About the VizSeek Desktop App

The VizSeek Desktop App makes it easy to get your files from your file system to VizSeek so that they can be indexed and searched. In order to be searchable, a file must be "indexed." For VizSeek, this means that our state-of-the-art indexing algorithm creates a "shape signature" of your file, and it is the shape signature that is used for searching.

There are two versions of the VizSeek Desktop App, and the difference between them is how they handle indexing:

Server-side Indexing

With server-side indexing, copies of your files are transferred and synced to VizSeek’s servers. VizSeek performs indexing and keeps your original file plus the indexed "shape signature" file on VizSeek servers. This version is "lighter weight" since all the indexing is happening on VizSeek servers, but your complete file has been transferred to VizSeek servers (the transfer is encrypted).

Client-side Indexing

System Requirements

The VizSeek Desktop app runs on Windows 7 or newer. It also requires the Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework, but if you don’t have it installed, the VizSeek Desktop installer will add it for you.
