+ - What desktop search engine for a shared volume? 1

Submitted by kriston
kriston (7886) writes "Searching data on a shared volume is tedious. If I try to use a Windows desktop search engine on a volume with hundreds of gigabytes the indexing process takes days and the search results are slow and unsatisfying. I'm thinking of an agent that runs on the server that regularly indexes and talks to the desktop machines running the search interface. How do you integrate your desktop search application with your remote file server without forcing each desktop to index the hundred gigabyte volume on its own?"

What desktop search engine for a shared volume?

  • Except for integration with the desktop search interface you are describing Microsoft Search Server. Do you know that a lite version of the enterprise search built into SharePoint is now free? Your users will have to go to a web site to search the shared folders but there would only be one set of indexes and the indexing is done by a service on the server on a schedule you dictate. Google "Microsoft Search Server 2008 Express"
