"powerful finds files fast"4.5 starson by perceptiveone
Pros: see all files
Cons: power hungry
Summary: I have just upgraded to vista and had heard so much positive things about it search abilities that I could hardly wait to use it. Well its not bad for titles but not for content. I had used the beta x-1 (yahoo desktop search) on xp and except for some crashing (beta remember) I was happy. So I decided to upgrade to the real thing which I knew was free....well not anymore. Looked for a replacement Cnet recommended copernic. What a disappointment.unfortunately I now after trying the new version on vista and see all the problems I had installing the pay for version on xp found this product is not worth the bandwidth let alone the money. The install was problematic because it would not index. Apparently it wont install properly if you change the install directory. And then it took quite a few hoops to get it running properly and too much time to find the answer to the problem. I have never had this kind of problem when installing a program. It seems absurd to have this happen in 2008. I did finally get it working properly on xp but refused fo find movie files. Then on vista the same install problem existed but when I finally got it running it would not index Window mail and would not find media files.
X-1 is far superior. Want to see the email in orig. form x-1 is there for you. Want to search for "exi*ent.pdf". X-1 shines. Others not so much.
