Hope Mrs BF wasn't too put out.

BF's conjugal performance aside - I'm 99% sure this is software related - the drive is fine - all the data on it perfect and I can select any file at random from it and it'll play - I just can't search the contents via Windows Explorer...

Re: PC help req'd - Explorer Search function not working...

The new Windows search function rarely works for me. Thankfully they've left in the option to switch back to that little dog/search companion. That wee fella never lets me down.

Your best advice on how to fix it is a sarcasm-laden jibe made towards me.  I'm not Einstein (although I may be eccentric), but I know which advice I'd rather go with given the odds. smile

I've just read Loopy's massive response. Talk about completely missing the mark. lol

1 Terabyte of music is rather a lot.

Despite resistance, I've been forced onto Windows 7 at work. Terrible programme imho. Having used XP previously it's hard to believe that years of 'development' could lead to this. Even doing a simple file search on a folder takes ages longer. Gatesy's well and truly overcooked this beast.

So, to summarise, move to Mac as soon as possible.

Windows 7 is a million miles ahead of XP, lad. Search on my machine takes seconds.

7 is okay. After XP, a short discovering needed, but no prob with that at all.

I could've fucking sworn he said the drive was dead. If not, then even I will admit to having an absolute reg on this one!
