Network Drive not indexing

Postby gdurkee » Sat Oct 31, 2015 10:17 am

Hi: I'm evaluating X1 prior to possibly switching from Copernic (which keeps wiping the index at random time!). I've successfully set it up to index the C drive, but it's not indexing my NAS drive even though I've mapped it as \\share\folders. I've also mapped it as a drive letter (which I've read doesn't work) but neither seem to index the drive.

Since this is critical to my switching, any help would be appreciated.

any update on this?

I sure would be nice if X1 staff reviewed the forum to provide help. there seems to be quite a bit of questions that have no replies.

can you check the X1 logs for any errors that would hint at why the network share is not being indexed?

The logs by default are located in C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\X1 Search\logs, and the one that will contain the related info is X1ServiceHost.log.
