Finding Missing Files by Using QuickFinder

Most new computers ship with at least 40 gigabytes of hard disk space. The number of files you can store on a drive of that size is astounding—it's like trying to get your mind around how much a trillion dollars is. Believe me, you don't want to search through every folder on a 40GB drive “by hand” for a file, and that's assuming you can remember the name of the file you're looking for. No, when it comes to finding files, QuickFinder is the tool you want to reach for.

QuickFinder enables you to search for files based on the filename, content, date modified, or type. You can build a search that is as simple as looking for every file that contains the word “recycle.” Or, you can create a complex search designed to display a very narrow selection of documents (which is often the case when searching through legal, scientific, and medical documentation).
