Windows Search 4.0

I have been using Windows Search 4.0 preview on my Vista SP1 x64 laptop for a few days now, and I must say I am extremely impressed with its performance, that with the newest update to Communicator 2007 has seen a significant improvement in system performance. Check out the improvements compared to search in Vista:

  • With Windows Search 4.0, the Windows Search Team has fixed most of the reported bugs causing a majority of distractions users have seen since Windows Vista RTM – many of those bugs were reported by you.
  • Great improvements have been made with regards to performance. Even now as Preview, Windows Search 4.0 has query response time about 33%faster than search queries in Windows Vista RTM.
  • The Windows Search Team has extended Remote Index Discovery for PC-to-PC search to work on every supported version of Windows. This makes finding information on other PCs running Windows Search 4.0 quick and less resource-consuming. Now Windows Search can find information shared on a remote PC by accessing an index on that PC – and you will open files only when relevant to your search. This will also work if the user’s profile is redirected.
  • The Windows Search Team has implemented Rollback Recovery where your search index will roll back to the last known good state (this is good in handling disc write errors). If an error occurs, your index isn’t rebuilt from scratch; only the newly changed files are added to the index, making recovery from system errors not as disruptive to the machine or the user

Windows Search 4.0 also includes the following improvements:

1. Support for the Encrypting File System (EFS)
2. Reduced affect on Microsoft Exchange when you index e-mail in online mode, and there is no local cache (.ost)
3. Support for indexing online delegate mailboxes
4. Improved indexing performance
5. Faster previewer updates for Windows XP
6. Per-user Group Policy settings
7. Windows software updates for Watson errors
8. Enterprise Group Policy settings
