Reverse Engineering Google Desktop Search

Sriram Krishnan took a look into the internals of the Google desktop search to see how it works. He used non-intrusive tools like FileMon & Regmon to see it in action. Do note that this post only covers how it crawls and indexes. He hasn't looked into how the results are displayed yet - but Scott Hanselman has done some interesting analysis in this area. Interesting stuff, even if it only scratches the surface of how the tool indexes. [DOTNETJUNKIES.COM]
