Hi Mike,toggle quoted message Show quoted text
you've told me off list that the path of the folder that you're searching is something like:
As this folder is on your D drive, then by default it's probably not indexed.
When deciding what folders you want to include in indexing, it's worth keeping in mind that it's not a good idea just to index everything. Indexing stuff that you're not going to search just adds to the size of the index, and might slow down searching.
Say, for example, the you wanted to index the folder D:\mikem, and all its subfolders.
1. Open the start menu and type indexing options. Indexing options will probably be the first result, and so you can just press Enter. The indexing option dialog opens.
2. Tab to the modify button and press it. The Indexed locations dialog opens.
3. The first control in this dialog is a change selected locations tree view. In this tree view, each of the items is a check box. If an item is checked, then it is indexed.
4. Arrow down to the D drive, and press right arrow to open it. The folders which it contains are now listed below it.
5. Down arrow to the folder mikem, and press spacebar to check it.
6. Tab to the OK button, and press it. You are returned to the Indexing options dialog.
7. Tab to the Close button, and press it.
Note that depending on the size of the folder you have added to the indexing, you may have to wait a while before the indexing is complete, and give you the search results that you expect.
