Writables volumes change Windows search path

Jump to solution

Hi,

Does anyone know if Writables volumes in version 4.4 change automatically the path of Windows Search to C:\snapvolumestemp\writable\persistent ? because i'm in this case and i want to keep the default path and use FSlogix for keeping the cache index.

Thanks

Hi all,

here is the support answer, may be it will help someone:

This is a normal behavior of writable volumes, AV skips its search index redirection if it finds that an override is already set, whether by DEM, a GPO, the Control Panel Indexing UI, or a direct registry setting. The values checked by AV are
 
Key    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Search
  Value  DataDirectory

  Key    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Search
  Value  DataDirectory

If neither is set, AV sets the second value, e.g., to
  C:\SnapVolumesTemp\writable\persistent\Search\Data\
