Searching Servers and NAS Storage Devices

VX Search allows one to search files in all network shares of one or more servers or NAS storage devices on the network. In order to search files in one or more servers, open the search dialog, press the 'Add' button located on the right side of the list of search locations, select the 'Search Servers or NAS Devices' mode and enter one or more host names or IP addresses separated by the semicolon (;) character.

VX Search will scan the network and show a list of network shares detected in the specified servers and NAS storage devices allowing one to select one or more network shares that should be processed. In order to be able to use this feature, the user needs to have permissions to access network shares.

The network shares scanning operation may be performed multiple times for different servers and NAS storage devices and an unlimited number of network shares from different servers may be added to the file search operation.
