hi.
I have noticed recently that some text is not being picked up by the search function - what are the best settings (for the search function and perhaps also for the ‘index’) to ensure ALL TEXT IS found by searches?
Thanks GJH

Hi Garrett Mar 14, 2011

Your question is unclear.

Could you please specify, which software are you using?

In case you are using Windows search to find text strings I can only say that it is far not the best method. I would recommend using specialized desktop search software, such as Copernik, Archivarius or alike.

Windows Search is best enough for search in filename
