RipGrep is in my opinion faster than any other grepping tool out there.

Download Links:
RipGrep: https://github.com/BurntSushi/ripgrep/releases (Scroll to downloads)
WinRaR: http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm
Goto the site provided above and download ripgrep for windows 7, download the gnu version ("ripgrep-0.4.0-i686-pc-windows-gnu.zip") you should be given a .RAR extract that, you will get an executable named "RG" I repeat DO NOT open this file just drag and drop it into your database file like you did with sift.

Now you need to cd to your database for example if your database is in a folder or on your desktop named databases then you type the following:
"cd desktop" then "cd databases"

Once done to search for your victim you do rg -i -w "string"
-w = Only Matching
-i = case insensitive
rg -i  -w "string" Files(optional)

If you want to use a .bat to open your command prompt into your database folder then just type the following then save it as a .bat inside your database folder:
@echo off
cmd /k cd "C:\your\file\path"

I currently use cygwin which is a linux based command line. In my opinions it a lot easier to use, as you can change the width. Which is very good for long database entries.

Thanks for reading this tutorial if I have missed anything out let me know.

What tool you use doesn't matter it's your read speed of your storage device.

The tool you use does matter.  How they parse strings is done in different ways and some are much faster than others.

On Linux I use AG/Silver searcher which is much faster than grep.  There is a windows port of that here: Silver Searcher windows

Yeah I know bro I have never been a fan of Silver Searcher though. I currently use cygwin terminal.
