    Cannot add LOCATIONS to my LIBRARIES due to endless VERIFYING...


    Hello,

    New W10 user here, still learning/busy with the installing processes and procedures.
    Not easy...
    What goes wrong (and went ok in W7) is: attaching various locations to my various libraries: movies, my own videos, mail, my musicbee collection etc.
    If I right-click on the library the properties box opens, with an empty box and by clicking ADD i should be able to add the appropriate folder - or more than one.
    But...
    Everytime I try to do that W10 starts a never-ending search: Verfifying Location > 'Checking to see if this location is indexed'. My most recent add-attempt is now already verifying for 2,5hours.
    I have checked the Windows Search service - and it says it is working/indexing.

    So?
    What is wrong?
    And what is the solution?

    Thanks,
    Wim

    :)
