I have found that the search feature of Windows does not always work.  For example, I put in *.obj as my search criteria and searched my development directory.  The utility found no files even though there were a number of OBJ files in this tree.

I did a chkdsk /f on the drive.  This took quite a long time to complete (at reboot time) but there was no change.  I ran RegVac which found no errors.

Any suggestions?
A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

   Are the OBJ files hidden or system files?  I don't think Search will find hidden files.

The OBJ files are neither hidden not system files.  Since posting my message, I have been doing more digging as to the state of my system.  I think that I may have some disk problems.  When doing a chkdsk c: /v I get the message
      Deleting an index entry from index $0 of file 16735
repeated several times and then the message
      An unspecified error occurred.

Using chkdsk c: /f does not fix the error so I am thinking I may have to  reformat my hard disk.
