Update May 2017

A May 2017 Microsft security update for Windows 10 conflicted with a major routine in FileBoss resulting in FileBoss not starting on some Windows 10 systems.

Versions V3.101 and later, fix the problem. You can read more about this at the page
Windows Creators Conflict.


Find a Recently Saved File
(without knowing its name)

At the end of a very long day the head of The Utility Factory hit the 'Save As' button for a new document he had created and then, only after exiting the program, realized he didn't have any idea where the document had been stored or even what its name was.

Using FileBoss he searched his hard drive for all files modified within the last five minutes quickly finding the file.

The Solution

Search for Files Based on When they were Modified

He performed a search (File > New File Set (Search)... from the main menu) covering both of his hard drives (C:\ and D:\) looking for all files that were modified in the past five minutes. This was easy to do using the Advanced section of the Search dialog to specify the earliest and latest file times to search for (times can be specified for when a file was accessed, modified or created). The search returned only five files and all but one were in the Windows System folder.
