Google comes to the rescue

The day has arrived – I finally found a practical use for Google’s Desktop Search. After having it installed for like a month and using it a total of half a dozen times to which it never returned any useful results I have finally used it and been sucessfully. Maybe it is not such a waste of space after all.

Don’t get me wrong though, a month and one sucessfully usage is far from great especially considering I have to have an application running in the background and sitting in my system tray. But at least it is a step forward.

The problem actually began last night when I saved a text document, in what I thought was Desktop. Well I can only presume that’s what I thought, I don’t really remember. Anyway when I came to find the text document this morning it wasn’t there.

I was about to start trawling through all my locations when I remembered Google Desktop. So I opened the page up and ran a search for some text I knew was in the document. And the text document came up sitting in the root of my hard drive. Cool :).
