I agree. Am I doing something wrong or does it not show folder name
results in a search? I have a folder on my old XP desktop with my
daughter's name on it and it never shows up in any search I perform. I have
to go to it by the old-fashioned way in explore. :-( It searches inside
documents and everything under the sun but doesn't come up with the folder
in any search.

I DID add the Documents & Settings folder to the seach index but this does
no good.

Possibly I'm just clueless.

This search engine looks good if I could ever figure out how to use it.
When I used Google desktop search in XP, it seemed to turn up everything.

One tip, don't use explorer to seach.... use whatever they call the old
startmenu now and search. then choose your option in the "show results for"
(if you click on the >> it'll bring up more options like folder etc), then
in the option "in" (seems to default to index) click on the small black down
arrow and choose all drives and devices.

You can also turn on that extra UI in a normal Explorer window by clicking
the down arrow on the right side of the search box and selecting "Search
Pane" from the menu.
