How to perform a targeted search of a thumb drive or usb drive for all office files containing a particular word

If i were to have a thumb drive containing emails ( easy enough) but if there were say 1000 word documents and excel spreadsheets and say 150 of them may contain a certain word .. How would I find them quickly without opening 1000 documents .. ?

What do you mean by quickly? You mean results show as you type, then you need some kind of indexing going on. e.g. Windows Search, X1 Search, DT Search, Lookeen, Copernic Desktop Search...

For results after you press Enter, products like...
Windows Search, FileSeek, Agent Ransack...

Its a search and move operation so .. I type a word .. get a list .. select and move

Just to be clear .. I need to find the word INSIDE the document ... Just not a document whose NAME is the word ..
