Client/Server architecture for indexing NASs

    I would appreciate a component to install on a NAS (eg Synology), which does an update on an own database. This could happen during "off-hours".
    locate32 could then be connected to that database.
    Cheers

    I guess this NAS is Linux/UNIX based? Then there probable will not be such component. The development of Locate32 is stopped (unless there would be some new people to start doing that).

    If it's Windows, you can just run Locate32 on it and but the database file to a directory which is shared. You can also dedicate one of Windows computers to update the index over network.

    I have my NAS mapped to a drive letter and have a locate32 database (searching only the NAS=mapped drive) in the root of the mapped drive. Then whichever of my windows machines I connect with I can use a local locate32 exe search in the database over the network. It is essential to have the same drive letter on all machines for the mapping though.

    I can't promise any NAS components, but maybe someone could be interested to make such. But Locate32 have mapping feature (behind Advanced button in database settings dialog), which allows also different drive letters. You have to just tell that which letter in the local machine corresponds to the letter in the database.
