I know where the Outlook OST files are located for users. I also have all files and folders (hidden also) set to display in Windows settings, and extensions are displayed as well. That being said, whenever I do a search for *.ost files using the Windows XP search, why does it not appear? In that folder where the .ost does reside is also a .obi file, which also does not show up when *.obi is searched. My concern is, if I'm the owner/Admin/boss of my computer and have full access, and even if you really don't need to do much with these files (actually finding these files and doing property checks on them can be useful), how much else is being hidden from me... what type of other files won't show in search either, when I KNOW the files are there?? This could cause problems, right?
