I still use FileLocator Pro, but I just tested Google Drive and it was able to find keywords inside docx files, so that's an option too if you're happy to upload them all.

It's more basic than FileLocator, but very fast. It can't do wildcard or partial word searches, and won't summarise the hits it found in each document. I suspect it might do word stemming without being asked.

If this is about detecting plagiarism, aren't there programs designed just for that? I thought I had heard of programs that can detect slight changes where people have tried to rewrite other people's work.
