Recent file seeker Description

Recent file seeker is a small-sized and portable tool that features advanced, yet intuitive options for locating recent files by taking into account user-defined criteria. It’s geared not only toward expert users, but also toward less experienced ones.

Portable app with a user-friendly GUI

The application’s packed in an executable file that you can copy to a custom directory on the HDD or to a USB flash disk to be able to launch it on any computer with no previous installers. It doesn’t need any DLLs to run and doesn’t change Windows registry settings. However, it automatically creates a plain text document with the scan results and places it in any folder you specify.

As far as the interface is concerned, Recent file seeker adopts a flat window that shows all available options in a well-structured layout that permits you to immediately dive into the scan configuration.

Filter files by type and various properties

By default, it looks for files with the .exe, .dll, .com, .vbs, .cmd .bat, .reg, .sys, .vbe and .scr extension. You can remove any of these file types and add new ones, set the maximum age to take into account (default is 30 days), scan recent folders, as well as verify file signatures and attributes.

Microsoft files, file descriptions and sizes, MD5 hashes, company names and file are included by default. Moreover, you can enable recursive mode for scanning subfolders and ask Recent file seeker to separate the matched item lines with a blank line.

Set the timestamp mode and examine log details

Before proceeding with the file search, you can indicate the path of the target, set the saving directory and file name of the log file with results, as well as change the timestamp base, so that the program analyzes the date of creation or last access, instead of the last modify date.

On scan completion, it automatically opens the log file and shows various statistics, such as the current date and time, file name pattern and root path to search, other applied settings, along with the name, description, size, hash error and publisher of each file.

Evaluation and conclusion

To sum it up, Recent file seeker contains comprehensive and approachable options for locating recent files using various settings. CPU and RAM usage was minimal in our tests, while scans were carried out quickly. It should meet the requirements of most users.
