Well, I use WordPerfect for Windows, which has an excellent, fast, versatile
file indexer built in. (Word has a file indexer, too, I think.) As I'm
developing the habit of using it to search for keywords or phrases, the actual
file name has become somewhat less important to me.

Someone on the list mentioned askSAM; I don't know anything about it. I think
there are standalone file system indexers available. Then you could go up to a
document management system. But that's out of my league!

Being the only documentation person here I am finding myself the recipient
of loads of valuable documentation that should be organized and saved. I
don't think I could possibly be the only Technical Writer that ends up with
so many directories and files that searching for documents becomes
necessary. The eight character naming convention is a big ambiguous if you
have hundreds of documents, especially if they were named by other people.

Does anyone know of some software or shareware that helps to organize/index
files/documents on the PC platform?
