Can you prove that statement? Does the search really *finds* files with the wrong mask and places them in "Find file" window?

I can make videofile if you wish.
The search searches all files. But returns results in files with correct mask.
But it really scans all files, which takes very long.
For example: I'm not an Admin on my computer, and if I search for *.sql with no substring, it's ok.
But when substring entered, FAR starts asking for permissions on files in system folders ans so on, which is also annoying.
Should I make a video?

No need in videofile. I understand what seems confusing to you: file names displayed in the dialog as the search is working. But that does NOT mean Far Manager opens and reads those files.

It however does check the _names_ of ALL files against the mask, because the Far-style masks are much more flexible and powerful than native Windows masks (you can specify multiple masks at once, you can specify masks to exclude from the search, you can specify mask as regular expression).

I just did a search by inexistent mask "*.a8b" with substring "a" to search on my C: drive (50 GB). The first search took 60 sec., the second search took 1 sec. Such speed would not be possible if Far was searching inside files.

We need to fix that, it confuses me too.

Which confuses me, Far starts asking for permissions to access *all* files.
Maybe it just ascs for access, but doesn't open and read them, but why it tries to access them?
And why doesn't try to access when searching without substring?

There's difference in attempt to access files when searching with or without substring. It's a fact.

Fixed progress display - build 3137.
Otherwise there is no other issue with incorrect file access and so on.
