Hello

I have a problem that when computers on domain is searching for new files that is under 20 minutes old on a shared folder the search function cant find the file but you can see the file in explore.

But the problem is not there when a computer is not on the domain.

But I will like a answer to why windows search don't work. not a program because then I have to install it on all computers and learn the users how it work.
it sounds like it didnt get indexed yet.
Open control panel, indexing options, see if it is supposed to be indexed and if it is still indexing.
