Q. Hey, I'm confused! From the feature list it looks like FileLocator Lite and Agent Ransack are the same product, is that right?


A. Yep, apart from the name they're both 'lite' versions of FileLocator Pro. Honestly, it's the same code. During the build process an automated script runs that locates all the Agent Ransack branding and replaces it with FileLocator Lite branding and then recompiles.


The name FileLocator Lite simply reinforces the link to FileLocator Pro and is more acceptable for some customers who feel uncomfortable installing a product called "Agent Ransack" at work.
