I'm unable to figure out how to index my NAS drive. Is it even possible?

Windows 7 and 8 on various laptops using the net. 

Thanks, Minston

http://windows.micro...q#1TC=windows-7  you can modify the indexing settings to include the NAS drives that you have connected.

the NAS server won't but any mapped drives that you have connected to the NAS's storage volumes would.

It's mapped as Z:, which doesn't show up. There's nothing to select that links to this drive. Is there a way to somehow make a connection so it gets indexed. I'm really stumped here. I usually figure these things out... Thanks for your help dsenette. Any other suggestions?

found some suggestions to make the mapped drive available offline (basically enable offline files), then it will be able to be indexed
