I got a My Book Live NAS 3GB. I’m trying to add a Share to my Windows 7 libraries, but I get this error.
Windows 7 Libaries: This network location can’t be included because it is not indexed
I cannot add the My Book Live share to my Windows 7 libraries. If this is NOT possible, the drive is kind of worthless to me, and I’m sure to many people.
Does anyone has a solution? (which doesn’t include making the folder avaialble 0ff-line)
Just so you know, _ by default _, Windows 7 does not allow you to include network drives or folders in a library. This is because folders must be indexed first in order to be added to a library, and network drives cannot be indexed unless they are synchronized, which means to manually copy the data to C:\Users<font color=“red”>(User-Name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries or to use the mklink command on CMD with admin rights (Right-click on command prompt> run as administrator).
Don’t blame the MBL for a well-known Windows 7 restriction, the NAS is not magical and it won’t do what your computer doesn’t natively allow it to do.
