    Hidden file finder

    I used to have a very handy file finder program, freeware, that found ALL the files and folders on a drive, not just the ones that you can find with "Show hidden and system files." Lost it when the computer crashed and can't remember the name. Any suggestions?

    There are 5 suggestions in the first link and the second is for UltraSearch, but no doubt that since the crash you will now be making regular system images....

    Thank you both for your responses, I'll take a look at them. As for "making regular images", did that just before leaving for Europe, even had the image on an external USB drive with me. Unfortunately my beloved laptop drowned, in Martini, first drink of the night and I hadn't even taken a sip! I did all the "right" things, opened it up, ran cold water through it, dried it out. Strangely after I put it back together it booted normally. However, 20 minutes later the keys started producing random letters, like an Enigma machine from WW2, then it died. I have the drive, it survived, but the last e-mails were not included in the image. I know from previous experience that Eudora .mbx and .toc files will not show up in Explorer even with "Show hidden" selected.

    Anyway thanks again for the suggestions.
