Windows 7 Search and My Documents on a Network Share

In a small domain, users have their "My Documents" folders redirected to a network share (e.g. \\server1\users\jimmy). Win XP can search the documents just fine, while Win 7 just returns nothing. What can I do to make Win 7 index the documents folder correctly?

I read that one way is to enable offline files, but for security reasons that's not an option for me.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Click on Indexing Options in the Control Panel>Modify, and see if you casn add the location there.....

Also, in Folder Options>Search Tab>Check the second option at the top...... Not an exact fix for THIS issue, but should improve search results.....

I can't add any location. And the second thing is already on.
