Q: No search results on USB drive search

When searching for files on USB external drive, I get no search results. Even when I search for a file name I know is in the folder I perform the search, I get no results. However, if I copy to my local harddrive, then search does find the file. Is there a setting I need to change to enable search to work on external USB attached drive?

Answer

A:

SOLVED: I unchecked "Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties" and after it updated all searching worked as expected. Seems to be a bug with the indexing.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
