Is it possible in SharePoint 2010 Foundation to disable search in files content? Only the file attributes/metadata must be shown in search results.


It's not possible if you are looking for out of box solutions but you might find some way outs.

One way that should work is this, create a new Permission Policy level on your Web Application that has only 'View Items' permission. Then, Add edit the User Policy on your Web App and connect your crawl account with this Permission policy only.
