Simply right-click a folder, click "always available offline" and after sync finishes (or meanwhile) you can add it to the Libraries, no need to tamper with indexing options.
Hope it helps
Hmm...then again, you might not
want to synchronize the whole contents of your network files , otherwise you could just copy them locally
Another workaround is to simply index the network files...To do that, I found there's a patch that M$ has released for Windows Vista that does this and works for Windows 7 too.
However, I even found another easier how-to:
To add a non-indexed UNC as a library to Windows 7 Beta:
1. Create a folder on your hard drive for shares. i.e. c:\share
2. Create another folder in the above share. i.e. c:\share\music
2. Link the Library to this folder.
3. Delete the folder.
4. Use the mklink in an elevated command prompt
to make a symbolic link. Name the link the same as the folder you created above.
i.e - mklink /d c:\share\music \\server\music
5. Done. Now you have non-indexed UNC path as a library.
Hope it helps even better
