Windows 7: Windows 7 and Searching File Contents

Windows 7 and Searching File Contents

Hey guys, I'm having an issue with searching file contents. We have a folder set up for emails to be placed for archiving. The folder is shared, and located in a server 2003 machine.

From my windows 7 machine, searching "reed" generates no results, but searching "Reed" will correctly find the emails containing the word.

I can't work out why my searches are suddenly case sensitive! Any help is greatly appreciated.

Would really appreciate some help with thise one. My google searches are coming up empty - most results are trying to work out how to ensure case sensitivity. I've checked the ways to turn it on, and it definitely is not.
