We have a folders with files (a few thousand of them) about 0.5 Gb in total. Each file contains Word, Pdf and Notepad files containing text.

Is there any software that can search them all very quickly to find specific words/ phrases in the documents. Much like google searches the internet (or I think it does).

If I need to upload documents into a database that's something, I think worth doing.

So far I have been using various File Search software:




All seem too slow, taking up to a minute or more to search - google has spoilt me. Any solutions?

Many Thanks
