    Feature Request: Find All

    I suggest adding a "Find ALL" option to highlight and give a count of the number of times a string is found. My workaround for this is to do a Replace All using the same string for find and replace...

    I use only the "view details" list, no file previews. But even if I did, that might explain slow load time in Windows Explorer, not BC3/BC4. I found some information that suggests the problem is...

    I forgot to mention, that I can turn off "compare contents" and file size, comparing only on timestamp which finishes extremely fast. Nevertheless, I didn't have to do this in BC2.
