Indexing files on our server.

Hello Experts,

 I manage a SBS 2011 and have had a issue with end users not being able search files by name from there file browser.  with that being said. if they search by name for the file they are looking for the search mostly works, but if its done only with numbers nothing is listed even though the file is in there mapped drives. any suggestions or help?

 Thank you,
 Frank.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sadly, windows search is known for having bugs here and there.
It could very well be that you have come across one.

One free alternative search app that works is Agent Ransack, give it a try.
