Windows 7 - Vista

What folders are you looking for?

They may not be folders. . . virtualization and Junctions come to mind.

Virtual Store --> Common file and registry virtualization issues in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

Junctions - 1/2-way down page --> - Windows Vista Junction Points

Windows 7 can be a game of "smoke and mirrors" at times.

Regards. . .

Try kind:folders foldername

Where is the folder located? Is it on the boot drive or elsewhere? If elsewhere you need to tell Search to look there. To do this, click the Start orb, then enter search. Click on Change how windows searches and add the other location/drive.
