The DocFetcher program allows us to perform advanced searches of documents within our pc by means of words, phrases or text strings. It is a free open source program, available in several versions (for Windows, for Linux and portable). You can search in files with different extensions: HTML, PDF, DOC, XLS, PDF, ODT, RTF, VSD, etc. It allows you to filter the document search through different indicators, in an easy and simple way. Another advantage of this program is its support, which is incredible and guides you to any doubt.
In order to work, it is necessary to have the Java Runtime Environment program installed on your computer, as DocFetcher uses java.
Just look for documents with the extensions mentioned above, omitting music, video and image files.
In order to manage it correctly it is necessary to have knowledge about the search, but with the daily handling of the program experience is acquired obtaining with it greater benefits.
We handle many .doc, .xls, .pdf, .ppt, .odt files on a daily basis, which we store in several directories and this useful program allows us to search through that amount of files through a keyword or a phrase.
The problem I have solved using this wonderful program is the fast search of documents, given the large amount of files we handle daily. I have used several search tools and none like DocFetcher so I highly recommend it.
