Hard Drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently transferred some music files onto my external hard drive. After searching for some files on it I was asked if I wanted to index the drive to make searches quicker so I did this. I have rearranged some of the files into new folders but when I search now I can find what I'm looking for but I cannot open the files or folders and it's telling me that the file/folder may have been moved to a diferent location. Is it possible to un-index the hard drive? Does anyone have any advice on how to sort this problem out? I'd be most grateful.

  • Hi Edgy,

    I Had the same issue 'Itunes could not find your files' blah blah blah i bypassed this by changing the drive letter of my Hard Drive but if you are using this in programs such as Itunes you will need to move all the files back in and is will still say they are lost

    1) Click Start
    2) Right-click My Computer and select Manage
    3) Click Disk Management (Under Storage)

    4) Right-click the drive you want to change

    5) Select Change Drive Letter and Paths…

    6) Click Change.

    7) Select a letter in the drop-down list. 

    8) Click OK.

    Hope This Helps,
