Hi,

I'm looking for an old old prehistoric program (or any other one that does the same thing). It was called either go.exe or go.com.

What it did is make a database of directory names in it's own database of all directories on all drives of your computer. Then if you want to go to a certain directory but can't remember where it is you just type in the directory name (or part of it) and it shows you all directories with that name or starting with that search. you pick the one you want and it automatically goes to it no matter what drive it's on.

So if you type in NEW the results could be C:\NEWS or F:\NEWFILES or G:\NEW-DOWNLOADS and so forth. You click on the one you want and it takes you there.

since your using vista, the built in search can do the same thing. You may have to adjust the search settings and parameters to get it work right.
