Indexing Service not indexing copied files

    I am running Indexing Service on W2K3 and it seems that files that are copied
    to a directory that I am indexing are not included in the index until one of
    the following happens:
    1) The file is opened and saved (even without changes).
    2) The index service is stopped, the catalog gets emptied, and the index
    service is started again.

    So it appears that unless the file modification time gets updated while it
    is in the indexed directory, the file never gets indexed.

    Does anyone know of way around this or does anyone have any knowledge of
    this behavior?
