Innovative “Search-As-You-Type” Technology
Search as fast as you can type! Perform simple and complex searches all via a text entry box. Simply start typing in the Search Text Box and DataLore will start searching right away. No need to press start or stop, or click on multiple drop down menus. DataLore will start searching with you, will stop with you, and will change with you, responding immediately to your every move. This unique text entry method for making quick searches, from simple to complex, works with you while you type, without any interruption. When you want to change or adjust your search criteria, simply change the text and DataLore will follow your lead, moving with you full steam ahead. DataLore works with you and produces the results faster than you can say “Go DataLore!”
Powerful Text Shorthand & Special Characters
The simple search text box can perform powerful searches using a type of “shorthand” that makes it easy to do simple or complex searches, with special characters to define the search. Perform simple searches with words separated by spaces or perform more complex searches using Boolean and Wildcard queries, date ranges, file types, and much more. Combine special search characters to produce more complex search patterns. The text shorthand options make custom or more complex search queries, fast and easy!
Include Specific Folders and Filter by File Type & File Kind
If you have a rough idea of where your file is located, or where it definitely is not located, and you know what file type you are looking for, you can select to search for a specific file type, and to search for it in selected folder(s). You can further narrow down your search by excluding specific file types from the search results, and by specifying which kind of file(s) to display in the search results, and which kinds to not display. And it’s just that simple and fast!
All-in-One Search Solution
DataLore offers you a main application along with a companion menu bar application that acts as a mini-server for granting access to other Macs on your network. Use the main application to perform all of your searches – choose where to search, what to search for, and what file types to look for. View the results immediately. Select which computer to search – your own or another one on the network; select which folders to search, or search any and all folders, and narrow down your search by excluding specific file types and file kinds from the search results.
All of the same features and capabilities for searching locally, can also be used to search other Macs on the same network, as well as to search multiple external hard drives.
Use the handy menu bar app to control who can search your computer, or to grant certain computers no access at all. You can turn remote access off instantly whenever you want. This companion mini-server lives in your menu bar so that you can launch a new search anytime without having to first open the main application.
DataLore’s network searching makes it so much more convenient and faster than using the Finder or a thumb drive, or other alternative methods. No need to go back and forth between computers, no need to log in to a computer, and no need to know someone else’s password. Just search and find – it’s convenient, fast, and easy!
As with all of our other products, DataLore is lean and powerful with a clean, easy to use interface. And you can get it today at the special ZOT price of only $9.95! And that’s not all… This low price gets you one serial number that can be used on up to 5 Macs.
