First, I have to say thank you for such great program. I had installed Comodo's backup utility and had problems, so I un-installed it to later find out that this program created folders in every folder/subfolder in my drive and copied an image of all the files in the directory above it. Needless to say thousands of folders and files (Filekeeper found 13,041 folders alone without counting the files within). I have Win 7 and tried searching with it for any files/folder with .cbsync, but it kept freezing. It couldn't handle the large amount of data I guess, and it wouldn't select the folders, only the files in it (I probably don't know how to search for folder names in Win 7). I was getting frustrated until I remembered that I had installed your Fileseeker. Hold and behold, though it took a long while to search for all the files/folders, it did it without a hitch and I was able to delete them all afterwards. Saved me countless hours of headaches.

I do have a request based on this experience. First, could the standard Ctl-A to select all in the window be added to the program. And, could it have an option to have a list of possible actions to perform with the search results. For example in my situation, it would have been helpful to select an option before it starts searching to delete any file/folder it finds, or to move it to another directory, or print a list, etc. This way I could perform the full action of search and delete w/o waiting for the search to complete to then select to delete.

Either way, it is a great program. And again I thank you very much.

I have added your CTRL + A suggestion to the next version, but I don't know if I like the idea of auto-deleting or auto-moving files that are found. I think this leaves a bit too much room for error/disaster. :)
