Windows 7: Index Locations - Add or Remove

Win7 Pro 64bit SP1
Searching Win7 Solved

Thank you, Thank you!
I have been trying for a week to solve this and it was the little warning on this page re Drive letters A or B that did it. I had assigned a partition as Drive A and no matter what I did in Indexing Options searching did not happen. Reassigned the partition as F and BINGO! It would have been so LOGICAL for Indexing Options to pop up and tell me it was not going to do what I was asking, but no such alert.
