    My Documents folder is on my D:

    When I add it to my library I lose the abilty to search it. If I remove it from the library I can add it to the index and all is fine. But I want it to be searchable whilst it's part of my library otherwise the Documents link on the start menu won't work

    Am I missing something obvious?

    Have you tried changing the default path for docs to point to your d drive?
    Start>then user name to bring up your personel folders, right click My Documents and select properties, location tab and then move, point to your d drive documents and then choose copy to transfer files that are there to the new location. (Saying yes copies any docs you have in the default including the hidden files that make the new locations icon the correct one) Once this is done the index will work without you having to add it.

    Hope that makes sense...
