Windows 7 search files and folders vs Outlook 2007 search

Hello,
Can someone tell me some specifics and pinpoint the differences (or maybe a good website) that would pinpoint the differences between the Windows 7 search and the outlook 2007 search? I know the outlook search searches through email but are there other difference I am overlooking between the two? Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum.
This is like trying to compare chalk and cheese!
Instant Search helps you to quickly find items in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007. The Instant Search pane is always available in all of your Outlook views, such as Mail, Calendar, and Contacts.
The Windows 7 search facility will search everything on your computer depending on the parameters you set in the indexing system.

That's what I thought but I was talking with someone and they said they were basically the same thing. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something. Thanks for helping me keep my sanity.

Outlook's Instant Search uses Windows Search behind the scense. Is that what you wanted to know?
