Ok using win 8.1 64 bit and a 2 T ext hard drive.
When I do a search on the C drive or the Ext Drive for a folder title or a file title sometimes its found and others times I get " Not " found. So whats with that and what am I missed so search can find things;
I use the search thingy on win 8 that's above the icons in the upper right and the options under
" everywhere " don t help .
On the Ext hard drive their are a bunch of very confusing options in the header ; name and size and dates and locations etc what should those be set at so folder names and file names that are in a folder can be found. And how do I speed up searchs in the external hard drive they are so bloody slow and are slower every time I use it so how do I speed that up ?
If for example in the C drive and or The External ; a folder is called saved letters and in that folder a file is called Family one; can t I use saved and then family or do I need the full title " saved letters " then " Family one " and are caps / all caps needed or it does matter ?
Lastly I am on the C drive and the external is hooked up using usb 3.0 and its listed on My Pc.
How do I find something that's on the external drive when I use the search on drive C ; shouldn't that work and how does that get fixed ?
Oh ops I keep getting a pop up about safely removing add ons when I plug in the external drive into usb I just plug in and then pull out only way I know of so whats " safely " about ?
Hope that makes sense think it does - Thanks
