What Our Users Say
Many small business owners are very happy with the OCMC FileScanner. Architects, builders, lawyers, consultants, accountants, dentists, doctors do have 100,000 and more files on their computer. By using the OCMC FileScanner they can quickly find files that would be lost or take ages to find with Windows Search.
Just read below what they have to say about the benefits of using the OCMC FileScanner by clicking on a button.
I use the OCMC FileScanner every single day, both for work and private use. I do have 190,000 files on two external and one internal drives. Windows Search searches each drive separately, which takes ages, as its indexing capacity is slow.
The OCMC FileScanner allows me to type 2 letters and I quickly find the file in a shortlist, without that all files have to be searched (again). Both external land internal drives are ready for search, with no impact on memory.
In addition, one prerequisite of Windows Search is that users have organized their files with good names and categories. If you have not or make mistakes by saving a file in a wrong folder, as I do, then OCMC FileScanner is your way out as it always finds your files.
What I also like a lot is that you can create your own search category with extensions that are different from the ones Windows Search provides. I can also adapt existing categories, which makes the display of search results very clear and uncluttered as they only display files that have the required file extensions. I use a number of different software programs, with each their own set of extensions. Now I can search per program and its specific extension. This does save me a lot of time (and frustration).- M., JanArchitectuur
My building company uses the OCMC FileScanner every single day as main search tool. We do have many files, nearly a 100,000 and we were really frustrated by the slowness of Windows Search. With the OCMC FileScanner we can now quickly find our files, just by typing in a few letters and selecting the extension. We love it and it is really value for money.

As a consultant, I do have lots of files, 60,000 in around 15,000 folders. I really dreaded the moment when I needed to find a file, as Windows Search takes ages to search all my folders. Usually, I would get up and take a coffee…and another one…
The great thing about the OCMC FileScanner is that I just type a couple of letters and it displays immediately a shortlist of files. In more advanced searches, I use also time-frames and type of file (e.g. PDF) to quickly narrow down my search results. Basically, less coffee breaks now, but just the easy to quickly find the file and continue working.
