Make Windows XP File Search Faster :

Searching for a different files and folders is something very easy with Windows XP but it may take a long time especially on the new hard drives on which you can save even several terabytes of data. In this situation, there is an option which will allow you to browse your files faster and you will get resoults as soon as file is found. Normal settings of computer search scans your hard and other drives step by step which make searching much longer but that thing you can modify and make it faster with the following instructions :
