 Disks Copernic Desktop Search - search for files on your PC almost instantly
CDS works pretty much as advertised, although I was unable to get it to search my email. When CDS first installs, it "indexes" all the files on your hard drives. This took over an hour on my system. CDS also wants to run at startup in the system tray. Great program overall.
Website - Freeware - works best with WinXP
Quote from the website - Easily search your entire hard drive in less than a second to pinpoint the right file, e-mail, music or pictures. CDS brings the power of a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use search engine right to your PC and allows you instantly to search files, e-mails, and email attachments stored anywhere on your PC hard drive. It executes sub-second searching of Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files, Acrobat PDFs, and all popular music, picture and video formats. CDS also searches your browser history, favorites, and contacts.
