Portable Hddb 3.1.4
If you want to make sure that the lookup process takes as little time time as possible, you can use a specialized application, such as Portable Hddb.
A portable utility for quickly finding items on your PC
Unlike Hddb, the portable edition does not require any installation, as it stores all its configuration files within the same folder as the executable. Also, you can carry the app on a removable USB flash drive and launch it only when you want to quickly locate a file on the local HDD.
The graphic interface is not only intuitive, but also as minimalistic as possible, to ensure that you can focus on finding your data, without being distracted by redundant menus or buttons.
Once you run Portable Hddb, you can create an index with all the items on your computer - even if this initial indexing might take some time to finish, all subsequent searches will be performed much faster.
Find files and folders on fixed or removable drives
Depending on the data you are interested in, you can rely on Portable Hddb to find files or directories, by simply entering the keyword.
Alternatively, you can use wildcards, if you are not sure about the filename - the main window will instantly display a detailed list with all the items matching your criteria.
You can also set Portable Hddb to show the folder sizes, alongside the full path and the last modified data for each record.
Export the file list to TXT for later analysis
All in all, Portable Hddb can come in handy to all those who need to a hassle-free solution for searching files and folders on their computers.
