windows 8 cannot find files

Recommended Posts

I am not able to use the Windows find. I followed this tutorial to rebuild my index. This did not help.

After that I followed this tutorial. This made it worse. I was able to find some files previously. Now I am not able to find any files.

Cannot say what you want to do.

I can suggest you to simply acknowledge that "modern" Windows built-in search tools are a lost cause  and use a replacement.

Namely (if you only have NTFS volumes) SwiftSearch or Everything:
