    work area search tool needed

    We have disabled the built in windows search feature.
    We want to be able to offer staff a search tool that will let them search the files on the home area drive mapping only

    In our case Z:

    I don't want them searching outside of there work areas.
    Any one know of any think that would do the job?

    Server-based search or desktop?

    Are their work areas secured using permissions or is it open access and you just want to restrict the search?

    I'm after a desktop search tool.
    Their work areas are secured with permissions. Only admins and the user can have access.

    Can I ask why you've disabled the windows search tool?

    it should only search areas they have access to?
