Google Desktop Search Issues with Windows Home Server Console RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seems that Google Desktop search won't index if the Windows Home Server Console is in the System Tray.

    Does anyone else have that issue.

  • I gave this a shot on Vista (will try on XP also) and the two seem to coexist and work fine. Keep in mind that when you re-index or index your computer the first time with Google Desktop, that the indexing process occurs when your computer is idle only - so you'll never see immediate results on the indexing status page.

  • I know that you have to be idle for 30 sec's before the indexing begins.... But google desktop woun't index a thing apart from my email which it does even if your system isn't idle for 30 secs.

    So i killed the WHS Connection process and waited 30 Secs and the indexing started... then i started the WHS Connection and nothing... the indexing stop even after my pc was idle for over 2 hours....

    Could be user error... hope not... i will give it a go again tonight to find out!
