This is an old problem for me. Am using win7 64bit pro. I add my soliworks parts etc. folders to the windows search index. All my Sw files are stored on a seperate disk(J:). After I change account on the computer to Administrator to update service packs ect and change back to my reqular account (which has the usual administrator rights), the search settings for disk J are unchecked. I have to reindex the again so i can finf Sw filles with windows search. Any one else seen this? Any advice?
