Indexing Volumes Mounted in empty NTFS folders.

Discussion in 'Windows Vista File Management' started by deadonthefloor, Dec 15, 2007.

  1. In order to clean up the mess I had in windows media center, I removed the
    drive letters from my media drives, and mounted them in empty NTFS folders
    inside the "Public Videos" folder.

    However, When I check my "Indexed Locations" in indexing options, I do not
    see these folders when I drill down through the 'Users\Public\Public Videos"
    folder. I have a folder named "Television (A-M)" That has a volume mounted
    with the same name.
    Also in this folder are "Television (M-Z)", Television (Sci-Fi) and Movies".
    Yet the only folder that shows up is the "Sample Videos" folder that is
    there by default.

    Does the Windows Vista Search indexer not know how to index mounted volumes,
    or is there something I'm missing here?
