For more detailed searches within an Explorer, you can use the advanced filter pane to design a search with multiple search criteria.
With the advanced Search Pane, you can add multiple criteria to your searches.
For example, you can choose to search a specific location or for a particular content type, such as documents, e-mail messages, or media. You can also add additional filters, including keywords and date ranges. When you've designed a particularly useful search, it's easy to save it as a new Search Folder so later you can instantly repeat that search just by clicking on it.
If you connect external, stand-alone hard drives to your Windows Vista-based PC for storage, backup, or archival purposes, the contents of these drives can also be displayed in your search results. Simply add the hard drives to your search index, and when you create a new Search Folder, the contents of the drives will be included in your results.
You can add external hard drives to your search index so that all of your searches include results from the content stored on these drives.
