QNAP Systems, Inc. released Qsirch, an exclusive and powerful full-text search tool that simplifies and quickens searching for files on a QNAP NAS. Users can quickly search through their entire file collection for specific items, including using keywords within content, to improve their productivity both at home and in the workplace.
“Every QNAP NAS can store an incredible number of files and data, but this can leave some users struggling to find specific files and important data,” said Alex Chang, product manager of QNAP. “Qsirch is a great search tool that can help users quickly find the files they need. The searching efficiency is several times faster than normal methods, making the QNAP NAS a truly flexible, dynamic file center for conveniently storing and using files.”
Qsirch has a near real-time search engine and features search-while-typing to dramatically increase search speed. Users can also choose categories including images, videos, music, documents and PDF to narrow down search results. Qsirch supports file search by content, filename, metadata, date modified, and displays the search results with thumbnails, content abstract and hint keywords for users to preview necessary information before opening the file. Moreover, Qsirch will retain search results for automatically learning user queries to speed up future searches and even supports searching through these histories.
Qsirch performs alongside QTS permission settings, only showing files authorized for each user. Administrators can also flexibly exclude shared folders from Qsirch search whenever needed to ensure data security, or exclude backup folders to focus the searching power on new files instead of redundant files.
