    Search With two hard drive


    Hi,
    I have two hard drive on my PC, as SSD for the OS and a HDD for all my storage

    I seem to have a problem with search, that it will only find stuff that is stored on the SDD.

    To get it to look for other files on the HD, I have to click search my stuff, and even then it still doesn't work.

    Is there a way to fix this? As most of my stuff is on HD and click search my stuff is a bit annoying.


    Also when I click rebuild index, nothing happens. I get a dialogue box saying it will take a long time, but then it doest say its indexing

    This must not be your case but as this happens to surprisingly many users, I thought to mention it:

    Which drive letter you are using for your data drive? Remnants from the floppy time, the letters A & B are reserved for removable media and Windows does not index them, which is the single most important reason not to use them for hard drives.
