I have used CDS since v3.x. I stopped using v7.x late last year on my previous machine (a Lenovo T430, i5-x64 Centrino running Win7 Enterprise SP1 fully patched with 16 GB RAM), as the machine couldn't keep up with all of the programs I had running on it, and CDS can be disk-intensive. Finally, a couple of months ago, the motherboard's disk controller failed and the system completely bricked. I now have a brand-new Lenovo P52 with a six-core i7 running Win10 Pro 64-bit v1903 fully patched, also w 16 GB RAM. I'm now willing to give CDS another shot, because of a new and improved machine.

However, the primary reason I'm considering reloading it, and the reason you should too, is that I found it to be an excellent content-indexer, particularly of MSO applications; even better than Windows Search. It runs parallel to Windows Search.

Maybe give it a trial before you buy?
