Copernic is an excellent files indexer. Highly recommended.

I'm trying the one month free trial and I have to admit that this software is really good. The ocr is pretty straigthforward and its search works very well.

  • Copernic Desktop Search (CDS) is free only for non-commercial home use. Commercial use requires the Professional or Corporate version.
  • IYF is completely free, also in commercial environment
  • IYF is portable, needs no admin rights on the local computer, CDS must be installed and cannot be used on computers in the job without admin rights
  • With IYF you can very quickly find files on remote servers, on which you have no admin rights, so it is ideal for quick searches on very big company networks with thousands of directories
  • Only "CDS Corporate" allows to find files, stored anywhere on the enterprise network. the free Copernic Desktop Search Home" allows only to search files on the PC's hard drive.
  • IYF creates indexes for only the directories you select
  • IYF has also a selectable option to search inside files as CDS can do
  • The portable "Index Your Files" version 5.0.2.6 is lightweight and has only a size of 969 KB
  • Copernic Desktop Search Home needs 9.5 MB
  • CDS for Home Use is only available in only 4 languages: English, French, German, Spanish
  • IYF is available in the many languages: English, Spanish, Romanian, Italian, German, Portuguese, Russian, French, S/T Chinese, Bulgarian, Brazilian, Turkish, Czech, Dutch, Polish, Lithuanian and Kurdish.

They want 55.45USD for an annual subscription; quite "NUTTY" in my opinion.

Doesn't deliver as good as CDS5. Promises Onenote integration (yet to see) and basically only "scans" the first three categories plus images. Have touched based many times with support; some just repeat a protocol like a recorder, others are sincere to try and help. Not pleased with this edition (and service) so far (2017-02-23)

All in all, this version feels more like an alpha than beta or stable. Sad news from a company that i have always highly esteemed before.

My earlier version was working great but since upgrading to the newer version of CDS, nothing seems to be working smoothly or missing emails and other data.

Am going to remove it and go with an alternative.

This program takes forever to index and it uses a lot of memory of the system. When searching the results are nice.
