  • 51MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Jan 2017
  • 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.

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you 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"

Category:
System Requirements: 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 users only):

  1. In a text editor, edit misc\DocFetcher.bat so that the last line reads -Xmx4096m
  2. Move this file to the main folder
  3. Save and launch DocFetcher.bat, ignoring DocFetcher.exe from now on

What's new? Features:
  • Polish GUI translation.
  • DocFetcher now ships with Windows launchers with up to 8 GB of memory. Note that more than 1 GB requires a 64-bit Java runtime.
  • Advanced settings:
    • Option for disabling the text preview. This is useful for searching the contents of very large text files;
    • New entry AllowIndexRenaming for hiding the “Rename Index” context menu entry in the Search Scope pane.
Changes:
  • The comments in the DocFetcher.bat file were printed in the command prompt.
Bugfixes:
  • Crashes:
    • During startup saying “invalid sash weights”;
    • On certain CHM files;
    • On RTF files containing images;
    • IndexOutOfBoundsException;
    • NullPointerException during indexing;
    • When trying to rename a folder beneath an index (i.e. a top-level folder). Now the renaming operation is only enabled for indexes;
    • Under certain circumstances when clicking on the buttons in the toolbar above the preview pane.
  • Fixed Outlook PST indexing issues.
  • Directory paths as long as or longer than 260 characters were incorrectly identified as NTFS junctions, causing some directories to be ignored during indexing.

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.

Youtube user put together a great series of tutorials on xmind: http://www.youtube.com/user/frankshakaxmind#p/u

This program is critically important when you have a mass of vaguely connected topics. Seeing them all grouped nicely into a structure does a very useful magic trick, simplifying and clarifying how you think about almost any topic.
