DocFetcher v1.1.25

Andrew Lee on 30 May 2021
  • 82MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 25 May 2021
  • Suggested by vixay

DocFetcher indexes your computer, making the contents of a wide variety of files instantly searchable. Selecting a search result shows a preview of the file with text highlighted and without formatting. You can filter results by location, file type, minimum and/or maximum filesize and more. The program can index Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, PDF, RTF, EPUB, HTML and more formats from drives, external volumes, archive files and Outlook .PST files (some .OST files also work).

The program supports complex searches via wildcards, proximity, ranges, "fuzzy" terms, and more using Lucene search. You can also do standard file name search via "filename:searchterm." The program is cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux, as well as 64-bit Windows.

Note:

  • The program requires that you manually add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"
  • Some issues have appeared with the program on Windows 10. Users may wish to test the PortableApps beta version if you have issues.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or higher, see forum for use with Java Portable.
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Eclipse Public License
How to extract: Download the "portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch DocFetcher.exe.

If you see a memory error (very rare): either reduce the size/number of files indexed or do the following (64-bit Java only):
  1. Delete DocFetcher.exe from the main folder
  2. From the \misc folder, copy DocFetcher-8192_64-bit-Java.exe to the root folder and rename it to DocFetcher.exe

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

MoisheP on 2018-06-17 01:13

DocFetcher indexes many formats, such as LibreOffice documents, that Microsoft Search (aka Cortana) does not, or does incompletely. It also uses far less CPU time, once the initial indexing is completed, than MS. DocFetcher also runs on Linux. Results can be sorted by likelihood of match, as well as filename, type, date etc. Only downside is that it requires Java.

Be forewarned: PrecisionHelper can't create help files without "Microsoft Html Help Workshop" but instructions for its download and portable install are nowhere to be found.

Great viewer, really nice.

It's hard to use this and then go back to the standard Windows CHM viewer: the additional features are just too good.

I recently had a lot of trouble getting other tools to output to images and this saved me. Although I came close with using LibreOffice to export to HTML, Office Extractor caught an additional image that was embedded in the Word file header.

Doesn`t work half the time, keeps saying the epub file is corrupt. Yet, they open in Sumatra and just about any other epub viewer with no issues.

Specular on 2017-11-15 14:16

Anyone know security-wise if this is still worth using? It's now been more than two years without an update and I wonder what the risk to using it is, vs say Adobe Reader with its never-ending vulnerabilities.

webfork on 2017-11-19 18:17

@Specular: I think if you're asking a question like that, it's probably wise to use an updated viewer. There have been a few PDF vulnerabilities over the past year, but I think you have to enable various Adobe-only extras that I don't think STDU has in it's program.

I was able to successfully convert a DOCX file to MOBI file for an Amazon Kindle device. All I really needed was the index and basic formatting preserved and that's what it did. Also images worked well. I'm very happy.

RightToolsForJob on 2018-05-26 04:58

Links not longer work, well not for me.

Could be https://sourceforge.net/projects/portableapps/files/Source/TEBookConverter/
be the correct link, but it was lasted update in 2014

I searched and found also https://tebookconverter.codeplex.com/
But firefox had a warning "The site ahead may contain harmful programs"

is this program still available and safe
