I'm using Windows 7 French.
When I type a word in the search tab, TheBrain do not search inside Notes, only Thougths, Links and Events.

I've the same problem with TheBrain 9 and TheBrain 10. 

It's the same problem as in the following topic:

I've tried to change the language of TheBrain to English but with no luck.

Laurent,

We have seen a few instances where results are not returned due to the way Windows translates the actual attachment and/or thought note path in non-English versions of Windows. It certainly looks like this may be happening in your case. Please try creating an empty folder on your C drive called "Brain" (without the quotes.) Click on Options > Preferences > System to change the Storage location (click on Select Folder) to the new directory that you just created at C:\Brains. Next, be sure to add that location to Windows search (click Windows button, then type "Indexing" to open Indexing Options, click "Modify", and then navigate to C:\Brains and check the box next to it).

Restart TheBrain and test your search again. Please keep us posted with the results.

Thank you,
Matt

Thanks for the support

Hi Matt,

Changing to C: didn't correct the problem for me. 

But I finally managed to force TheBrain to look in the notes with the following procedure :

1 - I put the Brains folder on the D: where I store all my data and change the Storage location as explained in your post. Maybe it would have worked on C: but I reserve that for the software files.
2 - I edit the indexing options of Windows to delete unnecessary folders and specifically add the folder D: / Brains. Here too I probably could have left all the D partition but I wanted the re-indexing to be fast. I will add other directories later.
3 - I deleted and rebuilt the index.
4 - I closed TheBrain and reopened it. TheBrain now looks into the Notes as well as inside files.

Thanks for your help.
