In this paper, we present a file search mechanism that can utilize the ontology alignments to facilitate file retrieval on resource-limited devices by exploiting the knowledge of more than one ontologies. This enables the device users to take advantage of all ontologies, which might have been developed in the same domain. A semantic-based file retrieval framework was previously presented for resource-limited devices, which annotates files with its basic attributes and provides file retrieval capabilities. A generic ontology was developed to define the most commonly used keywords which can be used as metadata of the stored files. The ontology was employed to exploit the semantic based file retrieval capability. The search mechanism was evaluated by formulating two test cases. In first test case the framework make use of single ontology while in the second test case, the ontology alignments were utilized by aligning two ontologies. The implications of ontology alignment support were analyzed through probabilistic evaluation, which shows the progress in file retrieval efficiency.
