Desktop search





samh
There are a number of desktop search tools available now. All free!
These index your hard drive and make finding files much faster and reliable.

-Copernic Desktop Search is my favourite
http://www.copernic.com/

- Google Desktop 2 beta: I'm sorry Google but you can't be the best always.
http://desktop.google.com/

- Yahoo Desktop Search (beta) recomended by PC Magazine also indexes your Instant Messages.
http://desktop.yahoo.com/

- MSN Search Toolbar with Windows Desktop Search: I don't understand why microsoft is always so totaliter. Why they should make you download the whole toolbar when you only need a desktop search.
http://toolbar.msn.com/

These softwares are especially usefull if you have lots of files on your computer. You don't need to spend hours and hours to organize them in folders anymore. Just search the name or something related to the file and it will show up.

Looking forward to your feedback

All of the above are perfectly valid.. But I find google's non intrusiveness and minimal RAM consumption makes it come out top, not to mention that when you use google toolbar to search your getting the best results.. Duh!! Its google!!
