Gumshoe Desktop Search indexes local files of various formats on a Windows desktop and provides a search GUI. The project is developed in Java and licensed under GPL. It builds on other opensource projects which projects come with their own licences.

Currently only c:\Documents and Settings directory is indexed (non-configurable). Indexing only happens after starting Gumshoe.

This is an alpha/prototype release, expect bugs/problems/issues, but at the same time wide ranging of functionality still can be implemented.

This project builds on other open-source projects (offered under separate licenses).
