Certain files under Windows Vista and Windows 7 are hard links.
"Everything" will not include hard links.
For example, on Windows 7 C:\windows\notepad.exe is a hard link to c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe
Only the original file c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe will show in "Everything".
Corrupt files and folders are automatically excluded by "Everything".
Please check your disk(s) for errors.
To check your disk(s) for errors:

- Click the Tools tab.
- Click Check now....
- Select Automatically fix file system errors.
- Click Start.
- If prompted to schedule the disk check the next time you restart the computer select Yes.
