Confluence - perform search union by search engine

Hi all, 

I'd like to use the confluence search engine to search not only in Confluence but also in file directories on a specific server. I want the result to be the search in Confluence and in these directories. I want a global search. Is that possible ? And how ?

It seems the Confluence search engine would be limited to Confluence (that is not illogic!).

Is there a possibility to link Lucene to additional directories ? or the other way around to configure an external crawler in Confluence on Confluence data and files on separate directories ?

This is not possible with confluence standard functionality.
You probably have the server version. I would look in the apps to see if there was anything.
