Explorer Replacement With Super Fast File-Finding & Good Privacy Reputation

Last Modified: 2020-07-15
What is a good file search app alternative to Windows Explorer?  It's just too slow and non-intuitive for me.  

I've seen NUMEROUS lightning fast programs over the years.  It's been a while since I've looked into it.  But, the ones I recall were kind of mind blowing.  Like near instantaneous results.

But, here's my only caveat, please.  Need something that is focused on privacy.  Does anyone know of a Windows Search / Indexing app that is built from-the-ground-up for privacy?  

I guess the main thing I can think of is...sending one's indexed drive back to the developer?  So, at least an app that runs pretty much ON your local machine alone and has a good reputation / years & years of great reviews & well-known developer.

And, of course!  Lightning fast search results. :D!
