Current Smartphone have a storage capacity of several gigabytes. More and more information is stored on mobile devices. To meet the challenge of information organization, the authors turn to desktop search. Users often possess multiple devices, and synchronize (subsets of) information between them. This makes file synchronization more important. This paper presents Dessy, a desktop search and synchronization framework for mobile devices. Dessy supports synchronization of search results, individual files, and directory trees. It allows finding and synchronizing files that reside on remote computers, or the Internet. The contributions of this paper include an energy usage evaluation of the system.
