Find Any File Function introduction:
“Find any file” searches for files in the local disk by name, creation or modification date, size, type, and creator code (not by content).
Because other tools have similar search operations, the following are special functions for finding any file:
With a new hierarchical view of found items, making it easier to browse 100 items (see screenshot).
You can run as root user to find any files on the disk, even files hidden by ordinary users.
You can save queries and run them again later.
Unlike Spotlight (the Find command of Finder), it does not access the pre-built database, but directly searches for the selected volume. This allows you to find any file, even including packages and other files excluded from Spotlight searches. Therefore, it is very suitable for finding system files.
On the other hand, it may need to be slightly longer than Spotlight, and it is only fast on HFS(+) volumes. But even on the installed network volume of the Mac OS X server, it can still be very fast.
So this is not a complete replacement for Spotlight, but it can come in handy in some cases (if not many).
