SearchWithin is a free full text index search engine that allows
you to quickly search inside the files on your drive or network.
It looks beyond the titles and inside PDF, HTML, Text, Microsoft
Word, Microsoft Excel, Word Perfect and Microsoft PowerPoint documents.
If Omniformat with the OCR Module is installed, SearchWithin will index normally unsearchable PDF files created from scans or faxes by employing Optical Character Recognition.
SearchWithin works just like major search engines, using advanced
querying and full-text search technologies to help you find the
information you need fast. Results are automatically displayed in
Using SearchWithin, you can easily retrieve
the documents that contain the multiple keywords and phrases you
are interested in. SearchWithin makes it easy to apply powerful
"and/or" operators to your search. It also allows you
to search multiple indexes across a network and publish your own
indexes for others.
SearchWithin works by building an index of your
drive's documents. This allows it to sort through gigabytes of data
in under a second. The SearchWithin Indexing Service may be installed
to conveniently schedule automatic, daily index updates. Indexing
an entire 20 GB hard drive takes only about 30 minutes. You can
add or update documents at any time by running the indexer again.
You may also create a new index by selecting the "Create New Index"
The free version of SearchWithin will display a
sponsor page in your web browser each time you launch the software
and every fourth search. If you would prefer not to see sponsor
pages, you may download a license key for $9.95. SearchWithin never
transmits any personal information or query information. Please
