Extract Data From an .fnd file

Hi, I need to extract data from a .fnd file.

the .fnd file was created using the file search on windows explorer.

It was made by searching for the files that where modified at a particular date.  These files have then been modififed again some not so i cannot duplicate the search.

I need to extract the data from the .fnd file into a text file
file name
Path
last modified data

If you feel this question is in the wrong area please direct me to the area that would be more apporiate.

Thank you

Steve

I'm afraid you're out of luck, sorry. The .fnd files contain only information about the query options, not the query results.

Open your *.fnd file in Notepad; it will probably have less than 200 bytes, and it will contain the start drive and directory, the search pattern, and some binary data.
If the search directory is on a network drive, and you transfer this fnd file to a stand-alone machine where the drive isn't mapped, the search directory will default to the local drive; if you click the search button, it will search the local drive (using the other settings defined in the fnd file), not the network drive; that may be why you're getting results.
