Does any one here use DocFetcher ?


Developer(s): DocFetcher project
Stable release: 1.1.11 / March 3, 2014
Written in: Java
Operating system: MS Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
License: Eclipse Public License
Portable Document Repositories

One of DocFetcher's outstanding features is that it is available as a portable version which allows you to create a portable document repository — a fully indexed and fully searchable repository of all your important documents that you can freely move around.
click thumb for 821x616 pixels:


Index updates: Of course, an index only reflects the state of the indexed files when it was created, not necessarily the latest state of the files. Thus, if the index isn't kept up-to-date, you could get outdated search results, much in the same way a telephone book can become out of date. However, this shouldn't be much of a problem if we can assume that most of the files are rarely modified.

Additionally, DocFetcher is capable of automatically updating its indexes:
(1) When it's running, it detects changed files and updates its indexes accordingly.
(2) When it isn't running, a small daemon in the background will detect changes and keep a list of indexes to be updated; DocFetcher will then update those indexes the next time it is started.
And don't you worry about the daemon: It has really low CPU usage and memory footprint, since it does nothing except noting which folders have changed, and leaves the more expensive index updates to DocFetcher.
Java: Performance and portability: One aspect some people might take issue with is that DocFetcher was written in Java, which has a reputation of being "slow". This was indeed true ten years ago, but since then Java's performance has seen much improvement, according to Wikipedia.

Anyways, the great thing about being written in Java is that the very same portable DocFetcher package can be run on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X — many other programs require using separate bundles for each platform. As a result, you can, for example, put your portable document repository on a USB drive and then access it from any of these operating systems, provided that a Java runtime is installed.
Supported Document Formats
##Microsoft Office (doc, xls, ppt) ##Microsoft Office 2007 and newer (docx, xlsx, pptx, docm, xlsm, pptm) ##Microsoft Outlook (pst) ##OpenOffice.org (odt, ods, odg, odp, ott, ots, otg, otp) ##Portable Document Format (pdf) ##EPUB (epub) ##HTML (html, xhtml, ...) ##TXT and other plain text formats (customizable) ##Rich Text Format (rtf) ##AbiWord (abw, abw.gz, zabw) ##Microsoft Compiled HTML Help (chm) ##MP3 Metadata (mp3) ##FLAC Metadata (flac) ##JPEG Exif Metadata (jpg, jpeg) ##Microsoft Visio (vsd) ##Scalable Vector Graphics (svg)

##Regex-based exclusion of files from indexing: You can use regular expressions to exclude certain files from indexing. For example, to exclude Microsoft Excel files, you can use a regular expression like this: .*\.xls

##Mime-type detection: You can use regular expressions to turn on "mime-type detection" for certain files, meaning that DocFetcher will try to detect their actual file types not just by looking at the filename, but also by peeking into the file contents. This comes in handy for files that have the wrong file extension.

##Powerful query syntax: In addition to basic constructs like OR, AND and NOT DocFetcher also supports, among other things: Wildcards, phrase search, fuzzy search ("find words that are similar to..."), proximity search ("these two words should be at most 10 words away from each other"), boosting ("increase the score of documents containing...")

@Tom. Yes, this new version is also dual pane of a kind. But I have not yet taken any interest into this feature, so I really can't explain myself other than, it looks different from other dual panes... ? However, there are many features and settings to do. Maybe even more than Miles apparently did the first time he tested it - at least I never had the drag & drop problem he described he had.

I am a big fan of TeraCopy, so I have tried to purchase a license for this old problematic laptop I have been given. Unfortunately there is something wrong, be it soft and or hard ware, but whatever it is, it has made Java become a huge problem to me, and I have not yet been able to fix it. Java is saying on their homepage that one should wait 10-60 seconds before Java will respond. But Codesctor's shopping cart waited for less than a 10'th of a second, before I was re-directed to >"Payment information not received, did you enable JavaScript?"<. Sad story, I am sorry. I have not yet received an answer from Sales.

Did any one else have problems with Codesector's shopping cart?  tellme

I felt certain this story already has been told here at DC. However, I couldn't find it, so...:


Top story by Woody Leonhard http://windowssecrets.com...o-keep-user-data-private/ :

>>Defying Feds, MS tries to keep user data private
Microsoft is currently fighting a federal search warrant demanding that the company release emails stored in Ireland.

Here's why you should be extremely concerned by a U.S. court's actions — and what you can do about it.

I'll start with a brief history of the case:

In December 2013, having been shown probable cause, Magistrate Judge for the Southern District of New York James Francis issued a search warrant ordering Microsoft to disclose the contents of a specific @msn.com email account. (A copy of the warrant and related documents discussed below are posted on the Electronic Frontier Foundation's site.)

While preparing to comply with the warrant, Microsoft discovered that only the account holder's name, email address, country, and similar information were stored in Microsoft's U.S.-based servers. The true subjects of the search — the emails — actually sat in a server in Dublin, Ireland (most likely because the person who set up the account told Microsoft that he or she lived outside the U.S.).

As required by the warrant, Microsoft disclosed the details of the account to federal investigators/attorneys — but it refused to divulge the content of the emails because, according to Microsoft, it was outside the jurisdiction of U.S. courts.


"If this Court rules that the U.S. Government may unilaterally reach into foreign countries and expose their citizens' personal digital letters, the United States and its citizens cannot complain when foreign governments do the same to email content stored here."

In November, Apple, Oracle, IBM, HP, and other organizations with irons in the same online-data fire petitioned the European Union for help. Ireland, which obviously should have some say in the matter, specifically asked the European Commission to file a brief supporting Microsoft's appeal, according to a MerrionStreet report. That article quotes Irish European Affairs and Data Protection Minister Dara Murphy:

"By seeking direct access to data held in the E.U. through the U.S. judicial system, existing legal mechanisms for mutual assistance between jurisdictions may be being effectively bypassed. There are fundamental issues at stake here as regards the protection of personal data that is held within the European Union."

On Dec. 8, Microsoft took its appeal up the ladder to the U.S. Second Circuit Court, where the case stands for now. It could eventually end up in the U.S. Supreme Court.

What this conflict means to U.S. citizens

Many Americans might view this case as primarily an issue for Europeans. But that's far from the case. In a Dec. 8 blog post, Microsoft General Counsel Brad Smith adroitly turned the problem around — what if German authorities targeted an American citizen who stored personal information in a U.S.-based German bank? His example:

"Imagine this scenario. Officers of the local Stadtpolizei investigating a suspected leak to the press descend on Deutsche Bank headquarters in Frankfurt, Germany. They serve a warrant to seize a bundle of private letters that a New York Times reporter is storing in a safe deposit box at a Deutsche Bank USA branch in Manhattan. The bank complies by ordering the New York branch manager to open the reporter's box with a master key, rummage through it, and fax the private letters to the Stadtpolizei."

The Microsoft warrant brings up numerous long-term implications. For example, if the Feds prevail, what would stop a judge outside the U.S. from compelling Microsoft to hand over the contents of your Outlook.com account? Citing the Microsoft case, could officials in, say, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, or any other country you care to name force Apple into recording your iPhone conversations?

In other words, are you willing to subject yourself to any analogous "probable-cause" requirement issued by any country on the planet?

In my opinion — and the opinion of many others who value privacy — that way lies madness.


There’s no direct way, short of hoisting a picket sign and marching in front of the Second Circuit courthouse, that typical computer users can make our opinions known to the judiciary — but there are other avenues to express your views.

First, get the word out to others you know. I’m amazed at how many people read the headlines, see that Microsoft is fighting for data privacy, then scoff and move on to the next story. This is an important issue — right up there with net neutrality — that should be discussed and understood by everyone who uses email.

Second, if you’re a U.S. citizen, notify your congresspersons. The Senate website has complete >instructions< for emailing or snailmailing senators; the House site has help for finding your congress critter. Also, the sites for specific representatives usually include links for sending email.

When you write, tell your congressional representatives that you’re disturbed by the course of Second Circuit case 14-2985-CV. Tell them that they should consider amending 18 USC 2703 to clearly delineate the legal distinctions of domestic and international email. <<

The short link http://dailytoughmen.com/...uo/index.php?SourceId=773 is not dangerous by itself. But the extra "LINE_ITEM_ID_WILL_BE_HERE_ON_SERVING" -part is a line causing Norton 'safeweb' to react, and seems to have to do with "Fake App Attack: Fake Browser Update"! So someone in your family has probably clicked a fake "update now"-button on the web. I would say there most likely is more stuff to be found on your PC - so a scan&clean is important!

Surfing the Internet and downloading without anti-virus, is only acceptable when you are in absolute control of where&what - and you obviously aren't. So; Anti-virus, here hulkbuster comes! Or; family, stay off my PC!!
