Elasticsearch using shared folders

Hi All,

I am new to ElasticSearch, I am currently trying to see how I can use Elasticsearch to meet one of my requirements.

The simple requirement is "How to implement search on a shared folder having unstructured data".

This shared folder keeps getting updated with latest information.

Also I am not interested to store the dump of my data in my elastic search server. Index data also should be stored directly on the shared folder.

I am not looking for LogStash as the data is mostly text files and documents.

Please advise.
