I am sure most of you would have tried one of the free desktop search applications like Google Desktop Search, MSN Desktop Search or Copernic. These work great for home users and for those who have all the files on their laptops/desktops. For those in Enterprises where most of the corporate data is stored in central file shares or in Sharepoint servers, till now there was no convenient way to search both Desktop and Enterprise data. Recently MS released the free Windows Desktop Search for Enterprise that does everything the MSN Desktop Search does plus has the ability to search Sharepoint sites and File shares.

Configuring this can be little tedious – my good friend and Sydney RD Adam Cogan has written this good guide on doing it, check it out here.
