The Indexing Service query cannot be completed successfully

    I'm trying to do a search for *.txt files containing a certain phrase
    and am unable to do so. When I try I get the following message:

    Search Companion

    The Indexing Service query cannot be completed successfully
    because the volumes you have specified are not indexed.

    I can do searches for *.txt files containing phrases in other
    directories - just not this particular one. How can I reenable it?
