ProFind provides fast and complete searches of any disk, beneath an elegant and extremely powerful interface.
Most file search apps search either the macOS's metadata database or the disk directly.
This means they can often provide search results that are incomplete, or contain unwanted items or they perform unnecessarily slowly. Not with ProFind, which searches using metadata and the disk.
With support for innovative natural language queries, application launching, spatial disk browsing, hash generation, Finder integration, search saving, history, scripting and more, it's the only search app you'll ever need.
