"InEverything - Search inside files using the Everything NTFS search engine.

I use Everything to search for files, but it doesn't search inside files, so I've thrown together a solution. Beta.

To run the script, you need to download Everything and ES from http://www.voidtools.com/download.php. Install Everything, turn on Tools - Options - ETP/FTP and check Start ETP/FTP server on startup. Plase ES.exe next to the script."

Update: whatever was causing this issue has cleared up in 1.1.13. Note: I backed up to version 1.1.11 as there were issues creating multiple indexes on 1.1.12 in my Win7x64 environment.

---

DocFetcher 1.1.12 is out. I use this program quite a bit and v.1.1.11 was fairly bug free so I haven't seen a clear indicator that the new version fixes something in particular but always good to see an open, active project surrounding freeware I love.

Changelog: http://www.softpedia.com/get/PORTABLE-S ... cher.shtml

Been working with program over the last two years now and feel like I should give it a separate post for this.

Wishlist:

  • Search entirely by file dates (thinking of another box next to the size box)

  • Ability to search by various types of metadata

  • DjVu capability - according to this it doesn't look very posible: http://sourceforge.net/p/docfetcher/fea ... quests/35/).

  • Ability to set processor usage. While the program is running javaw.exe *32 process is almost always running as much as 13% processor usage for indexing. Would like to be able to keep that to a minimum.

  • In the "Document Types" window along with check, uncheck, and invert, I'd like to see "Microsoft, OpenOffice, and 'other'"

I'm pleased to report that PA is working on a DocFetcher version. I'm obviously a fan of the program so more attention is always good but this is huge for people who need a solid search program but have network requirements against Java installations, which I ran into recently.

Usage note: this program lists support for "PST" but two separate installations of Office 2010 I tested didn't have a PST file to check. I went digging and fortunately you can use an "OST" file located here:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\EMAIL@ADDRESS.ost

DocFetcher didn't seem to know the difference and indexed it as normal.

This article gives some insight on finding the file: https://askleo.com/where_is_my_outlook_ ... e_located/

So I recently ran into a situation where I had to search many thousands of very large, detailed documents and realized that DocFetcher had some memory limitations past a certain set of documents. I tested out X1 (https://www.x1.com/), which has some amazing features but I still find myself really preferring DocFetcher

DocFetcher:
* Generally more responsive
* Always finds the text you're searching for in the document preview window
* Generally simpler (setup can sometimes be tedious but past that it's very easy)

X1:
* MUCH more detailed preview window (DF is just text)
* Searches more file types
* Ability to search a much larger database of documents
* Searches Outlook a bit better, searches Outlook attachments
