    Hi Brink, Happy New Year.

    " Warning
    You will not be able to include a library in another library, or include the Computer folder in a library.
    You can only include up to 50 folders in one library parent folder.
    Included folders from external hard drives or USB flash drives are only accessible in the library when the device is connected.
    To be able to search in libraries, the Windows Search service needs to be Started and set to Automatic. Libraries require it's included folders to also be added to the index to be tracked properly even though they will still open properly."

    In the above warning, item #2 concerning number of included folders (50), does that include "child folder" under the 50 included folder limit?
    Hello PreyMantas, and Happy New Year to you as well.

    It doesn't mention this, but I would assume the limit only applies to parent folders and not child folders included in them.

    Thanks, Brink. Why doesn't it surprise me that MS isn't "thorough". :)

    I'll keep an eye on it. I reset all the folder back to defaults, but I haven't done the RegHack to set all the Allfolders to not monitor yet. It's amazing just how much MS misses when they are doing final quality control of their code. They leave that ut to US now! I want to get paid for my work, dang it! :Q

    Did you ever just sit and ponder how many TRILLIONS worth of productivity have been lost because of MS's lack of quality (or should I say incompetence)...? Have a great year!
