comment How to Modify Windows 7 Search to Index Removable Drives
It is not a duplicate. In one case I am trying to "fool" Windows to index removable drives by making those drives appear as fixed. In this case, I am trying to get Windows 7 to search removable drives. I know it case because Windows Search 4 can.

I tried this last week and it did not work. Have you verified this works?

>>Maybe there is some 3rd party software enabling this?<< So far, I haven't found any.

I found the same reference on microsoft.com, which is why I am looking for mounting the removable drive as a fixed drive.

All the article mentions is to turn off the "indexing" attribute for the drive, which disables indexing. Event if this "indexing" attribute is turned on, Windows 7 will still not index the removable drive.

@Darokthar: Tried. Could not find anything to change the type from "removable" to "fixed".
