desktop search tool Copernic Desktop Search allows you to instantly find files, emails, images, multimedia and more, that are located on your PC (not the Internet). The program creates an initial index of your hard drive and provides an easy to use search interface that returns results instantly, as soon as you type in your keyword. The results are categorized by file type and include image thumbnails for picture matches as well as highlighted keywords in the document preview. Copernic Desktop Search can also (optionally) index your web surfing history, as well as Contacts and Favorites. The free Lite version has an index limit of 75,000 files and may display advertisements. Copyright

FYI: This program displays advertisements inside the interface.

Not as good as free v2 4 stars by les2008 Sep 15, 2008 (Read all my 2 reviews)
I was using v2 and "upgraded" to new "Home" version (v3). The new version seems to be a downgrade (i.e. removed features) on V2 so I uninstalled it and reloaded V2. The new "home" version should provide at least the same functionality and more whilst remaining free. Main features missing: Customisable preview pane, search as you type, ability to save searches. CDS v2 is, in my opinion, the best free desktop search tool, the new Home version (v3) isn't !!! show Review details
Excellent program 5 stars by JURYCOM Jul 10, 2008 (Read all my 33 reviews)
Just what was needed with more bells and whistles than I would expect for a free program. This lets you monitor your hard drive to ensure that you have what you think you have and nothing more. When space gets tight on your old HD, all of the extra stuff you don't need is easy to find with this. show Review details
The ultimate windows search killer 5 stars by BENDECHO Apr 29, 2008 (Read all my 5 reviews)
This proggie is damn near perfect. Copernic only indexes (locates and lists files for future reference) when your system is idle. Its finding capacity of files (after indexing) is very, very good. Just make sure you dont expect it to find a file you've just created or saved from the net etc.. you will need to re-index to get that done. Besides on the fly indexing (resource heavy anyway) this program is what I have been waiting for in order to find files hidden away in a multitude of directories. The taskbar toolbar is perhaps not to everyone's liking (normally enough clutter there), but it actually works well. Comes up with results immediately and gives you the option to open it all up to have a better look. Perfect. Even if you dont intend on keeping it, you should really try it for a couple of weeks to get the feel of its file finding capacity. It does what its supposed to do and it does it fast. 9/10 from me ! show Review details
