Windows stock search is to say the least, anemic. I use other search programs like the command prompt, Gyula's Navigator or in the past Google's desktop search.
I know of no fix for Microsoft's search.
PS. Let me rephrase that. I know of no SOLID fix for Microsoft's search.
I have two office networks I manage and I am having trouble with one of them (remote office) in the ability to search for files on a server in the main office. The remote office is connected to the main office via a SonicWall VPN appliance. Personnel in the remote office need to do file searches on the main office server but come up with no results on files verified to be there. No error messages reported.
The medium for the search is Windows Explorer on Windows XP SP2. Server OS is Windows server 2003.
Anyone have any thoughts/experience on this issue?
