Are you trying to search for content within a WordPerfect® document?
The answer is probably yes but you could not find a solution except a strong document architecture. Most desktop search engine will only index WordPerfect® file name and not their content. With Copernic Desktop Search, WordPerfect® documents (WPD, WPF, WP) and their contents are searchable.
The search engine behind Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8 does not search WordPerfect® files. Therefore, most users are having a hard time finding the right document to accomplish their work tasks. Copernic Desktop Search allows you to save time by finding the document instantly. CDS also spares you the time you spend filing your WordPerfect® files as there were no solution to find your documents except a tidy document structure.
Have you downloaded the 30-day trial?
Copernic does not collect any data through Copernic Desktop Search. No keywords used to do a research are transmitted outside your computer except the ones used to do an Internet search. For the latter, the keywords are transmitted through Internet as they would be when doing a normal Web search without the use of Copernic Desktop Search.
Copernic Desktop Search does not allow transmission of result contents to Copernic Inc. or any of its partners for searches conducted by the user on his computer. Your computer is not logged or made accessible through Copernic Desktop Search to Copernic Inc. or any of its partners.

Most users have some sort of filing system; however your structure will get bigger with files in multiple locations, which can become hard to navigate. You need to remember where the file is located. From time to time, you will ask yourself where to save the document. When you decide to organize your computer, it all makes sense now, but will it make sense further down the road? Probably not!
So, you will start to look for a solution that helps you find that information. Basic search tool offered on Windows PCs have to go through every file every time a query is launched. That’s why there are several search engines available for your desktop. Most of them will have to build an index of the contents of your hard drive and it usually takes several hours.
With the use of a Desktop Search, you may ask yourself, why should I organize my computer now? By knowing where a file could be located, you can help the desktop search refine the search and find the document faster. There is still a need for you to have a basic structure to classify your documents.
