Windows 7: Windows search no longer categorizes files

Windows 7 64bit Home Premium
Windows search no longer categorizes files


For some reason Windows search programs and files box no longer categorizes anything into Music/Documents/Videos etc, everything is all listed under Files? Any idea why, the only thing I have differently is I use a SSD as my system drive and a normal drive as my data drive, so I have used the Location tab to relocate My Documents/My Music etc to the data drive. I have ensured libraries etc are all pointing to the right location. Search just lumps absolutely everything under Files now.
