Explore Files, Folders, Archives on Your PC and Network

PowerGREP's built-in file selector shows you all files, folders and archives on your own PC, and on your local network. With just one click, you can include or exclude individual files, all files in a single folder or archive, or all files in a folder and its subfolders. Tick and cross marks show you which files will be included in the next search at a glance.

After searching, you can readily see how many matches were found in each file. For folders and archives, you can see how many matches were found in how many files, out of how many files searched. Quickly access files with search results by showing only files searched through, or only files with search matches.

File Masks

Include or exclude files based on their file type (extension) or file name. Enter any number of traditional file masks, or use regular expressions.

File Dates

Limit the search to files that were modified, or not modified, during the past several hours, days, weeks, months or years. Or, specify a range of exact dates before, after or between which the files should not have been modified.

"The new file selector is fantastic - a huge improvement over almost anything else I've seen. I have often found it annoying when I have several directories spread out across the filesystem that I want included in one search. This generally required either complex file masks of multiple searches in the past. Now once I get to work on a given project, it's all right there and can be modified in no time."
