Windows 7 search finds files stored in WHS, but cannot open them RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've got a strange problem where Windows 7 search brings up the right results for photos in WHS, but when I try to upen them they refer to paths on the WHS that don't exist, and therefore the files will not open.  For example the path in the error is \\HPSTORAGE\Photos\Photos\file.jpg

    Notice how there is a sub folder under Photos.  That just doesn't exist, and I can't understand why it is putting it in there.

    I am on Windows 7 clients, I've tried rebuilding the search indexes on both my desktop and laptop, both give the same error.

    WHS is fully patched up to the latest version with PP3.

    I can browse the shares directly and open the files with no issues at all, it is only opening them via search that causes a problem.

    Just to add, I can open videos via search with no problem.
