    Pros, Cons

    I love DocFetcher! I discovered this gem of a program when Windows stopped supporting string searches in word processors other than Word.

    🏁 Competitors: the generic string search available in Windows, Agent Ransack, Locate32, Everything
    👍 Pros:    Beautiful intuitive interface. easy to use, once you set up the index.
    👎 Cons:    If you have a large collection of files to index, you will eventually be unable to search all your documents at the same time. you have to set up separate indexes and search each one separately. available in a variety of versions, up to 64 bit.|The help files are good. however, learning how to set up an index can be frustrating.
