Will Google Desktop Search eventually search my office shared drive?
I require the use of a search tool for a large shared drive at my office. Today I went ahead and downloaded GDS and to my dismay, its only searching my own C drive! Is it just going to gradually index the shared drive or is that feature been eliminated (perhaps so they can sell the professional version or something)….I am a novice computer user so bear in mind this is probably a very simple question but I can’t find the answer…I just asked this question about Copernic too, but I think the answer would likely apply to both.

LOL i dont think so, that they will search server drives or networked drives, becuase they constantly change, and plus itll take ALOT longer to index all those files since all other computers are connected too, and it will search all those drives too.
