Indexing Options for Network shared folders

Posted: 08-06-2006, 05:00 AM
I have Windows XP Pro running as a file and print server.

I can access all the files and printers from Vists 32 but can find no way to
setup indexing options to index the files on the server.

Is this possible or do I have to bring all the files back to the workstaions?

What are the options?

Thanks

If, in Vista, you use Windows Explorer to view a folder on the XP Pro
machine, is there a menu option that says "Add To Index" in the strip just
below the address window?

Hi Mark,

Ok I worked out what you meant by strip I think. The option is NOT there.

Here is what I see.

Organize Views "Network Connections " "Setup a home or small business network"

Any clues on how I get that option?

Ok just checking a bit more I see the bar changes depending on what network
folder you select. If I select the data folder I get.

Organize Views and Burn no where can I find Add to index unfortunatly. Out
of interest I find browsing and copying files in general to be slow and often
locks the computer for a long time.
