Search inside compressed files

6 / 10

When we search for a file by means of the search tool that is included by default in Windows, we run the risk of not finding it, because it may be stored inside a compressed tool.

Power Search analyzes the contents of the compressed files in ZIP, CAB, TAR, RAR, ARJ, ACE, ZOO, LZH, ARC and CAB formats, and detects all the files that we may be looking for, thus surpassing where the system's traditional search engine doesn't reach.

The program is very simple. All we have to do is establish the terms, the folder and the search formats, and Power Search will instantly offer us all the results that it finds as it reads the hard drive.

We will be able to access each one of them by double clicking on them.

It will open the File Explorer with the folder in which we can find the file, or compressed file in which the file we are looking for is stored.

It works without having to install it, and it can export the results of each search to a TXT document.

Ideal for those that have to work with many compressed files. Power Search is the perfect complement to keep track of all the files that are stored on our PCs hard drive.
