Find Any File is, as its name says, an application that helps you find files within your drives. This program comes as an alternative to Mac's Spotlight tool, but with a more complete set of search filters, hence, you get access to more accurate results.

You can look for files by entering keywords related to their names, modification date, folder path, size, and many other. Once you finish selecting the proper search filters, click the Find button; in just a few moments, the app will offer you a detailed results list (if the files are within the selected folder).

The program also shows you the exact folder location of the found files and allows you to send to Trash, make invisible, and label them. There's also an option to permanently delete any of the located files, a feature which comes in handy when finding file duplicates.

An advantage of working with Find Any File is that it provides you with a very fast folder and drive search.

To conclude, Find Any File proves to be a reliable solution when it comes to searching and locating files within your Mac and external drives. The program is simple to handle, lets you use an unlimited number of scan filters, and offers you immediate results.

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.
