hello
i have a 1 TB drive with all my data (as backup)
i searched for a jpg file, eg philips -  and the file was found
the problem is in the search was not shown its location - or path

so i had to look thru all the possible jpg files to find it

Question : is it possible to set the search so that the path - or location is shown ?

It might take a minute to create a DB. But will blow Windows search away.
