Re: windows 10 search problem

I haven't checked in Windows 7 nor have I looked up information about Windows 10, but my understanding of indexing is that it speeds up searches but that searches can be done without indexing being on.  That is the case in XP and, I believe in Windows 7 as well.  As I recall, I have indexing off in my Windows 7 machine and I know I have it off in my XP machines.

Yes, the path ends with \LocalState

But if you tab around the explorer window , do you get a folder named "Indexed"?
