The installation of The Sleuthhound is easy and intuitive. You
are give the opportunity of installing the program files anywhere you want them.
Plus you are given the option to place a shortcut on the QuickLaunch area and
When you start The Sleuthhound you will find out that you have a full 30 days to
try out the program. Then you are asked to define a search area, with the My
Documents selected as the default. After you do this The Sleuthhound will then
index the search area so that when you want to search all of the heavy lifting
has been already done by The Sleuthhound. Depending on the size of the area to
be searched this could take some time. You can also define what kind of
documents you want to include. I let it include all of the possible types, and
after awhile I got a message saying that the trial version is limited to 2000
So now you have your "Search Area" now what? Well you search of course! That is
when you are going start getting excited. The Sleuthhound searches through all
of that created index in a New York minute. Make that a New York second. Then it
presents you with a beautiful HTML page that can be saved and also it can be
made into a even nicer HTML "Search Report" page. This page and the Result
Browser page will show you a summary of the documents in the search results and
a clickable link to the document it found. Nice really nice.
In conclusion before I tried The Sleuthhound I didn't know that I needed it,
after I tried it I can't do without it.
Try It! Buy It!
