    Can you search a network drive with finder in mavericks, or will it still not work like in mountain lion? I have a synology ds413j and it's frustrating to have to always go to the dsm page and use file station to find a file.

    I never use the Finder to find networked drives ever and I am very old Mac user (since 8.6). In OS X I always used the Finder menu item 'Go', 'connect to Server or command button+k (keyboard shortcut). Then just manually putting in Network drive's IP address via SMB or AFP.

    I think OP is asking about Spotlight.

    This might just be an issue of your NAS. I've got a OS X server and Spotlight searches files by name or content on shares just fine. It's very fast and appears like the server itself does the indexing rather than the drive being indexed by client systems.
