We've got 2 computers running Vista (as opposed to XP on all other computers on the network). The problem is getting Vista to index the mapped network drive so we can use the Vista search function to find files.
I tried the "Indexing Options" utility where you can "Modify" and then "Show All Locations". However, the mapped drives don't appear in the list. Is there a trick to getting mapped drives to show?
I've also tried making the mapped drive available "offline" so that everything would get indexed that way on the local machine. However, I simply have too many files on the server to make this practical and quickly exceeded the memory cache (which I don't really want to do anyway).
Ideally, I would like a search utility like XP or make the Vista search function work by indexing the mapped drive. I'm willing to try 3rd party applications if you can recommend one.
