    Can you try opening your D: drive in explorer, then doing the search?

    Hi Dalchina,
    Opened D: in explorer and performed a search using the upper righ search box.

    The search works... Still not works in Start search insted of other C: indicized files

    Hmm, interesting. Thanks for the confirmation. Do you get the impression this hasn't been thoroughly tested/specified? & a Cortana search for 'My Stuff' is pretty useless. And the inherited start menu (from upgrade) loses all subfolders in Win 10 'All Apps'- e.g. all the shortcuts from all the subfolders under my 'Multimedia' folder are presented in a flat list- others are missing.

    My view: 1. Use a start menu replacement. 2. Don't use explorer search- use 3rd party freeware.

    Search in my stuff is a worth of time.

    I done another test, with another w10 ISO on a virtual machine.

    Same issue.... Absurd

    Ok, now here's what I think we've missed. It should work. But you have to set explorer up to search the right thing.

    Thus:
    Open explorer, click Search, 'This PC', then enter your search term for D:.
    Go and make some coffee, phone a friend.... i.e. wait quite a few minutes. Searching... is displayed.
    Hopefully your search result will appear.

    Hi
    this always worked, for me.
    the problem remain in start button.

    There, the problem persist.

    Good. Yep, discard Win 10's start menu. Classic shell (freeware), Aston Menu (commercial).. (the latter's search is much faster than Classic shell's)... etc.

    Besides, it's unusable as a start menu (All apps) for anything other than a trivial number of desktop programs, and unreliable in inheriting a complex start menu folder structure. Cortana is easily broken and trying to serve too many different tasks at the same time. (And I need a start menu that expands my folders etc across the screen, not some small space where you have to scroll up and down)

    got the same problem as you drake. And I got bad news. I don't understand how this game is working so I decided to use a third party tool. You should check out lookeen free. It helps me to bridge the weak performance of the win search

    Thanks for your comment.
    I migrated my files in C: and created a lot of scheduled daily backup...

    This is the only way
