Bump! Is this still not a feature? This conversation started 2 years ago. Not being able to search this mapped drive is a major time suck.

Hi Jesse,

The search on MAC machines is done by spotlight search. 

To use Spotlight search the disc has to be indexed. Only physically connected drives are automatically indexed. If you want to index network drive you have to trigger it. This is totally OS dependent. 

There is this one discussion on the apple forums which might help. Here is a link to the forum: - https://discussions.apple.com/thread/1573997?start=0&

I hope this helps. 

Thanks

Sagar.
