What is WizFile?
WizFile is a very fast file search utility that can find files on your hard drive almost instantly. The entire file system can be quickly sorted by name, size or date. WizFile currently only supports NTFS formatted hard drives but support for other hard drive types is planned.
 
What makes WizFile so fast?
When scanning NTFS formatted hard drives (most modern hard drives use this format), WizFile reads the hard drive's Master File Table (MFT) directly from the disk. The MFT is a special hidden file used by the NTFS file system to keep track of all files and folders on a hard drive. Scanning for files this way completely bypasses the operating system (Windows) and provides a huge performance boost.
 
How to Search
Just start typing and search results will appear. While WizFile is active is will monitor your hard drives for file changes. Any changes that affect the current search results will update on screen as they occur.
 
Wildcards
Use a * (asterisk) to match and one or more characters. Use a ? (question mark) to match any single character. For example, to search for all files that start with the letters "da", type in:
da*

To find all files starting with the letter a with "d" as the 3rd letter, type in:
a?d*

To file all files with a particular extension, e.g. all mp3 files:
*.mp3

Multiple Search Items (AND/OR)
Separate multiple search terms with a space. The space acts like an "AND" operator. For example to seach for files of type ".mp3" that also contain the word "dance", type in:
*.mp3 dance

If your search term has a space in it use double quotes around it, e.g.:
*.mp3 "dance hits"

Use the vertical pipe (|) symbol as an "OR" operator for multiple search items. E.g. to find all .mp3 and .wav files:
*.mp3|*.wav

To find all .mp3 and .wav files that contain the word "dance":
*.mp3|*.wav dance
 
Match File Name Only
If this option is selected the search will only be applied to the file name (the path is not searched)

Match Entire Path
If this option is selected the search will be applied to the entire path. If the search term contains a "\" (backslash) then the search will be performed on the entire path regardless of the current "match" setting. This is slower than a file name only search.

Closing WizFile
The "close" and "minimize" buttons at the top right of the WizFile window will minimize WizFile to the system tray where it will remain active. Double click on the WizFile tray icon to restore WizFile.

To close and exit use the "File->Exit" menu option or press Alt+F4. You can also right click on the tray icon and select "exit".

Start With Windows
Enabled this option to have WizFile start automatically when you log into windows. It will start minimized to the system tray. This option is on by default in the non-portable version. If you're using the portable version and you enable this option please remember to disable it once you're done.
 
What's new?
WizFile 1.03 (11 April 2018)
  • Memory use is significantly reduced (especially in the 64 bit version) and it will now attempt to swap out as much memory as possible to the paging file when it's not actively displaying search results. It should have minimal impact on any other memory hungry applications when it's running in the background.
  • Fixed bug that could crash WizFile if a lot of file changes were occurring while viewing a huge result set
 
WizFile 1.02 (9 April 2018)
  • First official release. Thanks to the following translators:
