Search a specific folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way to configure the basic SharePoint 2010 search to include an option to search a specific folder?  We have a very large list (30,000 documents) and our users need to search specific folders.

    Thanks

  • You have a number of options:

    1. Create a content source that just searches that particular folder
    2. Create a search scope that matches the URL path to that specific folder

    Either way you will create a scope and assign it so that users will only get results back to the folder.
    Cheers
