    This is a support forum, not a complaints department.

    I suggest you directly submit your complaints about hardware to Nokia and software to Microsoft.



    Also it often helps to read reviews when switching platforms to make sure it suits your needs. From what you've said the Lumia 820 clearly doesn't suit you.

    What RSXforever wrote was a kind of review, that can help other people to judge, if Lumia is the right phone for them.

    Indexing Options, the "Exclusion List"

    I don't have that on 11082. Click on modify, then expand C until you see a box that isn't ticked.

    By default C:\Users\<whoever>\Appdata is excluded but you've changed it to something else....

    Yes. I know. Did that. Can't find it ANYWHERE on my C:/ drive

    I recreated your issue by indexing everything on C. It automatically excluded ProgramData and Windows so included them. Now Data is excluded. It is somewhere in ProgramData but I can't find it either. Yet...

    It is C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Search\Data

    It's a hidden system directory (owned by SYSTEM) that doesn't show in indexing options even with "show hidden files" on and "hide protected OS files" off in view settings.

    It makes sense I guess it doesn't try to index itself. Anyway I don't think you can change this (not in 1511 either).

    I manually found the folder, changed all the permissions and it disappeared from my exclusion list!
