Folders do not display in Indexing Options / Indexing Locations

    I have been an enthusiast to desktop search technologies so I really liked
    Windows Desktop Search available for XP. But I have a problem with the search
    in Vista.

    I have some folders created in the root of my C: drive storing relevant
    business content for which indexing was important for me. However I cannot
    add these folders to the indexed locations since whenever I open Indexing
    Options in Control Panel and click Modify and Show all locations, these
    folders are just not showing up under the node of my C: drive.

    Simply to put I cannot get Vista index my C:\Work folder since there's no
    Work folder displayed under my hard drive's node. The folder was created by
    the same account that is used to try to get it indexed and is not a shared

    The problem occurs with every folder I have created in C:, only the folders
    created by Vista and by the hardware vendor are shown.

    How to remedy this very bad problem, guys?
