Version 2021 Beta release available

I’m pleased to announce that the beta version for the next major release of FileLocator Pro and Agent Ransack is now available to download. This version has been a long time in the making and includes some really nice improvements, and will be a free upgrade for any recent purchases.


  • OCR text for scanned documents and images
  • Major improvements to indexing and index management
  • User interface updates, including a dark theme
  • Many more minor improvements

Please note that this is a beta version of the product and will contain bugs, although hopefully not too many. The help file has not yet been updated so if you have questions about specific features please ask Support.

Over the next few weeks more beta versions will be released along with improved documentation on the new features so please check back here for updates.
