File search tool

I am using Windows Explorer to search a very big volume for files with a specific file extension.  I am looking for a tool which allows me to export the searched result file paths of the files.

Would someone please recommend a tool to use?

Many thanks.

Well, you can always save the search itself as explained on this page:

As for saving the search results, take a look at this page:

Or maybe this page will be of help as far as saving search results (it's written for Windows Vista, but applies to Windows 7 also):

First create a index from command line (only good practice if the files are not being copied/movied  changing frequently)

dir /s /b >C:\dirlist.txt

Open in new window


Then when  you want to serach for the file do as below.


findstr /i "Filename_or_Partoffilename" C:\dirlist.txt

Open in new window


It will return the full path of all the mathed files.. You can copy the output from the command console or may be you can add >output.txt at the end to redirect the output directly to a text file.

Making index in first step is will make the serach superfast.. You can always re create the index by running the first command
