Windows 7 Not Finding Files On USB Hard Drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've gone to the Control Panel, added the USB 1Tb hard drive to the list of things to index and yet it still does not find files. I'm only interested in finding them by file name. I can even SEE the files in a folder I'm looking at but typing them into the search field does not find them. Some it does, some it doesn't.

    I can go into a folder and it finds some files but not others. I type in "lifted" and it finds nothing even though several files have the word "lifted" in their name.

    This is, to me, absolutely astounding that such a simple thing doesn't work. Any ideas why?
