Every time you perform a search, the results are based on the scope, the
folders, and types of files in which the search software looks. Depending on the
scope settings you have enabled, the results of your search can be drastically

software searches, and then you fine-tune the indexing service to index the files
you want to be indexed for speedy searches.
