Deadnode in System Utilities / File & Disk Management

User Rating: 3.1 (26 votes)

This tool searches an entire local NTFS filesystem extremely quickly - much faster than the built-in Windows search tool, which goes directory by directory - but still uses only documented, public API calls.


UAC 'workaround': Unlike Microsoft's own command line utilities such as chkdsk, TFind works with UAC, spawning an elevated instance of itself and feeding the results back to the original console window. Like everyone else, I soon got fed up needing to launch a new, privileged, console window for some tasks - so I implemented a solution!


NTFS only: TFind achieves its speed and efficiency by reading the NTFS MFT (Master File Table), which of course only exists on NTFS volumes
Administrator access required (only Administrators are allowed to read the MFT)
Local use only: TFind must be run on the computer holding the volume to search (although Mark Russinovich's excellent PSExec tool can be used to execute it remotely)
No GUI - command line only
Simple strings and wild-cards only
The pattern given is matched only against the file name, not the full path
