Jaime,

Sorry, I wish there was a way, but there's just not a way to add a removable SD card to be indexed.

Hello Fszeker, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if using the Win7 Library Tool program may work for you to have it as a library without having to index it instead since it adding a network location to the index is a bit of work to do.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hello Salmanshah, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you just recently excluded the folder, or unchecked it, then you may need to rebuild the index to update it and not have the folder included in search results.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Salmanshah,

Just to make sure that I'm on the same page as you, could you explain what you mean by "startup search" and post a screenshot of it?
