  • Search feature with content searching

    Hi All,

    In 2008 R2, is some one know how to search any file with the contents in file.

    I know there is filtring for file type, data etc but if I want to search for example a word document and I can only remember the content with in this file is there any option or filter which is content based?

    does that make sense? could some one please help me here.

    Thanks
    Sam

    You could use PowerShell...

    get-childitem c:\data\* -recurse | select-string -pattern "cluster"

    Would search all files in c:\data for the string pattern of "cluster". Not sure all the file types this would work with, but I tried it with .txt, .rtf, and Word docs and it worked.
