    "Stunning freeware"

    November 8, 2013  |   By howardferns

    Version: DocFetcher 1.1.8

    Pros

    With a number of similar programs to choose from this was the very first one I tried, after I read that it only indexes folders you select and not the entire computer.
    I am not looking any further!!! The search is blisteringly fast. Not only words from docs and pdfs, it even finds text that is in clips and screen captures on my portable notekeeper in Dropbox, and it will bring up names in jpeg photos too, if you index them. Double-click on a result and the doc, pdf, jpeg or whatever will open.

    Cons

    Folders of docs and pdfs were no trouble but trying to index too many jpegs at once crashed it, so I had to load them folder by folder. This process is a bit tedious when you have a number to do, and it could do with a hotkey. Once you're done, though, updating changes is much simpler.

    Summary

    I have a great number of files on my computer relating to an interest of mine. Finding data was becoming increasingly difficult, with inconsistent results from both Windows Search and FileFinder Lite, while my own homebuilt index was getting too complex and time-consuming to maintain. DocFetcher has relieved me of any more worries.

    Updated on Nov 8, 2013

    It was incorrect of me to say that DocFetcher was finding text from files in my notekeeper. The file types are not supported and what was being found was from duplicates elsehere in my system.
    I should have added to my review that the software is very slow to download, and after you've waited some minutes it hangs just before it is finished. This happened to me with installation on two computers. Persevere and you'll get it in the end, if really stuck search for different downloads or mirrors.
