    This is a great product when used on desktop mode I have figured it out to work every time, but still having issues trying to get network index files working using portable version. Generally a terrific tool.

    This looked like exactly what I needed to index a backlog of emails. Unfortunately, after install on a Mac PowerBook Pro with Sierra, the application would not launch. No indication of what the problem was. So my search goes on for a simple indexing tool. Maybe I'll have to roll my own...

    I'm speechless! I've spent hours and hours looking for an alternative solution to Windows Search to search my archived outlook emails. (Windows Search has **** the bed, and it's been a nightmare). I have downloaded and tried all the programs I could find out there. X1, Lookeen, ...I don't even want to list them all, as I'm already getting a headache thinking about them. FINALLY! Source Forge NAILS IT! AGAIN! sorry for the caps. I don't usually digress to that, but I'm so happy to have found DocFetcher! It speaks to what Source Forge is all about to me, Open, Free, Top Shelf Programming, Visionary, Small Foot print, Ultra Fast, need I go on? Seriously though, This little tiny program with the Sandy logo, just kicked all the High Cost, Over Built, Over Produced, Complicated programs in the Keister! That is why I'm speechless. Thankfully, my fingers are not. GOOD SHOW! WELL DONE! You know, I've been utilizing Source Forge's fruits for years. They deserve a lot of credit, seriously folks. Thank You!

    This is a lovely application, designed exactly the way I wanted for a local-disk alternative to Evernote: instead of trusting all of your personal and business data in a cloud (now owned by Google/NSA), you can search your own files right where they are! Sadly, the app was written in Java, which is great for cross-platform use, but horrible if you have anything more than a mundane collection of files. At least in Linux, where I roam, anything more than 10K files (even when indexed as separate folders) Java maxes out memory and CPU and soon locks up the app. After spending a day trying to tweak this from the developer suggestions, my up-to-date Java simply would not behave. At some point it's simply more trouble than it's worth. I hope one day this otherwise-awesome application will be ported to C# (or equiv.) for real users with real-sized data needs.
