Searching large PDF files
Posted on 2014-04-23
I have a network share with almost 3 TB worth of PDF files (legal briefs, maps, scanned documents). The files average around 200mb each, with some going all the way to 1 GB. These files all have Fast Web View enabled and are in the most current PDF format. The issue we are having is that to open these files takes quite a while still and then searching them is almost impossible. It can take upwards of 10 minutes to search for one word terms using Acrobat Pros Find utility. What utilities or management programs would you suggest to manage these PDF files and make them searchable. We are even willing to pay for the google search appliance if that would work.
