    To be fair, unless something has changed, Copernic generally pulls in good reviews. I did have it installed a long time ago just to test it out. Personally I found the indexing to be a quite drawn out process, which apparently is something others have experienced as well. Other user reviews suggest this isn't a Universal experience and may even be something associated with the earlier versions.

    As a home user, I could never really get my cpu cycles worth out of having a 3rd party indexing/search system onboard. Eventually I uninstalled it, simply because for me, it didn't earn it's keep on my system.

    They are very similar. I prefer Cathy for removable drives and Locate32 for local drives.
