Review

This is a free program for Mac OS 10.4 and later that lets you search for files on your disks, primarily on HFS formatted ones.
Contrary to Spotlight, it does not use a database but instead uses the file system driver's fast search operations, where available.

This lets you search for file properties such as name, dates, size, etc., but not for file content (use Spotlight for that).

Find Any File can find files that Spotlight doesn't, e.g. those inside bundles and packages and in inside folders that are usually excluded from Spotlight search.

Finally, it is fast. Not always as fast as Spotlight, but faster than other, similar file search tools you might find for the Mac.

Fast, reliable for searching a volume, all mounted volumes, or just one folder. Unlike Spotlight it will search inside the system folder, but it does not search inside documents. I use it many times every single day and could not live without it. Author is responsive to help requests .... I can't recommend this app enough.
