Searches your Mac for files and folders fast and accurately.
 
1.6.6 (See all)

ProFind is a handy application that searches your Mac for files and folders. The tool comes with a different search approach that lets you find the desired items faster and more accurately than the classic search tools. This happens because the program searches both metadata and the disk to exclude irrelevant results.

The program has a simple and clear-cut interface. The largest part of the main window is taken by the result-panel. When no search operation is performed, this area showcases tips for smart inquiries. The Preferences menu allows you to personalize your searches. Therefore, you can set favorite folders for search, determine folders and extensions to be ignored during your searches, and tailor the sidebar and the result-panel view. Looking for specific items is easy. You can type in the Search Box a few characters from a file's name and the utility displays all items containing that group of characters. You can narrow the search to a specific location and select complex criteria that will filter the results by size, date, extension, label, and type of files. In addition, you have the ability to search by author, metadata, and text content. The results can be opened in Finder.

To conclude, ProFind offers smart and convenient solutions to find files and folders on your Mac. It combines comprehensive search filters with natural language search queries. Indexing is done quickly so you can access the files you are looking for in no time.
