I think it's supposed to be a good option. Back when I was looking for a desktop search solution, I went with Archivarius 3000, mainly because Copernic did not support indexing of The Bat! e-mail.

Curt, if you haven't done so already, I suggest perhaps installing the free version and giving it a try...then decide if you want to pay and upgrade it to pro.

http://www.copernic....ucts/desktop-search/

There is also a thread on desktop search tools here on DC (rather old though), where Copernic's is mentioned and compared to others quite a bit: http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2434.0

I see you made quite a few contributions to that discussion, too.

I used to use the free version, before it became so restricted compared to the commercial one that I decided I was being bullied and quit. (I may be misremembering, but I think they may also have ditched support for .DBF tables, which was my main reason for using it.) But it IS very good, if you want to pay the money and if you're interested in searching the contents of your files. (If all you care about is filenames, I'd go with Everything, Locate32 or the new version of Listary.)

I used X1 for a while, too. Their viewer library (the Stellent one, I think) is still occasionally very useful, but its the only bit of the free version of X1 I kept. Can't remember anymore why I went off it...
