Copernic desktop search used to be a good product, now it's defintely not worth the price.

Pros: It used to be a decent replacement for Google desktop search. It makes it possible to search for all documents and emails on your pc. When it works correctly, it works well. Otherwise, it's just another program consuming electrons for no good reason.

Cons: The interface is clunky at best, the results are disappointing and support is non-existent. When we first purchased the product, I bought five licenses. Unlike most software applications, I actually received five separate licenses that were installed on each workstation. Unfortunately, I learned the the license is per "user" and not per PC. So when an employee would log into another pc which had Copernic installed and 'licensed', they were unable to use it because the license was tied to another user's login. This is a very poorly conceived configuration.

Finally, after a few times seeking support, I could not get a reply from the creators in order to resolve numerous issues with the application. They were completely MIA.

I highly discourage anyone from wasting their money on this program.

Overall: It was very good at first. But as the index grew, the performance and reliability of the application plummeted. Overall, the biggest benefit was uninstalling the application and finding another solution.

Pros: It is imperative in the law business to be able to keyword search for terms that you have encountered in the past to reduce your time. Copernic allows this to happen.

Cons: It seems that there are some issues with it searching emails that are not located on a server. I use google services and Copernic will not index them.

Slows down the system and doesn't find everything.

Pros: This software is inexpensive, and it finds almost everything. If a user doesn't need to find every single instance of a word or phrase, this will do just fine.

Cons: Even when set NOT to run when other work is being done on the computer, this slows down the computer noticeably. It also doesn't find 100% of everything searched for, and in my work I need to find every instance, not just most of them. I've upgraded this software over and over (paid upgrades) hoping they'd solve these problems, but the issues remain for me and my team.

Overall: Searches everything including emails, PDFs, photos and more.
