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 performing 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 will produce 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 search patterns using Boolean and

Wildcard queries, date ranges, file types, and much more. Combine special search characters to produce

more refined results and really hone in on the file you are looking for. The text shorthand options make

both simple to highly-defined, more complex search queries, fast and easy!

Search Only Specific Folders and Filter by File Types & File Kind

If you have a rough idea of where your file is, 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 folders. 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!

Get More Information on Your Files From the "More Lore" Sidebar

Let the More Lore Sidebar guide you with quick helpful tips and help you discover more about the files

you are looking for. View related files that were created, modified, or opened on the same day as your

selected file, or compare two files with each other to learn if they are identical or different. View a

histogram of your search results list or view related searches displaying information such as similar file

types and dates, other files by the same author, plus much more. Discover files you may not have even

realized you still had…With DataLore you can do so much more with your files, that goes beyond just

finding them.

Search External Drives and Networked Macs...All At the Same Time

Search locally on your own Mac, search other Macs on your network, or search multiple external hard

drives, quickly and easily. You can even search multiple locations all at the same time if you wish. You

can search an entire computer or search only specific selected folder(s), and drag and drop files from the

results list to copy them from the remote computer over to your own computer. Easily add and remove

shared folders from other networked Macs and quickly turn off remote access from the handy menu bar

icon. The built-in sharing tool makes it easy to connect to other Macs running DataLore, without the

need for passwords or mounting a networked drive. Searching other Macs and drives is just as fast and

easy as searching your own Mac!
