their content is much longer than search by name, date change, type or size. To
avoid unnecessarily long quest try to determine as accurately as possible the
criteria limiting the number of viewed files. For example, to find Microsoft
Excel spreadsheets that contain a number or phrase, it makes sense to limit the
