    Search refuses to search in a textfile (.src)

    Hello All,

    I've got anumber of files with the extension .src . I've right-clicked it
    and used "Open With" to bind them with notepad, and that works. I can now
    left-click it to open the file in notepad.

    The problem is that searching the folder for its specific filetype together
    with a certain piece of text in it it does not show any results ...
    Renaming the extension to .txt and than searching does show the correct
    files though.

    My question: What is going on and how do I fix it ?

    Regards,
    Rudy Wieser

    The built in file search to search by file content sucks. It doesn't
    actually search all files even though it's told to search all files
    (wildcard "*.*"), and in hidden and system files via advanced search.

    And as a result of the "filtered" search available in Windows XP (plus
    Microsoft's XP search is coded to specifically not show some "special"
    files), you'll want a better search utility, like:

    FileLocator Lite (aka File Ransack)
    http://www.mythicsoft.com/page.aspx?...lite&page=home

    The fix is to get a better search tool.

    Hello VanguardLH,

    The files are AFAIK not special, nor have any special file-attributes
    attribites set.

    I found a different, easier kind of fix: I copied, in the registry, the
    "PersistentHandler" key from the .txt entry to the new .src one, and all
    seems to be well again.

    Thanks for your suggestion though.

    Regards,
    Rudy Wieser

    I know, I bumped into the infamous "Won't search the 'Program files' folder
    when searching the whole disk" a few months ago. Although I can understand
    the reason for it, its to easy to forget that folder is suppressed and
    asssume a certain file simply does not exist because it does not turn up.
    :-\

    But in my specific case your above remarks do not seem to be aplicable: I
    made the folder and its contents myself. No special attributes, and as far
    as I can tell not a special kind of file.

    I did find a fix though: simply copying, in the registry, some stuff from
    the .txt entry to the .src one and 'search' did start to look into my new
    files too

    Thanks for your remarks,
    Rudy Wieser
