Heh, heh - as noted elsewhere ( see this post
), I've also licensed dtSearch
and love it... My software obsession of late has been for search tools and I have MANY. The three indexing options I use are Archivarius, dtSearch, and X1. Likely, though, I'll stick with X1 on my work machine and move dtSearch and Archivarius to my other machines. Archivarius is awesome in terms of the formats it supports, its speed, and its amazingly small footprint. I was very happy with it on its own for over a year and remain happy with it. Of late, though, I have missed the ability to preview my search results with formatting, which led me back to X1 and also to re-evaluate dtSearch. Both are excellent. dtSearch is lighter on resources and less intrusive, but generates a larger index file. X1 generates the smallest index and has the best previewing capabilities and Archivarius generates the largest index (up to four times the size).
Sorry, typing this is a rush job - my four year old is having a melt down and my attention has been split between this post and his tantrum! Happy days...
