    • I used Copernic Desktop Search on Windows, I searched for a long time for a replacement on Linux. DocFetcher was the best option, although it is difficult to install. mccaldeiraApr 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • The free version of Copernic Desktop Search has a limit to the number of files that you can search. To my knowledge, DocFetcher has no such limit. When Copernic introduced the limit, I switched to DocFetcher, to my full satisfaction. Guest • Jun 2017 • 0 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
