Windows 7: Indexing system not work automatically ...

Indexing system not work automatically ...

HI

I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and I ran, as administrator, the command prompt, and I ran these commands to separate, in the D partition, the new accounts and the public directory:

robocopy C:\Users D:\Users /secfix /copyall

robocopy C:\Users\Public D:\Users\Public /e /secfix /copyall /r:1 /w:0


Later, I changed the values of the ProfilesDirectory and Public entries of this HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFT\WINDOWS NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList registry key:

ProfilesDirectory=D:\Users

Public=D:\Users\Public

I noticed, however, that, enabling the Administrator account or creating new accounts, the automatic indexing system of new accounts (including the Administrator account) and of new public directory structure does not work.
So, what I should do to ensure that also these structures are automatically indexed properly?

THANKS

BYE

Control Panel/all items/indexing options. Click modify and add those places to the index. If you want the contents of files indexed then in Win Explorer, rt. click on the drive and make sure allow contents to be indexed on this drive.

Hope this helps.

This method is manual and I can not apply it because, having to create many accounts, I can not apply this procedure on each new account.

So, I'm looking for a way to automate this process for each new account.

Indexing - if off, will start menu work the same?
