Indexing Results Only Return Inbox and Sent Items

    Hello Group,

    When I search for email using the Start menu or the Search window, only
    emails in the Inbox and Sent Items folders are returned. My setup is Vista
    SP1 with Outlook 2007 SP1. Running the exact same search in Outlook itself,
    returns all results, from all folders, instantly.

    So far, I've rebuilt and reset my index, made sure that both my PST files
    are selected for indexing, and that the option to "include messages from the
    Deleted Items folder in each data file" is checked.

    When I move any email from the Deleted Items folder back to the Inbox, it
    shows up in the search results. This leads me to believe that this behavior
    is by design. If so, is there anyway to force Vista to return results from
    the Deleted Items folder (where all my old email resides?).

    Thanks!

    Ahmed

    Solved:

    In short, Control Panel -> Folder Options -> View tab -> Check "View Hidden
    Files and Folders"
