Yes I found that one, but it should still show up in the search. Not doing so for some reason.

perhaps you have to open it from there at least once first...have you tried that?

No go. Just went and created the disk via the CP. When it was done I tried the search and still nothing.

hmm...I bet users must have run something else before it can appear in search..

anyway, the file's location is in C:\Windows\System32\recdisc.exe

If I type recdisc.exe, it comes right up. Very odd. Thanks.

I'm just restoring to my harddrive, probably a dumb move so I will probably eventually make disks, before I get too many documents and stuff all over the place.

I haven't run anything or even knew it was in the backup and restore center or messed with any indexing and mine showed up.

Hello all.

I just typed Gary's command into "Run" and got this; I haven't done anything with it yet.

Credit where due. limneos gave the file name. If I type it into the search bar and hit enter, I get the same window. Just odd that the 'system' search shows nothing for me but does for the rest of you. The gnomes are on strike I guess.
