Q: Can I search non-Windows based file systems or databases using Find It EZ?
Yes. The latest version of Find It EZ uses .NET native database connections and supports searching Microsoft SQL Server 2000, 2005 and 2008 ( all editions ), as well as support for multi-platform DBMS' such as DB2® LUW and MySQL® that run on Linux and other non-Windows operating systems.
When it comes to file-based searches, Find It EZ supports searching through any network share. As such, although native support to search Linux file systems is not built in, you can define and access supported files ( .rpt, .c, .html, .txt, etc. ) using Samba network shares for example.

Q: What is the minimum user security level required for the database modules
The user account must be able to read both the system tables and the objects within the database you are searching. This varies by DBMS. Please contact your DBA or consult your product's documentation. For example, in SQL server your user needs db_datareader access. Without proper permissions your search will either fail or return fewer results than expected.
Q: When I try and scan a Access database I get the message "It does not appear the Microsoft Access Database Engine is installed on your machine" even though Find it EZ shows I have the connector installed
