As PC hard drives get bigger and new information sources become available, users willhave much more data of different types, including multimedia, on their computers. This makesit increasingly difficult to find documents, e-mail messages, spreadsheets, audio clips, and other files. Current desktop-based search capabilities, such as those in Windows, are inadequate to meet this challenge. <p>In response, major Web search providers and other companies are offering engines for searching PC hard drives. This requires new search approaches because desktop-based documents are generally structured differently than those on the Web.</p>
