WDS 3.0 Beta 2 doesn't index NTFS junction points RRS feed

  • Question

  • They don't even show up in the Indexed Locations Dialog in Options, so they can't be added. WDS 2.6 didn't have this problem.

  • Hello migue333,

    WDS 3.0 beta 2 does not currently have the ability to index network drives.  We are currently working to add that functionality.  In the meantime, we are suggesting that customers in corporate environments continue to use WDS 2.6.5.

    I will be sure to post when we have added the functionality to 3.0.

  • Junctions are NOT network related at all... they are merely reparse-points for the filesystem.  It is possible for them to be used to point at network shares, but also can be used to join multiple drives into a single file system.
