Odd Windows Search behavior in WHS RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I access my WHS PP3 mainly from a Win7 PC.  Windows Search is enabled on WHS, and I have not done anything tricky to let Win7 index the WHS's shares, so I assume search results are provided by the search index on WHS.

    I'm finding that the index on WHS doesn't update very often. For example, if I change file names from the search results window on Win7, and redo the search within a short time, the old file names will still show up, though the files are inaccessible due to the name change.

    Another oddity is that sometimes multiple files with the same name but different suffixes will only return one result if I searched by name.  To illustrate, if I had filename1.jpg filename1.avi, filename2.jpg, filename2.avi etc., and I search for filename , only filename1.jpg shows up. This doesn't happen with regularity but happens often enough to be annoying.

    Just throwing this out here to see if anyone else observed similar behavior.
