Windows 7: Question about Windows 7 Backup.

Question about Windows 7 Backup.

I am getting another hard drive for windows backup to backup folders important to me, such as college work.

When the backup is done, does the windows search function detect these files on the other drive? For example, I could have a file named "College paper". I usually hit the bottom left button and type this name in the search and windows shows it. I do not want two files to show, the regular one on my main drive and the backed up one on the other drive.

Does windows show both the regular file and backed up file? Is so, could I stop windows from showing both?

Hello Shinryus,

Nope. The files in a Windows Backup will not show up search results by default.
