Windows 10 Indexing not working as it should


Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

I am getting really fed up with this Windows 10 ****....I have set up indexing to add the drives I want and it says all done but quick search isn't finding half of the information related to a customer....

I restarted indexing again and once again it is finished....BUT quick search isn't finding all files...

If I go to the drive and the directory...then it finds them....

Any suggestions.....

Well, Windows search sucked (and sucked big) since what? Windows XP? :dubbio:

Depending on what you need, either Everything:

https://www.voidtools.com/

or Swiftsearch:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/swiftsearch/

are more than advised, needed :yes:.

SwiftSearch is great, such a shame that it only works on NTFS formatted drives.
I actually find the search on XP to be pretty good, as long as you switch all the dancing dog rubbish off, but I fully agree that Windows 10 search is absolutely awful!
It's not great even when the drive is indexed, and if it isn't the search is so slow as to be unusable.
I absolutely hate the way it presents the results too!
