Indexing Drivepool Folders

edited August 2011 in DrivePool
How can I index my drive folders? It would be nice to have Windows search be able to connect to the index files. 


  • Looking for an answer to the same question.
    I'm not able to select the DrivePool-Folders in the settings of the index.

    Can't access my machine at the moment. Can you index C:\ServerPool\ServerFolders.Mount or any of its subfolders?
  • Seems when you move a folder, like Pictures, from its original location to the drivepool, it removes it from the locations to be indexed.  You cannot select anything within the ServerPool directory which means you cannot add the share to your libraries on a Windows 7 computer as the pooled directory is not indexed.  This also prevents the items from showing up on the remote web page under Media Library.

    Also, if I move the directory back to its original location a couple things happen.  If the original ServerFolder\Folder Name exists, you get error that it does.  If you delete the folder, you can move the folder from the pool back to its original location, but the folder is marked as hidden.

    Any thoughts on this?   Major blocking point for me not to have the pooled folders indexed.

    WHS 2011's Indexing Options does not allow adding UNC paths, junctions or symbolically linked directories via its GUI. Nor does Windows 7. This is, of course, a pain in the behind.

    I've found a few kludgy workarounds, but frankly nothing as easy as this program which allows you to add UNC paths to your indexed folders. Remember, run it on Windows 7 clients, not on the server.
  • Shane, thanks for the program, that should work fine for my Win7 installations, but doesn't help with the missing items on the remote web browser within the media library.    Or maybe I'm missing something there.
