Definitely Endnote is the best to manage the literature.... one option to endnote to use the same system and is free is Zotero.... but the complete one is EndNote...

Not exactly library manager but I use Copernic Desktop Search to index my PDFs.
I found it to be the best index took when I try to search for some article.

I use Mendeley in offline mode, and have run into very few problems. It allows for very quick searching through *almost* every ebook in my collection (~1000), really comfy organizational options, and a clean UI. It's designed for research and holding hundreds to thousands of journal articles, but handles everything else just as well.

Edit: Something important to note is that it only works with pdf's, so keep that in mind.

It depends on what do you want to do with that files. If you are writing a paper/thesis/etc., an information organizer with capacity for citing references is advisable. I have tried many like Procite, Reference Manager, Endnote, Zotero, Mendeley, but what I recommend for Windows OS is Citavi.

If you want to organize your files without assigning keywords or categories to file content but being able to recover the files that have *that_information_mentioned_in_text* then file indexing software is what you need. Copernic Desktop Search is a good one. You could search by filename, text inside the file, dates, directories, etc. A very powerful one but not cheap and useful for LARGE file repository is dtSearch. Copernic is cheaper but is very good for the task.

Finally you will end finding that both approaches are needed combined: reference manager software and automatic file indexing and search software.
