Power Search is a recently launched search utility that allows users to find for any files inside archive files quickly. Unlike Windows default search, it searches in both file systems and archives. You can add multiple files names, wildcards, and directories. There are two additional search options given – Include all files in search and Include directories in search.
The supported formats are, ZIP, CAB, TAR, RAR, ARJ, ACE, ZOO, LZH, ARC and CAB. You can choose which archive you want to search in, to search in all archives you will need to check all formats. When done, hit Search Now to begin the search operation.
I performed a search on my drive and it found all files that were in my blog’s ZIP and RAR archives. The overall operation was quite fast, no wonder the author named it Power Search.
