Windows 7: Windows Search indexing USB sticks

Windows Search indexing USB sticks

I have trouble ejecting my USB memory sticks. Using Unlocker it tells me Windows's search indexer is running on it. At one time I had another HDD as the D drive and I'm thinking Windows's search indexer still thinks D is there so it tries to index it. Any way to clear out what Windows Search indexes?

TIA

Hello Frosty,

Double check in your indexed locations to see if D: is still listed. If so, then you can uncheck D: to remove it from being indexed.

Index Locations - Add or Remove

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Big thumbs up Brink. Google failed me so I came here.

Never thought to look in Control Panel.
