Use this dialog box to configure search areas in the DataFinder. Search areas are the folders in which the DataFinder executes a search. You can create and delete your own search areas. You also can define and delete areas that the DataFinder excludes from the search. A plus sign in front of a search area indicates that the search area contains folders that the DataFinder excludes from the search.

You assign an alias name to a search area. DIAdem displays the search area under this name in the browser. If you do not enter an alias name for the search area, the DataFinder automatically assigns the path of the search area as the alias name.

You can change the order of the search areas. The DataFinder then indexes the search areas in the specified order.
