a very well organist file sharing and directory data storage system which has
grown over many years as business and data has increased. Finding documents has
become a timely and sometimes difficult task. To resolve this issue, we need an indexed searching system that allows users to find documents and

MS Search Server would be a good choice for you.

No built-in WebDAV support, but if you can write code around it then you could use your code in a plugin and make use that way.
