DFind App User ,


I was hesitant to spend 9.99 on an app that I could not try first but I was so desperate to find an app that really does search the content of all my word files that I gave this a try. NOT ONLY DID IT TAKE 20 MINUTES TO SCAN ONE FOLDER OF WORD FILES BUT IT DID NOT FIND THE CONTENT I SEARCHED FOR AS A TEST — BECAUSE I KNOW EXACTLY WHERE THE FILE IS THAT CONTAINS THAT NUMBER!! I honestly feel like I deserve a refund as this app does not even do what the description states that it does. If there were a negative rating then I would have sellected that.

Ability to search by time is a life saver

No matter what tools you use, a lost file may not always turn up in search results for name, keywords, even filetype. Searching for a lost Pages document was impossible using other methods, but DFind uncovered the bizarre .zip file and related pages document that no other search could uncover. Using the time it was last saved and the file size, I was able to narrow the file results very quickly.

It’s important to note that DFind turned up files otherwise hidden from OS X, even after revealing all hidden files using a Terminal instruction. This was a truly lost/deleted document.

Really useful tool, almost fixes Catalina...

Need to seach a directory for a certain filename? This will do that. It allows you to open the files in the Finder to then edit them. Of course, the listed menu shortcut for that is broken, but the menu item works.

If I could combine this with Multi Renamer to find the files and fix the names that would be great.

Even better would be the ability to rename the thing I find.
