AstroGrep 4.3.1

A powerful and intuitive program that helps you perform search operations, while allowing to apply filters, such as file extension, size, and date
AstroGrep is a lightweight software utility built specifically for helping you perform search operations in a user-defined location.

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you to need to search for files on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

AstroGrep sports a clean and intuitive layout that allows you to carry out most operations with minimum effort.

The program gives you the possibility to specify the target location, apply filters by specifying the extensions, as well as enter the text.

When it comes to configuring the search options, you can make the tool look for regular expressions, and case sensitive or whole words, and include the subfolders in the search process.

Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to filter the search results by date and size, skip hidden files and directories, create exclusion lists, copy the information to the clipboard, as well as open files or folders.

Since it doesn’t require much computer knowledge to configure the dedicated parameters, even rookies can master the entire process with just a few clicks.

During our testing we have noticed that AstroGrep carries out a task very quickly, and no errors showed up throughout the entire process. However, it eats up CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be affected.

To sum things up, AstroGrep proves to be a reliable application that bundles a decent feature pack for helping you perform search operations. Thanks to its intuitive layout, it is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
