

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to search for files on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

AstroGrep sports a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to carry out most operations with minimum effort.

The program gives you the possibility to specify the target location, apply filters by specifying the extensions, as well as enter the text.

If you need to find a sentence or phrase that you remember writing in a particular document, but you can’t quite retrieve the location or name of the file, AstroGrep is something you may want to explore.

Is this a tool that you’ve heard of?  One you might be interested in?  Are there other search utilities that you find helpful for finding stuff (and finding time)?

Drop me a line – I’d love to hear!
