Regarding the desktop organization, I would say that the best thing you should do is to keep all files in your Documents folder - the data remains in your profile and in case you backup and move data accross computers, the files will be included. If you still wants to keep them on your desktop, i would suggest to look after Fences or similar.

Now, what is reffered to the Search, if you are running WIndows 7, the search functionality uses the indexing tool that makes the process faster. As long as you keep the data in a same location, the index will allow your to easly find your files: note that the search feature uses not just the filename, but also the content of the file.

hope it helps

cheers,
Allan

I moved all of my user folders i.e. documents/music/video/pictures to another drive by right clicking and choosing location and then move.

Do you mean you want to add a description as part of the archive? Or, do you want the solution to read the various fields under the file Properties, Details?

A solution I use is Advanced Disk Catalog https://www.elcomsoft.com/adc.html.

It is basically a database that tracks file locations.
You can track files anywhere, including CDs, DVDs, external drives, .ZIP files
When adding files to the archive, it can read the file properties. You can add your own text, too.
Searching for files is very fast.
You can extract the file info to a CSV, TXT, DBF, MS-SQL, XML format.
A free trial is available. Also, very reasonable price.
