  1. Search indexing is indexing my D: drive instead of C:


    dual boot system 10 on C:, 7 on D:
    Search indexing insists on indexing drive D: instead of C: No matter how many times I uncheck indexing locations on D: and choose proper locations on C:, when indexing starts to rebuild it reverts back to D: I though I had solved by temporarily turning of driver letter D:.

    The indexing then happened on C: and things seemed good, so I turned D: drive letter back on and now the problem is back.

    Windows 10 Indexing problems with two drives

    File explorer search results only result with files from my D: drive even though I am searching in my C: drive. I have tried looking for things in the C: drive that should be trivial for the search to find and I have also tried rebuilding the index for my
    system. However, rebuilding the index still results in the same problem of only indexing my D: drive. I have tried to exclude the D: drive from the index list, but it then seems to uncheck the C: drive as well even though I have not unchecked this. Attempting
    to recheck the C: drive results in both the C: and D: drive being checked in the list and only the problem persists. Indexing seems to not be able to recognize that there exists two drives and instead assumes that only the D: drive exists for indexing.

    Trying other solutions like restarting cortana or the searchui.exe have not worked and I believe the problem is with Indexing itself. Is there anything I can do short of removing the D: drive physically from the computer?

  3. Windows 10 - Start Search only returns results from C: drive

    When searching from the start menu only files from the C: drive are returned.

    I have 2 hard drives, C: (SSD) and D: (HDD) and folders on both drives are included in the search index.

    Adding additional folders on the D: drive increases the number of indexed files.

    I have attempted to rebuild the index multiple times but this has not solved the issue.

    I have also performed "src /scannow" with no errors.

    If I search for a file I know exists in an indexed folder in the D: drive no results are returned.

    If I move that file to the C: drive then it will be found.

    Is this expected behavior or are there any steps that can be taken to make search include results from all drives?

    This is on a fresh windows 10 install.
