    Yes, take a screen shot of it just like in my example above. It will help us figure out more about the possible problem :)

    It shows exactly the same as in your screengrab, except it only finds about 1000 files.

    Just to give an update, its still not complete solved.

    Repairing the index helps a little bit, but windows search still doesnt find any results sometimes.

    I did a lot of research regarding this, and it seems that it might be caused by classic shell.
    It doesnt help with indexing the files anymore regardless.
