What is DataLore?
Are you looking for a better front end to Spotlight? Do you need a search tool that performs quickly and reliably?
DataLore is a new and unique front end to Spotlight that makes it even easier and faster to search and share files not only on your own computer, but also on other computers on your network. For power users who need speed, reliability and the ability to perform complex search queries or more highly defined, custom searches, look no more – Try DataLore!
DataLore gives you our innovative Search-As-You-Type technology allowing you to search and find files at lightning fast speeds. Search filenames, filetypes, content and more. Include and Exclude folders from the search to find your files even faster, or narrow down the results by filetype. DataLore also offers you an “All in One” Search Solution that contains both a dock application and a companion menu bar application for controlling remote access. And the logical, uncluttered interface doesn’t slow you down with a flood of unnecessary buttons and drop down menus.
Searching is live and dynamic. DataLore will start working right away while you’re typing to locate files. There are no start or stop buttons to press – just type and search! DataLore is like your “second brain”!
And with the added value of network searching and sharing, any home or business will quickly discover the efficiency and
ease that DataLore adds to workflow and collaboration. If you have one Mac, you’ll love DataLore for its speed! If you
have more than one Mac, you’ll go GAGA over the speed and flexibility of finding and retrieving files for all of your Macs,
while comfortably seated at your Mac du jour!

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 and Exclude Folders
If you have a rough idea of where your file is, or where it definitely is not located, you can narrow down the results so fast, by selecting folders to include and exclude from your search. And it’s just that simple!
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 computers 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 folders to search and which ones to exclude, and narrow down your search by excluding specific file types from the search results.
Use the handy menu bar app to control who can search your computer, what folders they can and cannot search, or to grant certain computers no access at all. You can restrict access to specific folders and exclude folders from being accessed. 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 at anytime without having to open the main application first.
DataLore’s network searching makes it so much more convenient and faster than using the Finder, or using 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 computers.
