I am searching a hard drive using windows explorer. I know what I seek exists on the hard drive. In addition, the word entered covers more than what I seek, as there are other items with that word in the title.
Search results take forever and there are none. None. No matter what search term I enter, the results are nil.
If I search a drive other than C:, I get results. Searching C: gets nothing. I searched the 'net for an answer, but could not find one. Using the "troubleshooter" found no problem.
If I find the item in the programs file and open the file location from there, it brings me to "app data" followed by a few others and "roaming". What is that?
Finally, I cannot gain access to "documents and settings". There is a padlock icon. If I attempt to change permissions, I am denied.
What assistance can you offer?
