    Search function only searches C: drive

    Hi Babu,

    Thanks for the reply nonetheless. I ran the commands like you suggested and both commands completed successfully but it detected to corruption and the search function still does not find anything that isn't on the C: drive.

    Hi Kaali,

    Due to the high volume of enquiries related to Windows 10, we could not respond to you on time.
    You may run the

    Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) tool and check if that helps. This tool will try to fix the corrupt operating system files.


    • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, on the start screen type
      cmd, right-click Command Prompt, and then click
      Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

      Type the following commands. Press Enter after each command.

    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    • Close the command prompt then check if it fixes the issue.
    Hope this helps.

    Star Menu only searches C

    Hi, have you tried using these options?

    Applying the documents filter focuses Cortana on documents, rather than web or apps. When I click that option, the result changes.

    If you want rational search as fast as you can type across ALL your files folders disks... try
    Ultrasearch
    Locate32
    Everything

    Free. GUI options to specify your search by date, size, location, extension etc etc.
