I recently moved from Windows NT4 to XP (missed out on 2000) and I find that the File Search facility from Explorer does not seem to work as I am used to.
I used to find the option to look for files containing a given string very useful on occaision. Now when I use the ‘A word or phrase in the file’ box it seems to use this as an additional filename test and does not perform the primitive ‘grep’ like search I want.
All I want to do is search through a bunch of folders for any file with the ‘.e’ extension and the term ‘business_id’ in the text. Is there some option I am too thick to notice?
