I want a windows vista compatible portable application that provides fast search on my flash drive for those occasions when I work on another machine. Something like google desktop for a flash drive. Any suggestions or alternatives?

Why do you need this? Explorer can search a flash drive. – John Jan 11 '11 at 22:24
If you have more than a handful of files, Explorer will be very slow to search through them. – Colin Pickard Jan 25 '11 at 10:43

Index Your Files looks like what you want.

I have Agent Ransack on my flash drive. It can be used a portable app.
