Search Inside of Documents RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to search inside of documents, (e.g., MS Word documents) that are stored on the server? When I perform a search of documents via the explorer window, it is only searching file names for the search string and not inside the contents of the files. My client computers are using Windows 7.  When I search my client computer for things I know that it searches inside the contents of the word documents as well as the file names.  But this does not appear to be the case for the files stored on the server.

    For example, in the VIDEO folder of WHS, I have my videos in their own sub folders and inside each I have a word document with keywords that describe what is on theat particular video file.

    I RDP'd into the server and checked advanced search options and it is set to index file contents and properties.

    Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

  • Figured it out. 

    On the client, in the explorer window, I needed to click on ORGANIZE > FOLDER AND SEARCH OPTIONS > CLICK ON SEARCH TAB > AND MAKE SURE YOU SELECT
