    It might be because of the security settings for that folder. For a folder and its content to be indexed, it must be configured with the System permission. Most folders already have this, but there are some cases where a folder might be missing the System permission.
    This worked for me too!

    Hey guys,
    Was searching for a solution to this exact problem and found you. I've tried the solutions, but unfortunately none of them seem to be working. The folders in question all have the relevant permissions, everything is indexed... The only difference is that the files are on a separate hard drive to my OS - shouldn't be a problem, surely?
    Any other suggestions guys, because I'm really stuck here!!
