Making Vista Search your PST Files
Vista can index a lot of files and for some reason it doesn’t index the MS Outlook files.. maybe it is as Outlook is already doing the same.. in case you still want to search PST from Vista Search here is what you can do:
- Go to the Control Panel
- Choose "Indexing Options"
- Click on the "Advanced" button
- Click on the "File Types" tab
- Check the checkbox next to "PST" to include it in the search
- Select the bullet next to the option "Index Properties and File Contents"
- Click OK and OK again on the message that appears.
This is especially useful for information workers like me who have large PST files and are forced to archive from time to time … indexing the archives would return the information from these forgotten folders as well :)
