    I have Windows search enabled but under the hard drive properties menu the box that says "Index this drive for faster searching" is not checked. Does this effect windows seach? and should I leave it disabled so that I dont have two indexing programs running at the same time? Thanks in advance.

    I just ran a quick test and went into indexing options(where you select the drive/folders to index) and there was nothing in the field. Then I checked the "Index for faster searching...." and then the drive/folders showed back up on this list. The first image is with the box unchecked and the second is with it checked.
