Swift search is very good, even better than ultrasearch but unfortunately its for NTFS and thus for windows....But is there any similar program for ext4???

WizTree uses the MFT as well. It's a directory analyzer though. It's very quick

The MFT is all fine, but how about content search? Also, I can not figure out the dismal experiences of people using Windows BuiltIn search, works excellently and near-instantaneously for me. I do not remember half the locations of stuff I access daily anymore.

My question is why is it a security issue? Just because you can FIND a file doesn't mean you can open it. Why would you need Admin rights just to see the contents of the drive?
