Is there some desktop/server search engine (such as Google Desktop or Copernic) satisfying the below requests.


  1. Must work on Windows server and Windows 7 environments.

  2. Indexing can be scheduled.

  3. Fast search using index file.

  4. Search targets should be content and titles of MS Outlook mails, *.txt, *.doc, *.xls etc.

Nice to have:

  1. Possibility to set search targets e.g. uncompiled computer code (which are usually text files but with less usual extensions such as *.p, *.i, *.cls etc.)

  2. Freeware.
