Hi. Until last week, I had Windows 7 and a BIOS based system. I now have Windows 10 and a UEFI based system. All hardware is the same, though: an SSD for the OS and two HDDs for storage – a 4TB (E drive) and a 1TB (F drive). The 4TB is GPT and the 1TB is MBR.
The problem I have since moving to Windows 10 is that I cannot add the E drive to Indexing Options for search purposes. When I click Modify/Show all locations, the E drive is nowhere to be seen. I've checked the following:
The E drive is ticked for 'Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed...'
The E drive Owner and Permissions is the same as the F drive.
The hidden folder 'System Volume Information' on both drives is empty.
In the Registry, "Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows Search" shows that WSearch has the 'Allow' box ticked for both 'Full Control' and 'Read'.
The 4TB HDD is working fine – I spent 12 hours running “chkdsk E: /f /r /x” on it.
Can anyone suggest cause and cure for this problem? If so, you have my sincere thanks.
