I would like to be able to search but with indexing off, it doesn't work:

I disabled indexing by Explore/C:/properties/General/uncheck Index
Now when I seach it doesn't find anything.

I would also like to know why it seems to run my hard drive so long & frequentlty just to index the file names.
Thank you.
