Windows Search is a feature that has existed in the Windows OS since Windows Vista, although it did exist as freeware called Windows Desktop Search for XP and Server 2003. It replaced the Indexing Service that first arrived as part of the Windows NT4 Option Pack, which was deprecated in Windows 7 and finally removed in Windows 8.

Windows Search builds a full-text index of files on a device. The time required for the initial creation of this index depends on the amount and type of data to be indexed and can take up to several hours. In persistent environments, this does not present a problem, as the creation of the index is a one-time event. However, in non-persistent RDSH or VDI environments like XenApp and XenDesktop, this can present an issue.

FSLogix is opening registration for the next version of Office 365 Container. This release is focused on enabling Windows Search database roaming, to support Outlook's search capability for Citrix XenApp/RDSH environments.

If your users need search on RDSH, or your organization is using Office 365 with virtual desktops, sign up for our beta program to get early access to code, prerelease blog approval, and automatic registration for participation prizes. If this is something that could help your organization, act now, because our last two beta's closed early due to the high response rate.

"FSLogix gives us true cached Exchange mode through its Office 365 Container. Our Outlook launch times went from several minutes to seconds. We also saw a dramatic improvement in the ongoing performance issues when navigating within Outlook such as opening a new email and composing an email, replying to an email, and switching to the calendar. FSLogix removed the roadblock that Cherry Health had reached with its Office 365 migration." -- Tim Riegler, Cherry Health
