Ok It worked but now I'm trying to find a way to index all 3 folders because it takes me less time looking on all three folders manually than using this new search. I found a few articles im looking at.

I folled this
1. Create a folder on your hard drive for shares. i.e. c:\share
2. Create another folder in the above share. i.e. c:\share\music
2. Link the Library to this folder.
3. Delete the folder.
4. Use the mklink in an elevated command prompt to make a symbolic link. Name the link the same as the folder you created above.
i.e - mklink /d c:\share\music \\server\music
5. Done. Now you have non-indexed UNC path as a library.

Although I can now see everything in the documents folder in my case I still every time I search for something that I can easily see there it wont find it.
