I'm currently developing an application that have to index document files (.pdf and .doc) which are in NAS storage. After that I want to query them over the application. My customer does not want to upload these files somewhere else.

Can Sql Server or Windows Search Service index these files so I can query them? Or is there any other solution for this type of problem. I think that it should be an easy problem because many people should be doing this.

I'm also interested in this, although my app development has halted lately to other projects. A quick google brought this, and they just released a new version after several years it looks like. – BigHomie Mar 13 '13 at 14:45
