UltraSearch Professional allows saving your custom file search, including all search syntax and filters. For later use, just load them up again and continue working.
Save all important search configurations for future file searches with UltraSearch Professional.
First create a search, then click the star icon in the Home ribbon that says "Save/Load search". Here you get a quick overview of all saved searches and your options. Hit "Save current search" and then decide on a fitting name for your search. We suggest choosing a very descriptive name, including most important information for later understanding.
What UltraSearch will save
UltraSearch Professional allows you saving search configuration surrounding:
- Search terms and search syntax
- File group filters
- File size filters
- File age filters
- Exclude filters
- Content search
- Including files and/or folders in the search
What UltraSearch will ignore
While UltraSearch Professional will save the most important configurations of your search, some settings will be ignored for a better usability.
For example, UltraSearch Professional will not save your selected drives as they might change in future searches. Likewise, UltraSearch will ignore file group filters that were created for file groups which does not exit anymore. This ensures that saved searches stay compatible even when you change global configurations over time.
Saved searches can help you out in various use cases, especially when performing recurring tasks.
Let's say you have an archive full of research papers. Every so often, you need to consult certain papers of 2022 for your studies and search for them on different hard drives using UltraSearch Professional's content search.
In this case, a file type filter for documents and a date filter set for the specific year can boost your search enormously. Set them up as filters for your initial search, save them, and then reuse them with all different search terms needed.
