Search Bar Only Searching Boot Drive

Hey guys I just did a fresh instal of Windows 7 ultimate 64bit, when you click the start button the search bar that pops up @ the bottom isn't working right. I noticed it when I was searching for a movie that I had downlaoded. I have 2 internal 1TB hdd's that I use for media storage. It appears that windows is only searching my hdd that has windows installed on it. I've already gone through the indexing trouble shooting but it can't find any errors.


Any ideas?

    Figured it out :)

    I had to add the 2 media drives to my video library and viola search bar works!

    See what we have here is a typical PEBAK error. Problem Exists Between Keyboard And Chair.

    Great to see someone big enough to admit it. Some people will blame everything or anyone but themselves, even when they obviously screwed up.
    I salute you, Sah!
