Editors' Review


Archivarius 3000 is a simple program that allows users to search their computers, removable drives, and networks for documents. Although it works just fine, many users will likely find that it's not a major improvement over the search functionality that is built into Windows.

The program starts by creating an index of all the documents stored in the selected location. This takes a few minutes but isn't terribly time-consuming; our My Documents was indexed in about four minutes. There are many customization options for indexes; users can specify languages, document types, encodings, and much more. Once the index has been created, users can then search for documents using Archivarius 3000. The query builder lets users design searches that include any words, all words, exact phrases, words to exclude, and partial words. The results interface is split into two panes, with the left showing a preview of the search results and the right showing the full text of the currently selected document. Searching with Archivarius 3000 was quick, and we liked the way it handled search results. The program's built-in Help file could have been a little more detailed, but it was adequate. Overall, we liked Archivarius 3000; although much of what it does can be done from within Windows without additional software, it offers enough extra functionality to be useful with more challenging searches.

Archivarius 3000 has a 30-day trial period. It installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

"Almost a great program."

An awesome variety of features, a real power tool of a search program. Never seen anything like it.


A bit of a learning curve for the advanced features.
Can't make all the best features work. You can specify a file extension and it has an very extensive list. But...the list is in no particular order and good luck finding the one you want. I tried .pdf. The program pulled up lots of files that were NOT .pdf s. Am I doing something wrong? Can't tell.
DUI is a mixed bag, but still better than average.


I actually paid for this thing and I hope they work the bugs out...assuming they are bugs and not my inexperience.
In any case, it's been very useful in sorting out the 50 Gbytes I accumulated over the years (long story).

"Indexed content search in .EPUB, .MOBI, .CHM"

Supports many text formats


No cons so far.


This is the only program I've managed to found that builds indexes and allows to search for text strings inside the word, for instance searching for "*phleb*" will find files containing the words: thrombophlebitis, postphlebitic, phlebitis etc.

Other indexing software such as Copernic desktop search, Google desktop, X1 search, Windows search only search from the beginning of word and won't search inside the middle of words.

Archivarius 3000 also searches the content in .CHM, .EPUB, .MOBI formats.

Of course Archivarius supports content searching in Microsoft Office formats and .PDF

Archivarius 3000 is really useful for searching inside documents and eBooks.

I highly recommend to try it.
