Excellent product, fast, simple to use and handling a terabyte of data with ease. This is the best full text search engine I've used!
At my work I have tons of txt and xml files which I have to search for something constantly. This tool is my savior.
Excellent tool for indexing documents (including text within pdf, chm files). The portable version is an added benefit for indexing documents on portable devices.
Indexes folders for very fast future text content searches. Previews text and full html with search term highlighting. If you have a number of documents / letters etc to look through, this is the best cross-platform option for retrieving them.
It's very useful tool!
