Windows 7: Search function not finding existing files (location is indexed)

25 Dec 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
Search function not finding existing files (location is indexed)


Due to a problem with some programs I reverted my PC by a month by using an older backup-image. The one problem I have at the moment is that the windows data search function does not find (all) existing files even though the locations are indexed. Could this have anything to do with the index having to be rebuilt due to the backup image being deployed?

Anything else I can check/do?
