I have found that when I am browsing in a folder in Windows Explorer, looking for a file, if I use the search box in the top right to search for words that occur in the file name, it does not find files that I know are in that folder. If I enter the same search term in the Start Menu search box, it finds them. If anybody knows the solution to that then it would be helpful.
However, I believe that Windows Search cannot index network drives, so I could also do with a piece of freeware that would also provide good file searching functionality, including being able to search mapped network drives.
Even though you can't index network drives in Windows 7, I presume that you ought to be able to search them - is that right?
