Index Your Files v5.0.2.5

#77 Post by Rafael Castro » Thu Aug 26, 2010 5:31 am

26 August 2010 - v5.0.2.5
^ Improved Search Text ( Unicode Word Documents )

Notes:
1) When hidden the preview (with splitter) IYF not load files in the preview.
It is easier to work with the files found.
2) To adjust the columns automatically (name,size,date...) double click on the bottom panel of help.

Had a use for this today so I ran it through the steps.

Some usage notes:
  • Size – a database of a large hard drive (Around 3.5 TBs with 633 thousand files of movies, music, etc.) built a database of 100 megs. It appears to generate 3 files per database: DBP, DBT, and PRT. Scanning took roughly an hour.
  • Indexes do not include any kind of content so if you do a text search prepare to wait for it to read every file. DocFetcher does this much better. However, IYF and DocFetcher would compliment each other well as one focuses entirely on file names, the other almost entirely on content.
  • The database unfortunately doesn't organize itself into subfolders so you can't do a search for a given folder inside the database, only keywords. The alternative here is to generate multiple databases for multiple folders rather than just c:\ for example.
  • The preview tool works great but uses the built-in Windows Media Player so if you have an older version or don't have many installed codecs, it might not be able to preview anything.
  • Can only import or export to it's own format IYF.

Thanks for posting and welcome to the site!

While I am very interested in such a project and I think the portable community would have great interest in the results, I'm a little overloaded with my current projects. Please keep posting about your progress and, if things open up, I'd be happy to try and contribute in testing on both Mac and Windows systems.
