Why Another Content Searching Utility?

" I was fascinated by how Windows Search finds files for me once. It helped me locate Word, Excel or PDF documents, so that I could free up time for more important tasks. This built-in Windows Search might be the finding application most of us needed and used. However, during use period, I found it couldn't meet my growing need. I often needed to find a document of which I didn't remember the name, but only know the contents. Windows 7 doesn’t always search for specific contents, especially when it comes to more obscure documents. This means if you enter a phrase, it will only find file name, but not actually look through what's in each single text. So I tried to find another tool which can offer me more features than what Windows Search provides, in order to search for specific content much more efficiently. Then I found Text Finding. It is really a best free multifunctinal app to search files containing text. It is featured with multiple search methods, auto categorization and results sorting, ect."
