For fast search results UltraSearch does not use an index but uses the working memory (RAM) to store the file information. Depending on the number of files and folders on your hard drive, this can be several hundred MB. In order to keep the amount of RAM required as small as possible, please select only the drives or folders you want to search in the drive list. If you deselect a drive, the file information for this drive will be deleted directly from the working memory.
Yes. The full version of UltraSearch Professional offers the possibility to create your own portable version. To do this, UltraSearch Professional must first be installed on a PC. Then start UltraSearch Professional and select "Options > Create portable installation".
You can find further information in the UltraSearch Help in the chapter "Installation".
For the freeware UltraSearch Free we offer the portable version as a zip file for download on our website.
UltraSearch does not support relative paths in the drive list. Specified paths must be clearly related to a drive, for example
'C:\Users\Default\Downloads' rather than 'Downloads'.
In order to move the UltraSewarch settings to a new PC, please open the '%appdata%\Jam Software' folder and copy the subfolder 'UltraSearch' to the corresponding folder on the new PC. If the '%appdata%' folder on the new PC does not contain a subfolder called 'Jam Software', please create it manually.
Searching for file content can be slow, because the whole content of a file has to be analyzed. In order to speed up this process, the content search should be further restricted by additional search criteria like 'file name' or 'file type'.
