RE: Indexing files in network folder

Posted: 08-25-2008, 11:20 AM
There is an add-in for indexing network drives, but only for 32-bit systems
(http://support.microsoft.com/kb/918996).
No info available on 64-bit version of this add-in but it would be the best
solution for you and everyone else who uses network storage (NAS devices are
getting more and more popular ....)

Thanks MadCap

But as you point out, this add-in is _not_ supported on Vista x64 systems,
so no luck for me.

This is an odd choice to force upon advanced users: Fill your harddrive or
loose indexing of your personal files !

Any other ideas, anyone?
