WDS 3.0 RTW Still won't search network shares?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can someone explain to me why WDS 3.0 RTW still won't index network
    shares?  That's where all my documents are -- what good does it do me
    to index the junk on my local disk?  Boy -- talk about frustrating. :-(
     All through the beta I heard "we'll have that for the final release"
    and now...nope, still no network shares.  Looks like I'll be sticking
    with v2.65.


    From the v3.0 Help:

    Set search locations
    By default, Windows Desktop Search indexes your e-mail files and files
    saved in the My Documents folder. However, you can have Microsoft
    Windows Desktop Search index other locations, including mapped network

    To change which files are indexed:
    In the notification area of the Windows taskbar, right-click the
    indexing icon .
    Click Windows Desktop Search Options, and then click Modify.
    In the Change selected locations section, select the locations that you
    want, and then click OK.


    I mapped a network drive and it's still not showing up -- what am I
