Where is the old search function? RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I right click a folder on my Windows Home Server I don't get the search option anymore. Also, the search function in the start menu is removed as well.
    The only way to search is Windows Desktop Search 3.01 which really sucks.

    I tried to uninstall WDS 3.01 but there are like 50 updates installed after WDS and I am not sure if it is safe to remove it.

    Is there a way to get the old search function back?

    If it is not possible, how do you search in a specific folder with WDS 3.01?

  • AFAIK there is no way of getting the old search function back. I 've also stumbled over this about a year ago, tried all possible solutions, but none seemed to work.

    Any folder you want to include in your search should be indexed (set from desktop search options) AFAIK you can not search specific folders
