All of my code snippets, tips and tricks, history etc are in about 4,500 TXT files (15 years of collecting)
As you know WinXP contents could be searched, but MS dumped contents find with Windows 7.
Windows 7 "Indexing" slowed my laptop to snails pace too.
I use a commercial third party app FileSearchEX by Goff Concepts.
- finds files and/or contents
- UI is very similar to WinXP Find dlalog
- install adds a shortcut to WinExp context menu
- can have multiple searches open at same time
- was/is worth every cent of the private use fee $15 per household
