note Note:

OCR feature will enables you to convert scanned paper documents into searchable PDF file.  Searching for this OCRed text in Docsvault's search function is possible through the indexing process. You need PDF iFilters for the indexing service to index PDF files. On any 32 bits OS, installing the free Adobe Reader 9.0 + on the server machine (you do not need to install the PDF iFilter on all client machines) will install the proper iFilters necessary. For 64 bits OS, please install the 'Adobe PDF iFilter 9 for 64-bit platforms' available freely from Adobe's website. At the time of this writing the 64 bit iFilter is available here.
