MobileFileSearch v1.47

A tool for Windows that allows you to search files inside a mobile device (Smartphone or Tablet) plugged to the USB port on your computer, with Media Transfer Protocol (MTP).

You can search files by their size, their created time, their modified time, or their name (using wildcard).
After finding the files on your Smartphone / Tablet, you can optionally delete them, copy them to a folder on your computer, or export the files list to csv/tab-delimited/html/xml/JSON file.

MobileFileSearch also allows you to activate the search from command-line and then export the result to a file, or copy the found files to the desired folder on your computer.

System Requirements
This tool works on any version of Windows, starting from Windows Vista and up to Windows 11. Both 32-bit and 64-bit systems are supported.

Be aware that this tool is useful if your Smartphone/Tablet uses the Media Transfer Protocol (MTP) to view and transfer files via USB. If you have an option to connect your Smartphone/Tablet as mass storage device (with drive letter), then this tool is not needed, and you can search files with any other search tool, like SearchMyFiles.

Version 1.47
Fixed bug: MobileFileSearch failed to load the From/To size values from the .cfg file.
Fixed typo in the 'File Extension' column.

Base Folders:If this field is empty, MobileFileSearch will search in all folders of your mobile device. You can also specify one or more folders (comma-delimited list), for example: Internal storage\Android,Internal storage\WhatsApp,SD card\Android
