Hi AlexStoian,

These are the two UDF's that I have been using (These are modified copies of some UDFs I found long ago)

I modified these, but in no way take credit for their creation:

Filesearch1 (Fast, and with filters)

; _FileSearch( "Path and Mask", <$nOption>, <$cpusaver>, <$dirfilter>, <$filefilter>)
;
;----PARAMETERS-----
;$nOption -   <Optional (0 - normal, 1- recursive)>
;$cpusaver -  <Optional (0 - normal, 1 - CPU Friendly, but Slower)>
;$dirfilter - <Optional (0 - list directories, 1 - filter out directories)>
;$filefilter- <Optional (0 - list files, 1 - filter out files)>
;
;----RETURN-----
; Returns array. Either Array of files (full path) where...
; Array[0] is number of files.
; Array[0] = 0 if nothing found.
; EXAMPLE USAGE
;--------------------------------------------
;~ #include<array.au3>
;~ $a = _FileSearch("C:\*.*", 1, 0, 0, 0)
;~ _ArrayDisplay($a)
;--------------------------------------------
Func _FileSearch($szMask, $nOption = 0, $cpusaver = 0, $dirfilter = 0, $filefilter = 0)
    $szRoot = ""
    $hFile = 0
    $szBuffer = ""
    $szReturn = ""
    $szPathList = "*"
    Dim $aNULL[1]

    If Not StringInStr($szMask, "\") Then
        $szRoot = @ScriptDir & "\"
    Else
        While StringInStr($szMask, "\")
            $szRoot = $szRoot & StringLeft($szMask, StringInStr($szMask, "\"))
            $szMask = StringTrimLeft($szMask, StringInStr($szMask, "\"))
        WEnd
    EndIf
    If $nOption = 0 Then
        _FileSearchUtil($szRoot, $szMask, $szReturn, $cpusaver, $dirfilter, $filefilter)
    Else
        While 1
            $hFile = FileFindFirstFile($szRoot & "*.*")
            If $hFile >= 0 Then
                $szBuffer = FileFindNextFile($hFile)
                While Not @error
                    If $szBuffer <> "."  And $szBuffer <> ".."  And _
                            StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($szRoot & $szBuffer), "D") Then _

            _FileSearchUtil($szRoot, $szMask, $szReturn, $cpusaver, $dirfilter, $filefilter)
            If $szPathList == "*"  Then ExitLoop
            $szPathList = StringTrimLeft($szPathList, 1)
            $szRoot = StringLeft($szPathList, StringInStr($szPathList, "*") - 1) & "\"
            $szPathList = StringTrimLeft($szPathList, StringInStr($szPathList, "*") - 1)
        WEnd
    EndIf
    If $szReturn = "" Then
        $aNULL[0] = 0
        Return $aNULL
    Else
        Return StringSplit(StringTrimRight($szReturn, 1), "*")
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>_FileSearch

Func _FileSearchUtil(ByRef $ROOT, ByRef $MASK, ByRef $RETURN, $cpusaver, $dirfilter, $filefilter)
    $hFile = FileFindFirstFile($ROOT & $MASK)

            If $szBuffer <> "."  And $szBuffer <> ".."  Then
                If StringInStr(FileGetAttrib($ROOT & $szBuffer), "D") Then
                    If $dirfilter = 0 Then $RETURN = $RETURN & $ROOT & $szBuffer & "*"
