Pros: Software keeps track of everything, and makes it easy to search through groups of PDFs for specific items. The price is reasonable, and it works well overall.

Cons: It can hog resources if you're not careful in setup, it can be a little quirky sometimes, and accuracy has been improving over time, but it doesn't find 100% of the items 100% of the time. Some upgrades cost money over and above what we already paid, and updates can be frequent.

Overall: Quick and thorough search.

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.

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.
