Show Hidden Files has also two important search criteria. These are search by date and size. Of course, you can make an effective use of these search criteria if you possess relevant information, i.e. if you are aware of the files size and date. For example, you may look for files of particular size. Search by date implies looking for files which were created, accessed or modified during certain period of time.

Once you are done with the search you can copy all found files and archives to a folder to further work with them. It is also possible to create a list of found files.
