FFA file extension - Find Fast Indexer status file

What is ffa file? How to open ffa files?

File type specification:

ffa file icon: ffa filetype icon

The FFA file extension is associated with Microsoft Office's Find Fast Indexer. The Find Fast Indexer is a utility that builds indexes to speed finding documents from the Open dialog box in Microsoft Office programs and from Microsoft Outlook. When you install Microsoft Office, a shortcut to Find Fast is placed in your startup program group.

The *.ffa files are used for status files.

You can open the Find Fast Control Panel icon to create additional indexes (for example, on a network drive), delete indexes, and set other options. Although you can use Find Fast in the Control Panel, Find Fast indexes Office documents automatically and requires no user interaction.

By default, Find Fast creates a single index on each hard disk on your computer. Note that Find Fast does not automatically index files on removable disk media. However, you may create multiple indexes on a single drive, especially on shared or network drives. You can do this but you cannot create indexes that overlap. For example, if a Find Fast index exists on drive C, you cannot create an additional index for files in the My Documents folder on drive C. To create an index of My Documents, first delete the index for drive C through the Find Fast Control Panel icon.

Example: Ffastun.ffa
