I have a network that includes a Windows small business server 2008 and 7 workstations running Windows 7 professional
Up till recently, the users could search, from their workstations, for content in a Word document in a very large 80 GB master folder on the server called "MasterFiles" that all users have full access to.
Recently, one of the attorneys is looking for a specific document and he provided specific content that was in the body of the document. The user has a drive letter map to the masterfiles folder on the server. They would try a search for any content, from their workstation, of what they believe was in this document - but come up with nothing.
I logged on to the server and attended the same search and advanced search to no avail.
When I went to confirm if indexing was enabled on the server, it shows that is not enabled but from what I understand, you should still be able to search
Looking for best recommendations to search for specific content in a Word document on the server.
Should I consider using a third-party tool?
Any help and suggestions would be appreciated
