  • Hi,


    I suggest you try the following
    as a workaround:

    Add a non-indexed UNC as a library
    ===========================
    1. Create a folder on your hard drive for shares. i.e. c:\share
    2. Create another folder in the above share. i.e. c:\share\music
    2. Link the Library to this folder. 
    3. Delete the folder.
    4. Use the mklink in an elevated command prompt to make a symbolic link. Name the link the same as the folder you created above.  i.e - mklink /d c:\share\music \\server\music
    5. Done. Now you have non-indexed UNC path as a library.
