    we have company data on a server, which is connected to every user using
    network share (like Z:\).
    I find the indexing feature quite cool and helpy, however useless on the
    client's computers, since all data (thousands and thousands) files are on
    the network share.
    How can I turn on the indexing of network share?

    and add your z drive to list of locations to be indexed.
