Hi, trying Foxtrot as alternative to spotlight, that cannot search in
windows servers.

Some questions:

- the index is not automaticly updated yet if foxtrot running, why ?
the windows left down shows no actualisation, the search cannot find new
items but in log the index is running

- search in zip possible?

- search in winmail.dat?

- I have some files like: "name.xx.yy.zz.pdf" they are not indexed

- it seems that not all server files are indexed

Thanks for help
Dietke

With FoxTrot Professional, use the "Schedule" tab of the "Manage Indices" window to set a scheduled update, whether FoxTrot is running or not. With FoxTrot Personal, use the "Index" pane of the preferences window, but this requires FoxTrot Personal to be running.

You can search for filenames in zip files, but not for file contents.

FoxTrot uses Spotlight's metadata importers, so if you install a Spotlight importer that handles winmail.dat files, this should work with FoxTrot. You can try with Klammer .

This should work; can you send me such a file so I can test here?

Can you be more specific? Which file types? Can they be indexed if you copy them locally?

testing
