I am trying to do a simple search to find all the files with a certain extention (example: *.dwg) using Windows XP. I can visually see the files in the folder I am searching but the search feature does not "find" them. What could be wrong? Any help is appreciated.

There should be a selection that says "MORE ADVANCED OPTIONS" in the search window, and make sure that all the options are checked, "Search hidden files and folders", "Search subfolders"
