I have a WD My Book World (white light) with a single 1TB drive.
I have just got a new computer with Windows 7 Home Premium. We already have several WinXP computers; on each of these each member of the family has a Windows account with their “my documents” mapped to their private folder on the NAS.
In Windows 7 it seems that I can include multiple locations for Documents on a user account so, my idea was to include the private NAS folder as a new location and to make this the default location. I can find the NAS fine, and map the various folders but I cannot include them as “locations”. It says that they are not indexed but I can’t find out how to index them without “making them available offline”. I don’t want to do this as it appears that this will copy the contents to the c: drive (which would defeat the object of the NAS).
Please can someone help. Many thanks (in anticipation). Diane
