    ...or perhaps I need to adjust my settings.

    The problem is this-- on one of our work servers, I frequently need to search for reports by typing the report filename into the top-right search field. I direct the search to the correct folder (project names) on the correct server. There are anywhere from 50-80 subfolders (each project name) in the project names subfolder, hence the need for the search. The trouble is, Windows 7 is consistently unable to locate the file I need based on my entering the filename (i.e, DellPET110vsHPCdc5700.pdf) into the search field.

    After a colleague at work was able to find the correct sub folder (Yancy), I repeated my search for DellPET110vsHPCdc5700.pdf in the Yancy subfolder within the project names folder. Windows 7 was able to find the document after a quick search.

    This confirms/suggests to me that Windows 7 search is not able to locate the files I need when looking in the main subfolder (project names) on the server, but only able to find the files when I locate the specific subfolder they are in (i.e., project names>Yancy {or whatever other name{). This of course renders the search function useless to me, because the whole point of the search is that I don't know the specific subfolder the file is located in to begin with.

    Anyone?

    I believe there must be some settings problems. I have tried some test searches, searching for a file several layers deep in my documents while searching from my C drive and the specific file I was looking for showed up pretty quickly, much quicker and easier than when I had XP. I then performed a similar test from my laptop across my home network to my wife's laptop and searched for a file within her documents from the top level PC name and found the file in quick order, with said file being displayed on my laptop, through our wireless router.
