Why SmartFinder?

SmartFinder makes use of a proprietary operating system-independent index to find files faster.

You decide which folders to make searchable and when to synchronize search results.

Search by file name, folder name or contents: search text by exact phrase, all words or partial match using wildcards.

Refine search results for numerous metadata (authors, publishers, keywords, …) or parameters like folders path, file size and much more.

Text Preview provides a sneak peek into the files you’ve found without the necessity to open them. In the text preview you will find highlighted the words you search for.

You can also search for duplicate or similar files to the one you found with one click!

Search your files also from other devices in your network (cell phones , other MAC/PCs or other) by accessing via browser (Chrome, Safari, Edge, …).

Search on all the files on a Cloud Storage (ICloud, OneDrive, Google Drive, …) that you have shared on your PC/Mac.

SmartFinder does NOT collect data and all processing is done on your device.
Your files stay on your PC/Mac. Your data remains your own.
