Windows Server 2012 Indexing Service Windows Search


  • After installing Windows Search on my server there is still now option to make network shares available offline.

    How do i make network shares available offline?

    This is on a Windows Server 2012 with Remote Desktop Service. I want to make each user share available in the Documents library.

  • The default Offline Settings of a shared fonder is "Only the files and programs that users specify are available offline". On client machine, right click the network shared folder you wish to add to a library and select "Always Available Offline". Then it will start to synchronize the network folder. Now you shall be able to add it to a library in Windows 7 or Windows 8.
