Windows 7 search not finding all .pdf on network drive

OK, so the problem I am running into on a client's PC is when he does a search in Windows 7 for *.pdf on a mapped drive it only shows a few files. All of these files are from 2007-2008. Nothing newer than November of 2008. He is using a Windows 7x64 and the server is Server 2003. There are hundreds of pdf files on this mapped drive, yet it only lists a few. I have looked for a few hours on the net and haven't found a working solution to this problem. Figured I would try here. Probably should have tried here first and saved the headache.

Hello,
This patch allows you to add network files to the index without having to make them "always available offline".

It will add a tab in the Indexing Options menu called "Add UNC Location" this is where you add the path of the network folder.

UNCFATPHInstaller.msi

WARNING: This does not support x64 platform

always available offline is not a real solution for network storage, you can't make 2TB available offline if you have a 200GB hard drive

If you are using x64 OS try this free tool: http://zornsoftware.talsit.info/free-downloads?did=2

Not sure if those work or not but the client said to leave it be as the files can be searched for successfully from within Adobe.
