Yes, it's extremely good. I started using it because the "search" in Vista was so atrocious and I could never find anything. I now use it with Windows 7 too and I'm sure I got the link from someone in these forums originally.

Ahh ! Bit of a drawback if you don't know name of file.

Does Everything search file contents?

No, "Everything" does not search file contents, only file and folder names.

"Everything"is a brilliant replacement for the standard Windows search function.

It is not the same as,or an alternative to, a full blown desktop search engine,like Copernic,which creates and constantly updates a database of everything on your system and is therefore capable of searching file contents.
