    Hi, have anybody information about the minimum NTFS rights on a Windows share?

    User need have "read only" to protect for manipulations. Thanks!

    Details:

    Host: Windows 7

    File Version: DocFetcher 1.1 beta6

    Hi,

    The indexed documents need to be at least read-only for the user account from
    which the DocFetcher program instance is launched, since these files might
    need to be read out for display in the preview pane.

    If you want to put the DocFetcher program folder on the Windows share, it
    might get more complicated, since creating/updating/removing indexes requires
    write permissions. I've never tried this (and I'm not using Windows anyway),
    so I guess you'll have to try it out.

    Best regards

    q:-) <= Quang

    Thanks for your ansver Quang!

    Hmm.. the indexed documents are on a networkshare. (The application installed
    on a Client)

    It only runs if the networkshare are writable - read only don´t works. (can't
    indexed)

    The application need write permitions on the indexed Folder!? I can't protect
    the indexed files for unwanted manipulation.

    It's strange that you can't index your files if they're read-only, since
    DocFetcher shouldn't modify any of them during indexing - only the folder
    containing DocFetcher's index needs to be writable. Are you sure you've set
    the file permissions correctly?

    Assuming that you did set the permissions correctly, what kind of problems
    and/or error messages do you see when you try to index the files?
