  1. Indexing issue: drive is shown and "available" but never appears in "selected locations"...


    HELP!


    I have 3 SATA drives on my Windows 10, C: duh, all my data on D: and then a Temp drive T: All 3 are shown as options in the "Indexed Locations" box.

    Here is the kicker

    - if I select D: in selected location then T: is shown in the summary

    - if I select T: then T is shown

    - If I select D and T only T is shown.


    I have tried rebuilding the index - twice - no joy

    I tried changing the drive letter from D: to F: - no joy

    I have tried the old "add the channel number" to “HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci\Parameters\Device” - no joy

    D and T used to be in a RAID 1 relationship but I stopped that.. Any ideas how I can index D:? Indexing issue: drive is shown and  "available" but never appears in "selected locations"... 8b0d8832-f9de-4102-9a53-eb035bf5127f?upload=true.jpg

  2. External hard drive indexing information lost

    Hi,

    It would be great if you can provide me with this information for a better understanding.

    1. Did you add the external hard drive to the list of locations to be indexed from the Indexing Options?

    2. By mentioning “it's registered as an indexed location” do you mean that you have already done this?

    If you haven’t added the external hard disk in the Indexing Options, then I would suggest you to follow these instructions and let’s know the result.

    a) Press “windows Logo” + “W” keys on the keyboard to display the “Settings” search bar.

    b) Type “Indexing Options” in that search box and press “Enter” key on the keyboard.

    c) In the “Indexing Options” window, click on “Modify” button.

    d) Under “Change selected locations”, select the external hard disk and add it to the indexing location list.

    e) If you are unable to find the hard disk drive in that list, then click on “Show all locations” and check if the hard disk is shown up there.

    f) Click on “Ok” and then click on “Close”.

    Please let me know, if that helps.

    You may now check if the issue still happens or not. If the issue persists, you may get back to us with more information about the issue.

    Kind Regards:

    Engr. Malik Yasir

    Windows 10 indexing selects wrong drive

    I used a bootable CD containing
    EaseUS
    disk copier to clone the Win8.1 drive to a new HDD.

    At your suggestion I tried changing the drive letter of the 8.1 disk from D: to I:. This did not fix the problem. When I select the C: drive to index it jumps to the I: drive and does not index any of the C: drive.

    Again, I went into Device Manager and disabled to 2nd disk (the original 8.1) and that corrected the problem.

    Not indexing (searching) truecrypt volume

    Oddly I find the drive letter created by Truecrypt does not appear in the list of drives shown in Indexing Options, so I can't add it to be indexed, so you're doing better in that respect.

    I'd suggest you experiment with file explorer: browse to your mounted Truecrypt drive, and see if you can then find a file instantly (i.e. indexed).
