DocFetcher is a powerful software program designed for quickly locating document files on your computer, together with other file types (e.g. music, pictures). The tool also searches for content within these items.
The interface of DocFetcher is based on a standard window with a well-organized layout. On the left side of the frame, you can filter the document types. The app supports FLAC, HTML, AbiWord, MP3, MS Excel, TXT, RTF and PDF files, among others.
In order to perform a search task, you must define the location to look in, by creating an index form; this can be a folder, archive, Outlook PST item or the Clipboard.
It is possible to filter results by establishing the minimum and maximum file size. When building an index form you can make several adjustments. For instance, you can index HTML pairs as single documents, detect executable 7Z and ZIP archives, and store relative paths if it’s possible. Options can be restored to their default values.
Several configuration settings are also available through the Preferences screen. Therefore, the search history can be automatically cleared on exit. But you may also reconfigure the global hotkey and alter the default highlight color, among others. A Readme file explains every aspect of DocFetcher.
The program requires a very low amount of CPU and system memory, so it doesn’t put a strain on the computer’s overall performance. It has a good response time and quickly reveals results, without causing the operating system to hang, crash or pop up error dialogs. All in all, DocFetcher provides a straightforward solution to searching text within files. There’s also a portable edition, Portable DocFetcher.
