Do you still search for files in your computer using only file names? The end result is always the same – a bunch of files with similar or the same name, and you have to open each one to find the right one. Step up your game with today’s discount software promotion, DeskRule!

DeskRule lets you search and filter files using over 300 file properties, making finding the right item exceptionally easy. With DeskRule, you’ll be able to leverage the flexibility of file attributes to quickly find files by Artist, Author, Tags, Keywords, GPS location, and more!

Search using DeskRule isn’t limited to just your computer. In fact, you can use DeskRule to search mobile phones, cameras, ZIP archives, and virtual folders. You can even use wildcards and regular expressions, combined with Boolean search, to perform amazingly complex searches that deliver results!

Until recently, using DeskRule, you could only find files in the conventional way, say find documents modified in the last month or pictures with 4 stars rating and above. But what if you wanted to check file properties against each other? E.g. find files whose Modification date is older than their Creation date? Now you can do just that with the unique desktop detective search mode.
No doubt this is an impressive search capability, but whom is it for? Unless you are working as a forensic investigator for the FBI, why would anyone need such functionality? Arguably this kind of power isn't for everyday searches, but it could prove useful in many situations that you need to combine file attributes and check their relationship. Here are a few examples off the top of my head:

  • Find photos that were edited since shot:
  • $System.DateModified > $System.Photo.DateTaken + 1
  • Find photos shot at non-standard aspect ratio:
  • $System.Image.VerticalSize / $System.Image.HorizontalSize != 4/3
  • Find files with substantial hidden parallel streams (fishy?)
  • $System.Size + 5KB < $Stock.TotalFileSize"

Please note folks: you can now search your photos using a map, please click here to read more about this.
Trying to decide which version of DeskRule (Lite, Standard) is right for you? Check out the feature comparison matrix and make an informed decision!
Version 2.01 brings new features for "offline" search as explained here: Offline catalog: Find files in disconnected external storage media
The new version 2.4 brings these two important features:

  • REFINE SEARCH: a new toolbar button next to START SEARCH lets you refine previous search results. It is like a local search, where instead of searching your hard disk, it just considers the previous search results available in the window, applying a new search filter on them. Old search results that don't match the new filter are removed.
  • BIGGER DIALOGS: easier to read and work with dialog boxes, for high DPI monitors.

This promotion includes the following:
DeskRule Lite v2.42 ($9.97)
DeskRule Standard v2.42 ($19.97)
