  • Index network share

    Hello,

    I would like to know if it is possible to index a network share and how.

    I've been looking around and found this:
    "1. Create a folder on your hard drive for shares. i.e. c:\share2. Create another folder in the above share. i.e. c:\share\music2. Link the Library to this folder. 3. Delete the folder.4. Use the mklink in an elevated command prompt to make a symbolic link. Name the link the same as the folder you created above. i.e - mklink /d c:\share\music \\server\music5. Done. Now you have non-indexed UNC path as a library."

    but this didn't now index.

    thanks

          Have you tried the first few links here:

          (OK, I see you probably have, but worth retrying)
          Also it may help us if you tell us a little bit about the network device you are connecting to as that may make a difference

            For that you need to provide us with more information than you have.

            By the sounds of it you may be running Server 2003? Is this correct?

                Use Windows Search on the client side.
