Running XP home, sp2 on Dell workstation. etc. etc. All hardware and software fully functional and fully updated.
Starting to rebuild a website I ran a while ago. Had saved tons of image files (pictures, drawings, graphics, etc.). Now when I go to search for them I have to look in about 25 different folders since I seldom paid attention to where they were saved or collecting. I don't run a photo album of camera photos of family and the actual MyPictures folder is dang near empty.
I run Search and it finds approx. 36,000 (thousand) images and I already tried to just copy the entire search into a specially made folder (where I can FIND it) and it just did not. Sat for two hours thinking to let it do it's thing cuz it would take a while for that many.....but, after 2 hrs. the set-up special folder remained Empty. When I tell it to save the search, all it saves are the search parameters - not the found items.
