Find Files Fast with FindOnClick

Ever had to search for a particular file but could not remember the file name or where it was kept? Here's the scenario: a couple of weeks ago you wrote the perfect presentation document. As you were about to save it you were distracted by a phone call and inadvertently saved the file to the wrong folder. Now it's lost. You know the week you created the file and the Word file extension name as ".doc". You know too that using the standard Windows Search function will take far too long. You need that document now, so you open FindOnClick, enter the date range and file extension, then click OK. Within 10 seconds 25,000 folders have been scanned in your My Documents folder and FindOnClick presents a short list of .doc files. It takes another 10 seconds to scan the list and double click the file you're after.

FindOnClick lets you search for files on any NTFS or FAT (FAT 12, 16, 32) partition, including hard drives (internal and external), floppy disks, flash cards, Smart Media (SM), SONY Memory Sticks, IBM Micro Drives, Multimedia Cards (MMC), Secure Digital Cards (SD), and Zip disks, etc.

FindOnClick also offers a wide range of methods when searching. In addition to searching by file extension and date, search by specifying the file's path, the size of the file, the attributes of the file, or by the content of the file. You can even request FindOnClick highlights duplicate files.

Hi, my name is Vitaliy Evstigneev (pronounced "Yevstighnieyeff" - a familiar family name in Russia). I'm part of the software development and customer support team at 2BrightSparks. In our modest but bright company we all multi-task, so you can't say for sure where someone's responsibilities end and another's start. My background is in software development and I have used different technologies in a variety of industries. After gaining my master's in engineering (Aviation Technologies) I decided not to be a rocket scientist, but to do what I really like most - so here I am. I started working with 2BrightSparks less than a year ago after being invited for an interview by Richard Gascoigne and Michael J. Leaver. I immediately liked these people and the good news was they seemed to like me too. They invited me for a second interview a week later, this time at a local bar. Informality and hard work go hand in hand in our company.

I work on some of the OnClick Utilities (TrayOnClick, ScrambleOnClick, and FindOnClick), participate in SyncBackSE testing, and work on internal projects related to our software licensing database.

Developing good quality applications for different operating systems, different environments and different versions of Windows is quite a challenge. I like what I do and the company where I work. "Quality improvement" is one of our company's catch phrases, and I'm glad that I'm a part of this process (I don't like things half-done, I'm a pretty straight-forward "black-or-white-no-halftones" kind of person). Every product that we develop is dedicated to you, our customers. This is why your feedback is treasured by us. We appreciate how many of you take the time to communicate via our contact form, support ticketing, and forum, commenting on the features of our products, and informing us when something doesn't work as you anticipate. So please continue to say what you feel in your technical support tickets: I'm always there when you suggest a new feature, throw light on something that is not immediately obvious to you, and to help you find a solution when it's not immediately apparent.

Our company's virtual office works out pretty well for me. We hold many of our meetings in different places - often via Skype. I really like my home office which helps me to concentrate at the time I choose. This style of work is a good fit with my other hobbies: ice hockey (yes, there is ice hockey in Singapore); gymnasium; windsurfing, and sometimes - cooking for my friends (all my colleagues are among them).

I could keep on talking, but I must stop here and thank all users of our software for their loyalty, especially our licensed customers! Bye for now.
