    I am having trouble searching for files on my Windows Home Server using Win 7 Clients.

    In Windows explorer, when you enter a name to be searched in the search bar (at the end of the address bar), nothing is shown - it does appear to be searching as the address bar gradually turns green, but never comes to an end.

    It works ok searching on the local drive on the client.

    I don't have folders indexed as there are a lot of files on the server and therefore probably not enough space for them to be cached on the client.

    This is the same on 2 different clients, 1 runs Win 7 Pro and the other Home Premium.

    Power pack 3 is installed on WHS and all client windows updates are done.

    Any ideas?

    I am having the same issue and have not figured it out yet. I am guessing some windows search function is turned off.
