Search Server 2010 Express and local drives RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded SharePoint Foundation 2010 with Search Server Express 2010. When I crawl drive C of the Search Server it reports 37,381 successes, 960 warnings, and 121 errors.

    Most of the errors are trying to crawl

          <machine name>\c$\user 


           <machine name>\c$\documents and settings

    How can I exclude directories from the crawl?

  • Typically,you probably wouldn't want to crawl drive C at all.  If for some reason you need to, you can create a crawl rule in Search Administration to prevent certain directories from being crawled.
