  • Question

  • Im looking for the checkbox "search hidden and systemfolders" (like the searchfunktion in XP).
    example: When i search in drive c:\ for *.inf there is no search result. The searchfunktion doesen´t find the inf files lokated in the windowsfolder.

    How ist the checkbox "search hidden and systemfolders"???

    That setting is for viewing hidden- and systemfolders in  explorer. i´ve already selected this options. please check my example. on drive c: search for *.inf. the searchresult will not include any inf files that are located in C:\windows. im looking for the options in the searchfunction.
    (Windows XP: Start -Search -
    extended options; there are two checkboxes " search in systemfolders" and "search for hidden files".
