    Theirs only one account which is mine
    No files or folders have been moved

    Doesn’t happen when I sign out but when I reboot it does, I just rebooted and indexing locations are empty

    Only ccleaner is installed as 3rd party

    As a test, do you still get search results from the Start Menu and Users locations with them missing in your indexing locations?

    File Explorer will only search in the currently opened location.

    As a test, search from the Start menu for a file in the C:\Users location.

    Personally, I would disable search indexing to always have accurate search results.

    Correct, you will need to keep the Windows Search service enabled for Timeline.

    You could check Don't use the index.... in Search options instead.

    Usually on file explorer when indexing has my locations I write in the search and a list comes down. If u disable indexing does the timeline still work? And will I get results everywhere? Cause now the only way it works is after every reboot I need to while the index

    Timeline will not work with the Search Index disabled.

    I must admit that I don't know why your index locations keep getting cleared after a restart.

    Just to rule out corruption, use the .bat file in Option 3 to reset and rebuild the index to see how it works afterwards.

    If you get any ideas let me know, this is a clean install so shouldn’t be having this

    Is their a registry setting that remembers the folders?
