Docfetcher: Google like search to the contents of document on your computer

20 May 20102 Comments

DocFetcher is free desktop search application. DocFetcher works like Google to search the contents of document on your computer. DocFetcher uses the concept of indexing on which searching is performed. This application is developed for Windows and Linux.

Let’s see how it works

DocFetcher performs search using index files. The indexing process take few minutes (200 document = about 1 minute). It is good idea to create permanent indexes for huge document repositories which infrequently change or temporary ones for quick search in folders.

Create an Index: – Right click on the “Search Scope” and select create index then select folder to be indexed or drag folder on “Search Scope” and click “Run” for index management.

Search and View the results: – Enter the search term in search box and “Hit” enter. The search result will be appearing in the result panel. Click on desire search result to get the contents in Preview Panel (for Text and HTML documents). Double click open document in separate windows. Like this we can access all search result pages with one click.

Optimized Search Results: – we can optimized search result by defining the file size and check or uncheck the file extension in “Filetypes

Index Updates: – Indexes updated automatically as some documents or folders are added, removed or modified to get better search result.

Docfetcher’s some features like customizable text file extensions, Detection of Html pairs, Indexing multiple folders at once etc. makes it more efficient.

I will suggest to use Docfetcher with folders, not with drives to get better results.
