what about StopKa
OK. I thought I would give it a go.Problem 1
What I expect to see when setting up an index is a number of obvious options to select. At a minimum-
- location(s) of files/documents to index
- types of file/document to index
- location to save index to
- name of index
I did not find this. And in my initial looking around the menus, I could not even find the location in which the index would be placed.Problem 2
Never mind, I thought. I'll try an index and see how it goes and then should be able to find the index file easily enough.
I did the index; drive C. Indexed lots of files; only just over 3 hours. Found index in C:\Stopka\. But however I tried to search, I couldn't get it to find any documents.Problem 3
Never mind, I thought again. I will move the index location to a suitable place. I will index most of the internal hard drives. And left it to run overnight.
In morning, a visual C error message. And a Windows message saying windows had run out of memory and had switched to a paging file (first time that has ever happened to me in recent years, and not a lot was running apart from Stopka) - and it was obviously running like treacle. Restarted machine. Deleted Stopka.
Sorry to be negative, but I do expect a much easier path into testing out a Search program.
