What is a SEARCHCONNECTOR-MS file?
Saved search file created by Microsoft Windows; contains connection information for a remote location; used for connecting to Web services and remote storage locations; allows remote files to be browsed using the Windows Explorer user interface.
Search Connectors are installed on the user computer using an OpenSearch Description .OSDX file, which contains information about the remote service. After the OSDX file is opened, the SEARCHCONNECTOR-MS file is installed to the [user]\Searches\ directory and appears as a folder with a magnifying glass graphic. When you open the file, Windows opens an Explorer window with the contents of the remote location.
NOTE: Search Connector files do not display the ".searchconnector-ms" extension.
