Archive Searcher 2.1



Archive Searcher is a fast archive-file searcher for Windows. It allows you to search for a file or a folder archived in ZIP, RAR, ACE, and CAB archives with ease, which is very useful if you have a lot of documents archived in WinZip, WinRar, and WinAce files and need to be able to search for specific documents. It's also useful when you're looking for a DLL from a set of CAB installation files. Just enter the names of documents that are archived in ZIP files and click the Search button, and you'll find them in seconds. It's suited to professionals and novices alike.


Archive Searcher is a software application that permits you to search for files within multiple archives at the same time. It offers support for ZIP, RAR, ACE and CAB compressed files.

The tool features intuitive options that can be figured out by all types of users. Although it hasn't been updated for a long time, it works well with newer OS editions.

It's wrapped in a simple interface that invites you to specify the target archive format, starting directory which contains archives with the specified extension, type of item to look for (file or folder), along with the name and/or extension. Subdirectories are automatically verified, but they can be excluded.

Worth mentioning is that, while Archive Searcher is capable of identifying only file names which match the given format, it can also search for all files with the specified name or format. However, it's necessary to define wildcards. Unfortunately, partial file name matches are not accepted.

Results shows the name, location, date of last modification, size, and path in archive for each file or folder.

It's possible to open the containing archive of any selected item, clear all results to restart the task, resize all columns automatically, sort the items by any column, show grid lines, as well as hide the toolbar or status bar.

The software utility works smoothly, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or prompt error messages. As expected, it left a small footprint on system performance, running on low CPU and RAM. File search tasks were carried out pretty fast.

On the other hand, the program hasn't been updated for a long time and it doesn't have a richer set of options.

Otherwise, Archive Searcher serves its purposes, offering a straightforward solution for locating files with various formats within multiple compressed files.
