DiskSearch is a tool for searching for files on all your removable media disks,
e.g. DVD's, SD cards or backup tapes. For instance you can search for songs on
your MP3-CD's or for a document on your backup DVD's. For advanced queries there
is a regular expression search mode.
The search is based on a simple database file which needs to be filled once by
adding all your disks to it.
