    This is a really powerful search engine for your files. I use this to search network attached drives as well as my local disks. It is way more powerful than the standard windows 7 search facility. It can be prone to crashing when building large indexes such as enourmous network drives. The user interface is outdated, but hey, who cares? it does the job!

    Wonderful program. I'm using it to create portable document repos for our attorneys to take to trial. I've also used the portable version to create office wide indexes, and I've sent client versions (no rights to build, delete, update, etc) of the portable program to others in the office.

    A fantastic program, a shame it is not commercially supported. I would happily pay a lot for this, it is way better than the commercial packages I have tried. My job relies heavily on search in our own archives, and for this DocFetcher is fantastic. Would have loved it to be as good in picture search (doesn't bring up the images), but for free you can't have it all.

    Admirable utility. Stumbled a little coming out of the gate (needed to reinstall java), but appears to be exactly what I was hoping for.

    A good idea, but has some really irritating problems for a new user. I suppose that what comes of putting yourself on a pedestal of excellence. the UI could be a lot improved. its very easy to delete an index that contains thousands of indexed docs without being warned about it. And indexing run to crash and lose the regexes that you laboriously entered.
