    Ok after multiple troubleshooting. I believe it’s related to a file in system volume information in the c:\.... I had ccleaner erase these files... theirs a file called indexervolumeguid... now since I stopped cc from cleaning it it works
    But I don’t wanna get my hopes up so tomorrow I’ll confirm but as of now it’s working

    Incase your curious

    I did research

    IndexerVolumeGuid is a file used by the Windows Search service. The file contains the GUID of the current volume or partition. The search indexer, instead of just relying upon a drive-letter, uses the volume GUID for indexing.

    This was causing me to lose my locations ! Good to know for anyone facing this in the future :) thanks for you help !

    Good find Steven. Thank you for sharing.

    What Is the “System Volume Information” Folder, and Can I Delete It?
