as "combination" searches to search
files that have not been indexed.

to give you complete control over the content
of each index. It will automatically collect Meta
data from HTML, Word and PDF documents as well
as from media files such as MP3, ASF and WMV to
allow field searching.
Indexes can be automatically updated by using
the Windows Task Scheduler to reflect additions,
deletions and modifications to your document collection.
