Search doesn't seem to work with network drives

Post by j2associates » Wed Feb 05, 2020 1:27 pm

Hello,

New user, great tool! Does not seem to pick up network shared drives. Do I need to enable something to do that. In Advanced Search, network drives show up in Folders list when I click Browse Button and are brought back (e.g. L:\ or M:\), but no results are shown when I click OK to close the Advanced Search window.

Thanks!

I found the answer in thread Searching network drives: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=8684&p=29359&hilit= ... ive#p29359 I needed to add my network drives in Tools/Options/.

The first time I referenced one it took a while because it had to index them all.
