UPDATE: Google has discontinued Desktop as of September 2011

Google Desktop works great with SimpleIndex because all index data can be saved to the folder and file names as well as the file properties, and OCR text can be saved to hidden layers in PDF files. Google Desktop will read all of these elements when building its index and will return any matching files when you search.
