If you are searching for a file by its name, extension, date, or
anything else but not its content, try Everything from
<http://www.voidtools.com/>.  It is fast.

If you are searching for a file by its contents, try Agent Ransack from
<https://www.mythicsoft.com/agentransack/>.  It is much slower than
Everything, but it has to examine the contents of every file within the
scope of its search.
