    Windows 10 Index locations not all showing up in search

    Hello,

    There might be some settings missing or corrupted.

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to remove the D drive from the indexing and run the indexing troubleshooter.

    Follow these steps to run the troubleshooter:


    • Press “Windows key + X” to click on “Control Panel”.

    • Click on “Troubleshooting” and click on “View all”.

    • Click on “Search and Indexing” to run the troubleshooter.

      Once this is done, restart the computer and check if this helps.

    Method 2:

    Re –build the indexing by adding the D drive and verify the result.

    Hope the information helps. Let us know if you need further assistance. We will be happy to help.

    Thank you.
