Find any file with Scherlokk

Scherlokk is a lightning fast file search utility build for precise and reliable search of every file which meets the search criteria. Music, pictures, bookmarks, documents, etc can be found quickly and easily. Search can be made on any kind of build in volume, portable volume (pendrives, memory cards, USB drives), network drive (AFP, SMB, FTP), etc.
The built-in hex editor allows you to quickly edit all file types.

It does not matter if the searched file is hidden or system. The file does not even need to be indexed by macOS to be found by Scherlokk. When searching with size range, Scherlokk calculates and displays all folders which fit in the range.

Why use Scherlokk rather then Spotlight:
• Scherlokk searches through 'real' files instead of the Spotlight's index. The index is not always up to date and does not contain all files.
• Extremely fast search engine finds your files quicker than competition.
• Scherlokk shows search results in a flat or hierarchical view which helps to find out which file is the one you need and how files are located in the folders structure.
• Clean and easy to use interface.

Which files can Scherlokk find?
Since Scherlokk is not based upon the Spotlight's index, and has its own, powerful search engine, it will find every single file on any accessible volume in your computer.

Scherlokk can compare any files (text or binary) and displays their differences, taking into account insertions or deletions. It uses a sophisticated algorithm for finding similar blocks in both files and shows them as a list of differences.

Scherlokk has built in decoders for most popular string-formatted files. This include PDF, DOC, DOCX, ODT, XML, RTF, RTFD, XLS and XLSX files. All other files are "raw" searched through.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is Scherlokk based on Spotlight?
Scherlokk has its own search engine, although it also uses the Spotlight index to quickly retrieve indexed files. Apple has decided to exclude certain selected system directories from the Spotlight index. By setting your privacy preferences, you could have excluded more.
Scherlokk has no such limitations in file search - it searches all subfolders and all files.

Is there a Windows version?
No. Scherlokk is build for Mac from scratch using native technologies and targeting the modern versions of macOS.

Why does Scherlokk list that many folders?
If you are looking for files only, make sure "Search for folder" option is turned off.
