Search doesnt work properly
Hello,

If I go browse some network drive files and put part of filename in upper right corner search box, I dont get all files that contain searched string in file name listed. Some files are listed, some not. Can I somehow tweak this search function so that it will perform correctly and list all affected files?

Thank you very much for your help!

Well you can trash the Windows search and install the best search engine out there called Everything. By the time you have
entered your search item everything has been found. Would take the dog or Merlin a long time.

I'm a little skeptical how that would perform on network drives

Everything does not work on network drives. I want to filter display of network folder with upper right search box, that is present in Windows Vista. I fail to understand, how its possible that this function does not perform correctly - display all files that contain string, typed in search box, in filename. Can I do something about that or maybe there exists another replacement??
