Windows 7 Search is dead
Posted on 2010-11-13
I have a new Windows 7 64 bit box. I have moved my files and programs - and set up. I point this out because the other Windows 7 box I have can't search either... I have indexed the computer checking to be sure files and contents were included - twice. Yesterday was the Rebuild process. A giant number of things are indexed as of today. I put anything into search, for example type a letter and enter and the results are not found beyond Programs & Control Panel. Can it be that where the log is being saved is an issue? It is saving it to Programs/Windows?
I then installed Google Desktop and that program stopped working after a day. Coincidence?
Search of documents & e-mails is a very big deal to me for ease of business use and regulatory compliance. If Windows search is the wrong way to go - what is the right way?
