Ever struggle to find a file at school or home that you know you saved? With all the various storage these days, network drives at school, NAS and other home storage, we literally possess huge amounts of storage. Of course, then, we would lose some of our files. You can use your OS embedded search, Windows or Mac, but that sometimes does not search across all your network drives, or you have to go to that specific drive to search. Enter LAN Desk. With this free app, you can put in your IP range, and it will search across your network for files.
So I began trying it–you can see my range in my home network. After this, if it works like advertised, I am going to try it at work on a 10 network. If it does work as advertised, then this is definitely a pretty good find. With all the horsepower behind computers these days, searching still sucks. Will be nice if this really does go across the network.
