In our office we have 6-8 workstations working in a domain with a server running Windows Server 2003. The workstations are running XP pro and we are in the process of upgrading them to Win 7 64-bit. I have already upgraded two stations, but now I am struggling with indexing issues. Everything relevant is stored on network drives.

Is there a way to index the network drives by the server and use the indexing data by the workstations (either XP or Win 7)? Obviously, when someone is looking for something, I want them to be able to find it both on their local machine, but most importantly - on the network drives.

For the Win 7 computers I was advised to make the network drives "available offline" but I don't believe this is the right solution.

Thanks!
