Explorer search is sometimes not listing all files
If I search in "c:\users\" for *.xls I get 2 files listed - both are in deep subfolders.
142.xls in "c:\users\paul\appdata\roaming\temp\temp\temp\temp\temp\temp\temp\"
If I search in "c:\users\paul\" for *.xls I get 100+ files listed, eg:
list.xls in "c:\users\paul\backup\ICT\2010\"
Which leads me to think that the search is not working correctly - a file found in "c:\users\paul\backup\ICT\2010\" must also be in "c:\users\".
Or am I missing something?
At the moment I just cannot trust the search facility - can this be fixed?
