Looking for server network drive search application solution


We are running a windows 2012 server with X1 Search as our local intranet search application and as our files has grew tremendously for the years and the cost to operate is higher than we anticipated as X1 goes by the documents size. We are looking into switching to a different application that will allow us to search our network drives or performing the similar tasks like X1. Please let us know what is available out there and Your recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Lookeen Enterprise may be worth looking at. I haven't tried it. I've used their Desktop version and am happy with it
I don't understand your question. X1 does search network drives.

WIndows Server has a search role that can be installed Windows Search Service.   This may give you what you want without having to spend any money.
It's worth a shot.

For large enterprise environments, you may want to test first. How much data must be indexed?
Understand what you gave, not clear what you are looking to achieve.
Are you looking to index, and arrange the content?

@yo_bee Windows Search Service is a pretty basic service that will not do us any good. We are looking for third party application that can index over 500 GB of files on our network file sharing drives which in turns can allow users to enter related keyword on their search and be able to get the result within a few seconds.
