  2. 2nd Drive Files not Showing in Quick search

    Hi all,

    Background: I'm running Windows 10, anniversary update; with two physical drives, each also shown as a logical volume (C and D).

    Issue: When searching from the Start menu, files on my C drive show up, however the ones on D do not.

    Troubleshooting I have done so far:

    • Verify that the 2nd Drive (D) has indexing enabled
    • Verify that the folders on the drive also have indexing enabled
    • Rebuild index
    • The files DO appear when searching the 2nd drive via Windows Explorer, but NOT through the start search
    Is this a known issue, and what steps can I take to resolve this?

  3. Why is Search so SLOW in Windows 10?

    I'd do a few things. First, I'd limit the index to the smallest possible set of folders, in particular your user "shell folders" such as Documents, Pictures, Videos, and OneDrive\GoogleDrive\DropBox (whatever you use). And be sure to give the computer
    plenty of time to finish ingesting all those files into the index. I'd caution against trying to index your entire drive or computer, which is a common pitfall I see users make that entirely defeats the purpose of having an index in the first place. I've
    also written some articles about how I prefer to setup Windows search myself if you're interested.
