"When large amount of file, indexing and search are very slow"

What do you like best?

Overall is a better solution than windows search and opens very fast

What do you dislike?

Version 6, 7 and 7.0.1 seems to have problems with large amount of files, because the indexing takes very long and sometimes loops; and when performing searches it can take more than 5 seconds for copernic desktop search to return the results.

Those problems are not present when Copernic deals with average amount of files or small amount of files.

When windows is starting, Copernic Desktop Search takes a lot to load and impacts heavily windows startup time

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Be advised that with very large amount of file, indexing can have problems and search results take a bit longer to appear

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm using for personal use only, I used to be very satisfied with the program but have been struggling with versions 6, 7 and 7.0.1. hope this gets addressed soon by copernic

Currently I've a support ticket in progress for those problems, and hope they get solved

"Love this search engine"

What do you like best?

It can handle massive amount of emails and files. I have over 1.5 million emails & files in various formats, like PST and Thunderbird and is relativly fast. The fact that it can scan and index within word or pdf is great. I have used coopernic for a numbe of years. The new version was able to use old index file rather than have to reindex.

What do you dislike?

It can take a few seconds to come up with results. When it starts up it can take a bunch of resources so i would put into smart mode where it backs off when other processes are running

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I can easily fimd specific emails based on keywords from over last 20 years, which is helpful for inquires or litigation.

What Desktop Search solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"search your way"

What do you like best?

Application used to perform advanced searches in the cloud, a great business search engine, excellent shared index, all operating systems bring their own search engines by default copernic desktop search is a program designed to find the most relevant information on your computer, from emails even multimedia files. Create words from advanced searches, it is easy to use.

With Copernic carrying out searches brings excellent results.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes in searches appear indexed data that are no longer in the computer, I hope in the next update can correct this.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Copernic Desktop Search overcomes the default search that Windows brings.

"Easy way to find what you need"

What do you like best?

I can narrow the search by file name, type of file, and using quote marks around the search term. Once I have a list of files, I can then sort them by title, file type, or date to help me find what I'm looking for faster if the results list is long.

What do you dislike?

Unless I do a new index of the desktop, the results sometimes include files that are no longer on my computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Worth a try to see if it meets your search needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an editor and conference director, I often need to search for names, topics, or article titles; and Copernic makes this fast and easy. It's more powerful and comprehensive than Microsoft's search function and includes files on a USB drive I frequently have plugged in to my laptop.

"Useful Tool For Unorganized or Too Many Files"

What do you like best?

For those of us who are unorganized, save everything, or aren't using cloud based services like google drive or Dropbox, this is a useful tool for helping to find and locate files on your computer or your server. It is user friendly and can help make you more efficient if organization isn't your strong suit.

What do you dislike?

The fact that we need a tool like this. People should just be organized, but that's not the problem of the software. This solves that problem and is perfect for people like this.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're not organized, than its a useful tool for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Save time finding files and potentially losing files.

"Usefull Software"

What do you like best?

The speed and accuracy by which it searches.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the whole index gets erased due to some internal error for which no reason is displayed. You are only intimated that existing index has been erased and you will have to built new one.

Also the pricing is not perfect as after purchasing the same, i was offered 50% discounted priced.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

way better than Windows default search.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saves time in searching

Nothing. It will not launch. Brittle, cloodgey and bumbling code. Boo.

The fact that the proggie will not launch. New install of Windows 10 Pro. Installed, will not launch. Uninstalled, will not launch. The splash java applet starts, it says loading plugins, then it poops the bed.

Run away. Hide yo kids. Hide yo wives.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Um, none.
