hi Rafiq,

thank you for the invite and explanations (nice blog)
BTW I have had a customer use over 3 gigs in 4 days since he downloaded
google desktop. it seems google desktop is connecting to the web and
downloading.

Since you are the Google expert that I know I was wondering if you have
ever heard of this or perhaps know what the problem can be.

many thanks

Thank you for the question, I personally do not use any Google products that do not work in the browser, Miguel does/did use Google Desktop at some time. I have heard and read rumours on other sites and mailing lists which I cannot verify about the pros and cons of google desktop. As for the bandwidth problem, we are on uncapped broadband wireless internet so the bandwidth we use does not really affect us. The bandwidth we do monitor are our clients web servers online.

I would suggest sorting your files, emails & folders as you would not need google dektop to search your computer if your files/emails/documents are already sorted.

Have a look at this Google Helpdesk destkop page for more information.

Should any of you have any Web-related questions feel free to send us an email.
