I need to find some text in a ton of log files that are stored on my network (I don't have them indexed).
The files all have a more or less unique extension. (i.e., they look like this: MyLogFile.txt_100901181706 the numbers are a date/time stamp.)
I have Windows 7 or else this would be easy. XP supported searching in files much easier that windows 7 does. I tried to do it in Windows 7 and it had to be setup on each extension one-by-one for all of the extensions. Because I have a non-standard extension, it would not help me anyway.
I need a tool that can do a recursive search for text within files starting in a given directory. I would like it to have some kind of GUI if possible (I am not big into command line tools.)
Thanks for any help
