Finding a file from inside Stata sounds a little perverse - it's a
statistics package.  But you can apply any computer language to other
purposes, as Austin Nichols demonstrated.  Personally, I would switch to
"My computer" or "Windows explorer" that have search facilities based on
drive/filename-wildcard/content.  For example, my profile.do appends all
my command usage to a daily log whose filename includes the date.  I can
subsequently search for all files containing a dataset name to find when
I worked on each project.

The subject line allows me to air a minor gripe, that the Window menu
allows opening a blank do file but doesn't offer "recently used" do
files.  It seems you have to open the do editor then use its file menu
to open an existing file.  Or type "doedit filename".
