    Ray you posted this to me a month back.and yes this is what i have.
    Is there a way to search the other folders from one page. So not to have a bunch of website pages
    or links to pages that has a search on them, But one search that will retrieve the info from the other folders

    Thank you.

    What you're describing is basically making a search index for each folder (or type of file), and creating multiple sets of indexes and multiple search pages for each folder.

    That's fine. That's a recommended usage if you want to search a large volume of data, and your user searches will always be divided by these folders/file types, then that's fine, and a much more efficient way of managing your search.

    The best way to do this is to create multiple configuration files. These are the ".zcfg" files which store your Zoom configuration.

    So you create one configuration to index your "food" folder, and specify the output folder accordingly (e.g. "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\search\food\" if you are indexing on an IIS server directly). Save this as "food.zcfg" for example.

    Then have another configuration to index your "torrents" folder, output directory (e.g. "C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\search\torrents\"), save this as "torrents.zcfg" ... and so on.

    Now you can simply load and run the configuration when you want to index that particular search function. Or schedule them all to run one after the other, etc.

    Then you do not need to delete and copy files over and over again.
