  1. Microsoft Photos seems to have stopped indexing new People matches - Why?


    Earlier this year I started using Microsoft Photos and it happily did the indexing and allowed me to merge some people indexes where it wasn't sure that the photo was of the same person. That was in about February 2019. Since then, I have taken many photos and put them in the same OneDrive folder, which is fully synced to my local computer and the new pictures show up in Collection immediately every-time I add new photos, but, under the People tab, it hasn't incremented any counters of photos for people, or added new people to my list of People since February. And, I confirmed this is the case by opening the People records for the top 4 or 5 most frequently occurring people, including myself, and no new pictures have been added to the People since February.


    I've tried opening Photos and leaving it open overnight (more than 24 hours) and for several long periods of time to see if that might trigger new indexing, but it doesn't add the new entries. I don't see anyplace to trigger the indexing algorithm to pickup where it left off.


    Is there something wrong with Photos People indexing after it does the initial indexing?

    And/or, is there a way to get it to restart indexing where it last left off?

    :)

    Not indexing (searching) truecrypt volume


    I can't get windows 10 to search mounted truecrypt volumes, ie, type part of the file name into the "search windows" box and it doesn't bring up a "best match", I just get "no results found".
    I have added the volumes to indexing locations in the indexing options (eg local disk W) and it appears to be indexing it. They are listed in the "included locations" and after a few minutes indexed items goes up from 3,000 to 10,000 but the search box doesn't find any of the files.
    I have tried restarting the services
    net stop wmpnetworksvc
    net stop WSearch
    net start Wsearch
    net start wmpnetworksvc
    And also "rebuild index" but it still doesn't function.

    Any suggestions?

    Missing apps: Store, People, Photos, Games & Camera on upgrading to 10


    Thanks for replying spunk. That's the 'alphabetical' list I was referring to, none of these apps are in that 'All apps' list. Any more suggestions?
