Hi

I've got a CD with 53 htm files on it.  I want to be able search across all the files.  I've tried adding the location of the CD to Google (advanced options) but this didn't work.  The only option that I know is to convert each htm document to word, convert to PDF and then create an Adobe Index.  I'd love to hear of another quick and easy solution.

Cheers

You could always try copying the files to a folder on your PC and then add them to the index.

Thanks but won't it only search on the title etc but not the contents, which is what I need.  The Adobe Index searches content of multiple documents.

Google Desktop will search contents. If you use Windows Indexing Service then the Search function on Windows should search contents as well.
