    Just noted there are 2 fewer permissions for a user for files in a mounted volume than files in a general folder. No idea why or if that would be significant.

    The drive letter wont show unless it was already mounted when the indexing service was started. Restarting the windows search service, either in services or using the command lines (as admin) in my original post, should make them show in the indexing options.

    Searching in explorer does work but very slow, it takes several minutes if the file is in a sub-directory, it appears to be searching from scratch without using any kind of index.
    I am using veracrypt now, but the issue above is still valid, Windows 10 will only index once the veracrypt drive is mounted. in order to do this a start/stop script helps to do this. this is what i found online and it will automatically include the newly launched veracrypt folder in the search/indexing:

    --- start of wsearch.bat ----
    if not "%1"=="am_admin" (powershell start -verb runas '%0' am_admin & exit /b)

    net stop wsearch
    net start wsearch
    --- end of wsearch.bat---
