Search Network Drive?
We store all of our personal Data on a Network Drive. I'd like the Search to
Index that share and or Mapped Drive.

My Show All Locations button in the Indexing Options Control Panel is Grayed
out. I do not see a way to Add a Share or Mapped Drive.

thanks,
Scott<-

Re: Search Network Drive?
I have the same issue. I am running Vista. Do I have to install WDS in order
to
index network drives? I mean Vista already has its indexing search engine -
why
install WDS, I thought WDS is for XP users to have Vista-like search engine.

IOW, should I install WDS on vista?

Regards,
Maciej

You must only install UNCFATPH plugin. It's compatible with new search
engine in Vista.
