I would like to index a drive that is on my network, on share in a windows machine. Ideally, would like to be able to combine the index with that on the Ubuntu 12.04 machine, but also would like to use it separately. How do I create an index for a network share? Thanks very much.

Recoll can only index data which is accessible through the normal Linux (Posix) interface. This means that you will need to mount your windows share on your unix system. See for example: http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/how-to-mount-remote-windows-partition-windows-share-under-linux.html

If you want to keep separate indexes for the local and the remote volume, you should follow, for example, the instructions on this page: https://bitbucket.org/medoc/recoll/wiki/MultipleIndexes

There is also a lot of information in the recoll user manual: http://www.lesbonscomptes.com/recoll/usermanual/index.html

Don’t hesitate to come back with more specific questions if you encouter problems.
