  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. It appears that I have a 2nd user account why?

    It's actually not a user account but if you go to the 'Users' folder, there are 2 folders listed, one for me (Bob), and a 2nd (a 5 character name). The 2nd folder contains many of my files. I did not create the 2nd user folder.
