    I use mountpoints on my computer to manage my USB-disks.
    When i try a search from within Windows Explorer the search result doesn't
    return any findings located on any of the mounted volumes

    ==> Please fix! :)

    C:\ (System Partition on internal disk)
    D:\ (Partition on computers internal disk)
    D:\Docs (Directory on the partition D:)
    D:\Mountpoints\USB1 (Mounted volume on USB disk 1)
    D:\Mountpoints\USB2 (Mounted volume on USB disk 2)
    D:\Mountpoints\USB2\Docs (Directory containing documents on the mountet
    D:\Mountpoints\USBx (Mounted volume on USB disk 3)

    So, if I want to search for documents (.DOC) and start a search from D:\ the
    result will only return files from the D: - drive itself. If I try a search
    from D:\MOUNTPOINTS\USB2 I do get the .DOC files from that volume
