    After windows 10 update search in outlook 2013 never completes


    A few days ago Microsoft forced a major Windows 10 features update on my computer and some things now do not work as they did before. I noticed that when I tried to do a search for anything on some outlook mail boxes it would never finish. On some mail boxes it seems to work, with "current Mailbox" and "Subfolders" while on others it does not. Where it worked before on "All Outlook Items" nothing now ever completes.

    I tried working with Microsoft support and their fix was to reload Office 2013 which did not change anything. I rebuilt the Index for Microsoft Search and made sure the Outlook folders wee included and am still having issues.

    Advice would be greatly appreciated!

    :)

    Windows 10 "Search Windows" not searching Outlook 2013 content

    I have recently upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. Within Windows 7 I could search ALL content from a single search option, it would search folder content and Outlook 2013 content, happy days After windows 10 update search in outlook 2013 never completes :) What I am finding within Windows 10 is that if I want
    to search Outlook 2013 content, I have to explicitly use Outlook to search for the content. If I want to search for file content, then I have to use the "Windows Search" facility.

    Is there anyway to get "Windows Search" to also search and return results from Outlook 2013 content? Before anybody asks, yes Indexing is complete. If I check the search options within Outlook 2013 I can see within the Indexing Options that the Outlook
    content is selected. Curiously though, when I check the same Indexing Options from Control Panel I don't see Outlook listed! Could this be the reason, or is there a design reason to split the search facility?

    Thanks

    why does Microsoft not publish a list of much used but incompatibel programs for windows 10?

    Look here:
    Autoroute 2013 System Requirements
    .

    Windows 10 is not listed, however the program works on Windows 8, which means it will probably work on Windows 10 as well. You might have to install in Compatibility Mode. Make sure to install the most recent version of the software.

    Outlook 2007 or 2010 is required to use Send To features, but they'll probably work just as well with Outlook 2013 and 2016.

    I searched with this search term:
    AutoRoute 2013 software system requirements
    .

    After windows 10 update search in outlook 2013 never completes

    Just wondering- have you tried a couple of basic disk related checks?

    Try downloading Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot of its GUI for the relevant disk

    If ok, run e.g.
    chkdsk <drive> /scan
    and report the result.

    Also note
    Repair Outlook Data Files (.pst and .ost) - Outlook

    I've tried all suggestions and results are the same. Scanpst said it repaired errors but I'm not sure what they are/were.
    I'm using new WD SSD 500gb and they test good per the attached document.

    Other thoughts?

    I've run into what I think is this same issue, although I'm not completely certain that it coincides with a Windows 10 update. I set up a user on a new Windows 10 Pro box, with Outlook 2013, and he found he was unable to search his PST files. We went through the whole standard list of troubleshooting search indexing options, including rebuilding the entire search index, without success. I also copied his PSTs to another system, and ran into the same issue, which eliminates disk errors, registry junk, and things unique to his machine. What finally worked for me were these steps:

    1.In Outlook, go to Options -> Search -> indexing options -> Modify
    2. Uncheck "outlook" and the folder under your user where your PST files are located
    3. Close Outlook
    4. Give it a few minutes for processes to exit
    5. Restart Outlook
    6. Go to Options -> Search -> indexing options -> Modify
    7. Check the items you unchecked in step 2
    8. Select something in your PST file and click search to bring up the search window
    9. Select Advanced Find from the Search Tools pulldown
    10. Perform your search.

    After this I was able to search again using the quick search option at the top of the message list pane.

    I suspect this toggled some internal switch in Outlook which the index rebuild didn't touch.

    It seems that the update stopped my indexing of everything. When I restored what I thought was the right things it still didn't work. I had to individually set my PST files in the index list as well as the drive where they were stored. Seems to work OK now.

    Thanks for the advice and help!
