Is there security trimming on indexed file shares? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I set up a content source in FAST to crawl a network file share.

    It is showing the files on the share in my searches in SharePoint FAST Search Center.

    Then I changed the security on a file in the share, to deny myself read rights on the file.  I can no longer open that particular file using Windows Explorer.

    However, in the FAST Search Center in SharePoint, the file still shows in my results, along with a "blurb" from the contents of the file.  When I click on it, I get a blank browser window, so I cannot open it, but I expected that I would not see it in the search results.

    Shouldn't it have been excluded since I cannot read the file?

    I tried running another full crawl of the share, but it still displays in the results.
