I have a secondary drive on my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop. On the secondary drive I have all my Documents and Media. I have pointed all my library locations to the secondary drive. I also attempted to update the Windows Search index to include the updated drive locations. However, when I rebuild the index I get the following error:
The content source <A:\Downloads\> cannot be accessed. Context: Windows Application, SystemIndex Catalog Details: The specified address was excluded from the index. The site path rules may have to be modified to include this address. (HRESULT : 0x80040d07) (0x80040d07)
I can successfully add other folders on my system drive to the index and have them be indexed however I cannot get these directories to work. Is this a result of it being on the A:\ drive? I can't see why, but that's something Microsoft would do.
Other items checked:
- SYSTEM has access to the drive and all the directories I want searched.
- I have the "Allow files on this drive to be indexed..." and the "Allow files in this folder to be indexed..." options set on all the directories I want searched.
