Windows 7: Indexing network share locations

I tried to index a network share from my filer but it doesn't appear in my search selections. After few researches I figured out there are 2 options:

Option 1:
a) right click on the share
b) select the choice: "Always Available offline"

Option 2:
a) Create a folder on your hard drive for shares.
-> i.e. c:\myshares
b) Create another folder in the above share:
-> c:\myshares\music
c) Link the Library to this folder.
d) Delete the folder.
e) Use the mklink in an elevated command prompt to make a symbolic link.
Name the link the same as the folder you created above.
i.e - mklink /d c:\myshares\music \\myshares\music
f) Done. Now you have non-indexed UNC path as a library.
