My search functions are not working properly even though I have re-indexed everything through the indexing tool.
All search functions either through the search button next to the start button or in file explorer, will only find certain things and simply not find others.
For example I'll open a folder "folder for my notes", then there will be many documents one of which would be "holiday notes". I will type in the search box "holiday" or "notes" or anything relevant, even the content of the document. In most cases it says "no item matched your search", even though the damn document is RIGHT THERE IN THE FOLDER WHERE I'M DOING THE SEARCH.
This happens mostly in the dropbox and google drive folders but it also happens in other folders. And it seems random, like it only finds the things that it wants to find.
Can you guys please try a search for a document within a folder, for an item that you know for sure it's there? Especially for Dropbox/Google Drive.
This is so annoying, I have so many documents that I need to find them based on their title or their text content, but without this feature, I will destroy Windows 10 I hate you with passion!!!!!
Please help, Please!!!!
I just made a full copy of my google drive on my desktop, and now the search function (when I search all my C drive or specific folders) is finding the documents within that copied folder. BUT NOT THE ONES IN GOOGLE DRIVE FOLDER. Anyway as I said, it's not a problem with just dropbox/google drive, it's in other folders as well.
Perhaps I will proceed to blow my brains out now, thank you Windows 10.
