The Google desktop search catalized the interest to this problem, yielding a great number of reviews, analyses, comparisons of the leading search engines like Copernic desktop search, X1, dtsearch, blinkx, etc. – all them are quite comprehensively featured in the recent CNET review (http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-3684_7-5536376-1.html).
The review would be more complete if they’d mention another very decent in terms of usability, indexing and search speed and accuracy desktop search tool diskmeta.com.
What’s most important about diskmeta.com:
-indexes user-selected folders on local and intranet shared hard drives.
-supports PDFs, archives ZIP, RAR, local Microsoft Office files, CHM, HTML, TXT.
-allows full text search with wildcards, boolean operators, exact phrase search, sorting, filtering.
-easy file preview.
-in search speed and result presentation compares to Google in the best sense of the term.
-diskmeta is both freeware and shareware (.50 and .50 for professional version). But you can try a full-functional version free for 30 days, just to make the right choice.
-diskmeta doesn’t searches Internet. For Internet you have the unbeatable Google
The search technology utilized in diskMETA has a long and glorious history. It is used for a decade in the nationwide biggest and most popular web search engine www.meta.ua, in a series of search tools for web-sites and CD-rooms installed in most governmental and financial national institutions.
